Norwich vs Liverpool predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Carabao Cup fixture tonight



Norwich City will look to end their Carabao Cup drought this season and their next opponents in the competition are Liverpool on Tuesday night.

The Canaries haven’t won the trophy since 1985 and they face stiff competition in the Reds who are back to some of their best form this season.

While Jurgen Klopp likely won’t play the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, their heroics could inspire the players rotated into the squad to further Liverpool’s ambitions this season.

But Norwich will be out to create their own heroes as a home victory over Liverpool would be a big boost for the club after a difficult start to the campaign, so it is all to play for in Tuesday’s match.

Here’s all you need to know about the match.

The match will kick off at 7.45pm BST on Tuesday, 21 September at Carrow Road.
