Liverpool progressed into the Carabao Cup fourth round with a 3-0 victory at Norwich after Takumi Minamino hit a brace and Caoimhin Kelleher denied Christos Tzolis from the penalty spot in the first half at Carrow Road.

The all-Premier League clash had the caveat of both clubs making wholesale changes, 18 in total, and one of those Minamino fired the Reds ahead inside four minutes.

Jurgen Klopp’s side almost conceded before the break when the Canaries forced a spot-kick, but Kelleher came to the rescue and Divock Origi’s first goal in 12 months was followed by a second for Minamino to clinch the win. Relive all the action live below:


Half-time: Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

45+2 mins: Liverpool lead at half-time. Takumi Minamino put the Reds in front with just four minutes on the clock. Conor Bradley was having a decent game before he hacked Dimitris Giannoulis to the ground in the penalty area. Not to worry though as his goalkeeper made up for the mistake by saving Christos Tzolis’s penalty kick.

Plenty of action in the first 45, finger crossed for more of the same when we come back.

SAVED! Kelleher denies Tzolis

43 mins: Christos Tzolis takes the penalty and hits it straight down the middle. Kelleher dives to the right but manages to stop the shot with the tips of his feet. The rebound comes out to Idah who whacks it back at goal but the chance is blocked by Joe Gomez!

Penalty to Norwich!

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

42 mins: Tzolis drills a shot from just outside the box and forces Kelleher into a sharp save but he parries the ball to Giannoulis. The winger looks for a follow up effort but Bradley tackles him from behind and brings him to ground. Darren England points straight to the spot and Norwich have the chance to get back into this game!

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

39 mins: Gordon does well to keep a diagonal ball in play and gives it to Bradley who’s bombed forward on an underlapping run. He slots it into the box for Origi who gets a weak shot away and leaves Gunn with an easy save.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

36 mins: Gilmour beats the Liverpool press and attempts to slot Idah in behind. His through ball comes into the area but Konate is on the right side of the Norwich striker and manages to shield the ball to his goalkeeper.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

33 mins: Chance! Giannoulis is finding some success on the left hand side for Norwich. He drives down the wing before cutting the ball back into the box. Tzolis flicks it on and finds Idah wide open. He goes for goal with a side footed effort but puts no power behind the shot and Kelleher gets in behind it.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

30 mins: Oxlade-Chamberlain takes a knock to the head but he’s okay to continue after a check up from the medical team. Norwich are growing nicely into this game. They’re seeing more of the ball now and Liverpool’s press isn’t as intense as it was.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

27 mins: Chance! This isn’t the easiest chance for Tzolis but probably the best he’s had so far. Gilmour combines with Bali Mumba on the right side to find a way into the box. Mumba gives him the ball and he moves into the inside right before chipping it towards the near post. Tzolis squeezes inbetween the Liverpool centre-backs, wins the header and knocks it over the bar.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

24 mins: Dimitris Giannoulis finds some space on the left wing and waits for Tzolis to make a run into the box. He times his pass beautifully to keep the striker onside and Liverpool have some defending to do. Adam Idah moves into the middle of the area waiting for a cutback but Tzolis goes it alone and fires a shot straight at Kelleher who clings onto it.
