Norwich have struggled in the Premier League since returning to the top flight this season but thrashed Bournemouth 6-0 in the last round.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will sit this one out because of illness, although chances are he would have been rested anyway because Liverpool are expected to heavily rotate – even Jurgen Klopp didn’t face the press ahead of the game, sending assistant Pep Lijnders instead.

Roberto Firmino, Thiago Alcantara, Harvey Elliott and Neco Williams miss out through injury, but there could be starts for the likes of Curtis Jones, Nat Phillips and Caoimhin Kelleher.


Norwich vs Liverpool predicted lineups

Norwich: Gunn; Mumba, Gibson, Omobamidele, Giannoulis; Lees-Melou, McLean, Rupp; Dowell, Sargent, Tzolis

Liverpool: Kelleher; Bradley, Konate, Gomez, Tsimikas; Jones, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Gordon, Origi, Minamino


Norwich vs Liverpool head-to-head record

Norwich and Liverpool have met at Carrow Road already this season, with the latter taking all three points with a 3-0 Premier League win last month.

It was 1990 the last time these clubs met in anything other than a top flight league match. Norwich haven’t beaten Liverpool at all in 15 attempts since April 1994 when Jeremy Goss scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at Anfield in the Premier League.

Even with rotations for both sides and potentially a couple of very inexperienced players in the Liverpool lineup, the visiting Reds should have too much for their Norfolk hosts.

The majority of Liverpool’s second string are international-calibre players and that is likely to be telling, although it is likely to be a closer game than the recent 3-0 meeting.

Prediction: Norwich 1-2 Liverpool
