Posted by

One down, three to go – that has been the message put forward by various Liverpool stars in the wake of the club’s ninth Carabao Cup win.

What better way to back up such statements than in the upcoming FA Cup clash with Norwich City as the Reds look to deliver a special campaign for supporters that were somewhat let down last term.

Thiago Alcantara, injured in the warm-up ahead of the Wembley tie, is unable to make proceedings against the Canaries.

Ahead of Alisson Becker in between the sticks, its a much-changed backline featuring Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez in the centre of defence.

In midfield, Jurgen Klopp has selected a trio comprised of Curtis Jones, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Up top, the forward line of Mo Salah, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane favoured in the League Cup final have been replaced with Diogo Jota, Divock Origi and Taki Minamino.
