The Premier League is back! And it’s back with an episode of Friday night football that’s particularly compelling. Liverpool, which came oh-so-close to pipping Manchester City at the post in last year’s Premier League, welcomes Norwich City back to the Prem with a match at Anfield. The Reds, while they didn’t win the league, are now reigning Champions League winners, and bring back all the key players from their successful campaign of last year. While other challengers have bolstered their rosters over the summer, the conventional wisdom early on is that the Premier League is a two-team race, with Liverpool decidedly being one of those teams.

1) Sling TV

Sling Orange + Blue

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1, and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Liverpool vs. Norwich City in the Premier League opener: What to watch for

Liverpool is still rounding into form after a summer in which most players embarked on a tour of the U.S. One notable exception was Sadio Mane, who had Africa Cup of Nations duty for a Senegal team that made it to the finals, gave up a 2nd-minute goal to Algeria, and couldn’t find an equalizer. In the Community Shield match on Sunday, the Reds were edged by title rivals Manchester City 5-4 in PKs. While a Community Shield win is a nice way to kick off the season, losing it is certainly not indicative of how the season’s going to go for Liverpool. Getting an opening match at home against a newly promoted team, after all, is about the easiest pathway available to a title favorite.

That newly promoted team, Norwich City, got back to the Prem by winning the Championship outright. It’s certainly got a lot of history; the first-ever football chant is “On the Ball, City,” penned for the Canaries in 1890 and still used today. Truth is, though, they still have a Championship-caliber side on the ball, with veteran Dutch keeper Tim Krul and Swiss striker Josef Drmic among their most-recognizable players. Many pundits have Norwich to slot into the bottom three—specifically, 19th place—and only spending a year in England’s top-flight league before returning to the second tier.
