Liverpool started their season off right with a 3-0 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road. And in the stands, cheering them on the whole time, was the away Kop, in full voice for the first time in over a year.

James Milner was a dark horse to start the game on Saturday, but the veteran midfielder played all 90 minutes of the game. After, he talked to the official site about how good it felt to be back in front of a roaring crowd.

“It’s incredible,” Milner said. “I remember the first few times I stepped out when there was nobody there and coming out of the tunnel it was the first time it really hit you because normally when you step out of the tunnel you either get the roar or booed or something, anything would have done, but it was just quiet and that’s what really hit you.

“But having our fans here today singing all the way through and seeing them at the end, amazing to have them back and obviously it will be special next week at Anfield as well. We’ve missed them and hopefully we can keep putting in performances and getting results like today for them.”

While the away fans are one thing, having a full house this weekend at Anfield to watch Liverpool take on Burnley will be an amazing experience.
