Pep Lijnders on developing and progressing young Liverpool talent

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:


Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

21 mins: Liverpool look comfortable and in control of the game. Their young players have started well and they’ve won a number of corners already. Conor Bradley gets high on the right wing and sees his cross into the box blocked before Norwich deal with the resultant corner.

Liverpool regain the ball though and work it out to Kaide Gordon on the right wing. He darts inside and flashes one wide from the edge of the box.

18 mins: Nice work from Ben Gibson who presses high and wins the ball off Oxlade-Chamberlain. He pokes it to Rupp who tries to link up with Tzolis but the forward is fouled just outside the box.

Chelsea-loanee Billy Gilmour stands over the free kick, takes a breath and then curls his effort just over the crossbar!

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

15 mins: Close! Almost a dream debut for Kaide Gordon as he drifts into the right side of the box and waits for a cross from Tsimikas. The Liverpool left-back intercepts a loose pass and obliges with a deep cross to the back post that skims the top of Gordon’s head. Oxlade-Chamberlain knocks the ball back into the area but Gunn comes out and claims it.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

12 mins: Liverpool swing consecutive corners into the box. Grant Hanley deals with the first one by heading it behind but he gets beaten in the air the second time. Ibrahima Konate jumping higher than the Norwich centre-back to win the header and send it narrowly over the crossbar.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

9 mins: A Norwich throw in over on the left wing comes to Lukas Rupp in the middle. He spots a nice run off the ball from Christos Tzolis into the area and dinks a pass over the Liverpool back line. The pass is too high for Tzolis to reach though and it goes over him before finishing safely in the hands of Caoimhim Kelleher.

Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool

6 mins: It’s a nightmare start for Norwich. They would have been hoping to play themselves into the game and limit Liverpool’s chances on goal. Daniel Farke spoke about needing to be better defensively and they’ve let a goal in from a set piece.

GOAL! Norwich 0 - 1 Liverpool (Minamino, 4’)⚽️

4 mins: What a start for Liverpool! Kostas Tsimikas swings a corner into the box from the left side. He picks out Divock Origi who rises highest and heads the ball down for Takumi Minamino. The striker knows where the goal is and shoots on the turn, placing the ball through the legs of Angus Gunn and into the far side of the goal! Liverpool take an early lead.

Norwich 0 - 0 Liverpool

3 mins: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain flicks a lovely ball over the top that bounces in the box. Angus Gunn comes off his line to get to the ball but Ben Gibson is under pressure from Divock Origi and Kaide Gordon so he heads the ball out for a corner instead.

Norwich 0 - 0 Liverpool

Kick off: Before kick off there is a minutes round of applause to honour former England star Jimmy Greaves who passed away on Sunday.

Norwich kick off the match. They have yet to win in the Premier League this season so tonight could be a chance for them to cut loose and take the attack to Liverpool.

Norwich vs Liverpool

The teams make their way out onto the pitch at a packed Carrow Road. Joe Gomez leads Liverpool this evening. Even with nine changes to his starting XI Jurgen Klopp has named a fairly strong side. It could be a tough night for Norwich.
