Norwich City won’t be taking too many chances with their team selection when it comes to this clash against Liverpool, with Daniel Farke effectively ready to throw his reserve team under a bus and focus on the significant matter of keeping the Canaries afloat in the Premier League this season.

Ben Gibson, Billy Gilmour and Todd Cantwell are among the players likely to be involved in the game and we’re pretty sure that they’ll offer an attacking approach in order to try and get the game won in ninety minutes, with Norwich set to be facing a Liverpool side who are going to be without Mohamed Salah.

Due to a hectic programme of Premier League and Champions League fixtures, we’re likely to see lots of fringe players turn out for the Merseyside team, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Curtis Jones likely to make a start for Liverpool.

It has been noticeable that Jurgen Klopp’s side have been involved in many high-scoring encounters when it comes to EFL Cup matches, with the German unprepared to compromise when it comes to the chief targets this season and we might also see a bright performance from the underused Takumi Minamino.
