Liverpool are the joint-most successful side in EFL Cup history, having won the competition eight times (level with current holders Manchester City). However, the Reds have not won the trophy since 2012, and last reached the final in 2016 when they were beaten by Man City. Jurgen Klopp’s side go into this game having enjoyed an excellent start to the new season, still unbeaten after six games across all competitions, winning five including their Premier League opener against Norwich. The weekend brought a fairly comfortable 3-0 scoreline over Crystal Palace, but Liverpool were made to work hard for the victory and will be hoping for an easier ride at Carrow Road.
Norwich have had the complete opposite start to the season to Liverpool, currently rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table after five games. The Canaries are yet to get a point on their return to the top flight, and were handed their fifth loss in a 3-1 defeat to Watford at the weekend. Daniel Farke’s men have tasted victory just once so far this season, in the EFL Cup second round, beating Championship side Bournemouth 6-0 to set up this all-Premier League tie.
Norwich vs Liverpool: Match Stats
He has drawn a blank in four consecutive matches including 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend, but with Roberto Firmino still injured and Liverpool lacking other options, Diogo Jota is likely to start once again at Carrow Road. The Portuguese forward started the 2021/22 season well, scoring two in his opening two matches including a 3-0 win over Norwich, and in what may be a slightly rotated side, Jota will be looking to end his drought.
Norwich may have scored six goals in their win over Bournemouth, but they should expect no such luck on Tuesday with Liverpool looking rock solid in defence. The Reds have conceded just three goals in their six games across all competitions so far, keeping four clean sheets including two in each of their games away from Anfield.
