MOTD pundit claims Jurgen Klopp brought ‘Gangnam Style’ football to England

Cup specialist Takumi Minamino kept Liverpool’s quest for an unprecedented quadruple on track with both goals in a 2-1 win over Norwich as Jurgen Klopp reached his first FA Cup quarter-final.

The Japan international has made the majority of his starts in knockout competitions and in a team registering 10 changes from the one which won the Carabao Cup at Wembley on Sunday his was an influential one.

Minamino now has seven goals and one assist in eight cup games this season and since the start of 2020 the 27-year-old has scored more than twice as many goals in domestic cup competitions (nine) than any other Liverpool player.

Lukas Rupp’s goal 14 minutes from time gave the visitors a lifeline but even a second-string Liverpool team were too experienced to succumb to late pressure as they booked their place in the sixth round for the first time since 2015.

FA Cup: Romelu Lukaku seals Chelsea’s FA Cup comeback against Luton amid Roman Abramovich exit

Chelsea capped another seismic day in the Stamford Bridge club’s history by narrowly avoiding an FA Cup shock, edging past Luton 3-2 at Kenilworth Road.

Romelu Lukaku tapped home Timo Werner’s cross late on to thwart the Hatters’ dreams of a first quarter-final since 1994, on the day when Roman Abramovich signalled the impending end of his Blues reign.

Werner scored and made both Chelsea’s other goals on a solid night for the Germany forward, with Saul Niguez also clipping home.

FA Cup fifth round: Romain Perraud stunner helps Southampton see off West Ham

Earlier tonight Romain Perraud’s stunning first-half rocket lit up St Mary’s as Southampton marched into the FA Cup quarter-finals by dispatching Premier League rivals West Ham 3-1.

French full-back Perraud stylishly set Saints on course for victory with his first goal for the club, lashing home a swerving strike from more than 25 yards.

Michail Antonio briefly levelled for the Hammers but James Ward-Prowse’s penalty – awarded following VAR intervention – and a late Armando Broja goal sent the hosts through.

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich

90+2 mins: John Rowe brings the ball down the left wing and passes it across to Billy Gilmour. He looks to play Kieran Dowell into the box but he stops his run thinking he is offside and Alisson comes over to scoop up the ball. Two minutes to go.

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich

90 mins: Liverpool are doing their best to close out this game. An aerial pass comes over to Milner who whips a header up to Sadio Mane making a run through the middle of the pitch. Mane comes up against Gibson and handles the ball giving Norwich a free kick and the chance to boot it long.

Four minutes of added time to play.

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich

86 mins: Kostas Tsimikas stops Josh Sargent from bursting down the right side and sends the resultant throw in to Alisson in goal. Liverpool work it quickly up the right side of the pitch and pass the ball inside to Luis Diaz. He takes it into the box, shimmies to ehe left and then cuts back on himself to lace a right footed effort wide of the right-hand post!

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich

83 mins: Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane are brought on for the last seven minutes replacing Divock Origi and Diogo Jota.

Save! Superb work from Rowe who receives the ball on the left side and drives through the channel. He takes on Milner and injects a touch of pace to work the ball past the makeshift right-back. He hits a left-footed effort at goal but Alisson dives across to the left and palms the ball wide of the far post.
