Norwich will hope to return to the Premier League in perfect fashion on Saturday, as Alex Neil's side attempt to overcome Alan Pardew's ambitious Crystal Palace side.
The 2014/15 play-off winners are back in the top flight after spending just one season in the Championship, while their opponents, who have become a formidable force under Pardew, will be looking for another top-half finish.
Ahead of the weekend's match-up, here are a few of the best Opta stats...
12 - Norwich City are winless in their last 12 opening day matches in league competition (D6 L6). Meanwhile, the Eagles have lost their last four season openers.
1 - The Canaries have scored exactly once in 10 of their last 12 league games against Palace, failing to score in each of the other two.
3 - Palace have only lost two of their last seven visits to Carrow Road, winning three of their last five.
15 - No Championship midfielder scored more goals last term than Bradley Johnson (15) – level with Matt Ritchie and Bakary Sako.
6 - If last season's Premier League had started when Alan Pardew took over at Crystal Palace, the Eagles would have finished sixth.
68 - Norwich won 68% of their regular season league games under Alex Neil last term; they won 42% under Neil Adams before him.
4 - Crystal Palace had the fewest direct free kick attempts in the Premier League last season (13) but scored the joint-most (4, level with Tottenham).
