Traditionally a huge day for supporters, it signals the onset of a new campaign and offers a chance to assess key matches and look forward to what will hopefully become another title-winning term.
On the whole, the Reds have a fairly impressive curtain-raiser record throughout the Premier League’s 21-year history, having won 13 times, drawn four and lost only four.
Ironically, one of those defeats was against David Moyes’ Everton at Goodison Park last term, a victory that was the Scot’s fifth first-match triumph during his 11-year tenure with the Toffees.
Of course, on Wednesday, the 50-year-old will discover which team he will face during his top-flight debut in charge of the champions, an occasion that will draw the attention of an intrigued football world.
