Liverpool were made to work hard for their EFL Cup triumph in the final against Chelsea. Following a grueling 0-0 draw after extra time, they still had to score 11 post-match penalties before they emerged victorious. The Reds will be hoping for a less difficult game when they take on Norwich City at home. Nevertheless, this is not a guarantee as the FA Cup is known to produce many upsets
Coach Jurgen Klopp is expected to make some changes to help the team recover from the weekend’s tough game. The team is still in contention for three more trophies, including the premier league, champions league, and this FA Cup. Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Harvey Elliott and even Divock Origi are all contenders to start if some first-team members are to be rested. Everyone else is available except for Thiago Alacantara and Roberto Firmino.
These are tough times for Norwich City and they would not be happy to come up against Liverpool. They lost all their last 3 matches and are sitting at the bottom of the table. Their last match was a 2-0 loss away to Southampton and they risk another loss on the road in this match. With the Canaries staring at relegation at the end of the season, the FA Cup remains the only competition in which they can still play for with the hope of getting something.
Coach Dean Smith will have the whole team that played against Southampton in their last match except for captain Grant Hanley who is suspended. Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele are still out with injury while Jakob Sorensen could make a return from his knee injury. Pierre Lees-Melou is also an option to add a different dimension to the game. For Norwich, it will be about throwing all they got into this game and hoping for a positive outcome.
