Norwich City 0-3 Liverpool RECAP: Minamino at the double to down sorry Canaries

Many of Liverpool’s younger stars are set to get a taste of first-team action tonight as the Reds begin their Carabao Cup campaign on familiar ground.

The Anfield club has already made the long trip across to Norfolk this season, running out as comfortable winners in their Premier League opener.

This encounter is likely to be a different story. Liverpool were at full strength last month, but will almost certainly be without their biggest stars for this encounter.

Jürgen Klopp has historically preferred to use this competition to give first-team opportunities to younger talent, and the German is likely to do the same here.


Caoimhín Kelleher and Curtis Jones are already confirmed starters for this one, with more fringe players and young talents likely to join them in the matchday squad.

Meanwhile, a fairytale cup run would be an ideal distraction from what is already proving to be a very tough league season for Norwich, so Daniel Farke could choose a strong squad for this one in the hope of progressing deeper into the tournament.

The Canaries put six past Bournemouth in the last round, showing they mean business in this competition.

No matter who lines up for Liverpool here, they will have to be at the top of their game to beat a Norwich side which will have nothing to lose in this one.
