Captain Options

Divock Origi would relish a chance to play up front and pose a selection problem for the manager. He has been largely held to substitute appearances of late.

Andrew Robertson can bring home points at both ends of the pitch. Liverpool are expected to keep a clean sheet and Robertson is also on corner duties.

Differential Pick

Takumi Minamino has impressed in the limited number of chances he has got for Liverpool. He can gain handsome points for the users in this game.

Likely Winner:

  • Norwich City has won their previous eight home League Cup matches, scoring at least three goals in each of those victories and a total of 34 goals. Only one of their victories, a 3-0 triumph against West Bromwich Albion in September 2015, came against Premier League opponents.
  • Liverpool has been ousted from five of their past six League Cup matches against Premier League opponents, with their lone success coming on penalties in the fourth round of the 2019/20 season following a 5-5 draw with Arsenal at Anfield.
  • Norwich’s 6-0 win over Bournemouth in the second round was identical to their 7-1 triumph over Halifax Town in November 1963. On their first appearances in the tournament, Christos Tzolis and Joshua Sargent both scored braces.
  • Despite making several changes, Liverpool are still the favorites to win the encounter.
