Norwich vs Liverpool LIVE: Carabao Cup updates

Pep Lijnders on developing and progressing young Liverpool talent

Liverpool face Norwich City in the Carabao Cup third round as the Reds look to get back to trophy-winning ways, having finished empty-handed last season after battling against an injury crisis in defence. Jurgen Klopp’s side have started the new campaign in tremendous form, beating Crystal Palace at the weekend after starting their Champions League group with victory over AC Milan, too – they are at the top of the Premier League table with Chelsea and have conceded just once along the way, against the Blues themselves.

Back in mid-August it was to Carrow Road that Liverpool first travelled, winning 3-0 against the newly promoted Canaries. Matters haven’t become any easier for Norwich since then, as they have lost all five league games so far, scoring only twice and sitting rock bottom of the league tables. Respite did come in the League Cup second round when they hammered Bournemouth, but Daniel Farke’s side must find a winning formula quickly.

The manager described the weekend defeat to Watford as a “setback,” but added that Norwich “know that we are a cup team” and “have proved this on different occasions” over the last few seasons, as he urged his side to find a response on Tuesday evening. Follow all the action live below:

GOAL! Norwich 0 – 3 Liverpool (Minamino, 80’)⚽️

80 mins: Game over. A tussle for the ball over Liverpool’s right wing ends with it popping out to Oxlade-Chamberlain. He slides it into the box for Minamino who carries it towards goal. None of the Norwich defenders try to tackle him so he delays, delays and delays before nudging the ball past Gunn as the goalkeeper drops to stop the chance. Easy-peasy.

78 mins: Pierre Lees-Melou is taken off by Daniel Farke who brings on Kieran Dowell for the closing stages of this match. Liverpool just need to see it out now. A goal for Norwich would make it interesting.

75 mins: Chance! Robertson sprays a poor crossfield pass into Rupp who has time on the ball. He brings it down, picks his target and blasts the effort over the goal. Norwich’s finishing has been dreadful tonight. They’ve had four or five scoreable chances but keep missing the target.

72 mins: Lees-Melou slips as he’s about to tackle Jones and clumsily clatters into the Liverpool midfielder. He picks up a yellow card for the challenge.

Oxlade-Chamberlain takes the free kick. It’s about 20-yards or so out from goal but he only manages to whack the ball into the wall.

Norwich 0 – 2 Liverpool

69 mins: Daniel Farke is chasing the game and needs to take a few more risks. He brings on Teemu Pukki and Milot Rashica who replace Christos Tzolis and Bali Mumba.

They’re like-for-like swaps but both players bring more experience.

66 mins: Giannoulis and Bradley come together in the middle of the pitch and the Norwich wingback lands awkwardly. He gets a looking over but looks okay to continue.

Jurgen Klopp makes another change bringing Andy Robertson on for Kostas Tsimikas.

Norwich 0 – 2 Liverpool

63 mins: Chance! Andrew Omobamidele makes a mess of a long ball and allows Origi to take control of it on the left wing. He slots it neatly into the box where Gordon waits. He goes for goal on the half-volley but doesn’t get over the top of the shot and spoons his chance over the goal.

Norwich 0 – 2 Liverpool

57 mins: Norwich are fighting hard to win the ball in midfield but Liverpool are very composed in possession. Oxlade-Chamberlain makes another decent run with the ball before firing off a shot from around 25-yards. It takes a deflection on the way through and goes out for another Liverpool corner.
