      FT: LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      A comfortable win in the end for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, who book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

      They repeat their 3-0 win from Carrow Road on the opening day of the Premier League season after a brace from Takumi Minamino either side of a Divock Origi goal.

      Norwich had their moments, and had Christos Tzolis converted his penalty with the score at 1-0 then the game could have been different.

      But Caoimhin Kelleher denied him and Liverpool ended up progressing with ease.

      The Reds remain unbeaten in all competitions in 2021/22.

      PEEEEEEEEEEP!

      THAT'S FULL TIME!

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH!

      90. The referee's assistant indicates two minutes of added time.

      'You'll Never Walk Alone' rings around Carrow Road as the home fans filter their way out of the ground.

      89. This one is just creeping towards its conclusion now.

      Liverpool know they're through, and Norwich know they're beaten.

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      87. CHANCE!

      Norwich nearly have a consolation.

      The hosts attack through Billy Gilmour, who feeds Idah inside the Liverpool box.

      He has time to shoot, but fires his effort straight at Kelleher.

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      86. Liverpool substitution.

      Curtis Jones makes way for club captain Jordan Henderson.

      It's his 398th appearance in Liverpool colours.

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      86. Robertson's corner is a poor one.

      It fails to beat the first man stationed at the front post.

    • Giacomo Pisa

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      85. Liverpool corner.

      Jones is played in down the left hand side and has an age to look up and get a cross into the box.

      In the end he takes too long and when it is eventually played in his effort is deflected behind.

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      83. Another half chance for the hosts!

      Liverpool make a mess of clearing a cross into the box, and it falls to Idah.

      He tries an acrobatic overhead kick, but his effort has no power on it and it's safely gathered by Kelleher.

    • Giacomo Pisa

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      82. Or not!

      Pukki finds himself on his own in the box.

      His effort is neither a cross or a shot, and the ball dribbles wide of goal.

      He should be doing better there.

    • Giacomo Pisa

      LIVERPOOL 3-0 NORWICH

      80. That's a very smart finish by Minamino.

      The ball breaks to Oxlade-Chamberlain on the edge of the box, and he feeds it into the path of Minamino.

      Minamino delays shooting, drawing in the challenge of the Norwich defender, before poking past Gunn and into the back of the net.

      That should be Liverpool's name safely into the hat for the next round.

    • Giacomo Pisa

      GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLL!

      THAT WILL BE THAT!

      TAKUMI MINAMINO HAS A SECOND AND LIVERPOOL HAVE A THIRD!

      LIVERPOOL 2-0 NORWICH

      77. Norwich are readying another substitution.

      Ex Everton man Kieran Dowell is on, with Pierre Lees-Melou the man who makes way.

      LIVERPOOL 2-0 NORWICH

      76. Less than 15 minutes to play now at Carrow Road.

      Another Liverpool game kills the tie, while a Norwich one brings it back to life.

      They need to score quickly though if they want to find a route back into this game.

      REWIND

      Divock Origi celebrates with his Liverpool teammates after putting the Reds 2-0 up at Carrow Road.

      74. CLOSE!

      Norwich are gifted possession as Rupp intercepts a pass by Robertson.

      He takes aim from the edge of the box, but sends his effort wide of the mark.

      73. Norwich's first corner of the night is a poor one.

      Gilmour's delivery is headed away by Robertson at the front post.

      LIVERPOOL 2-0 NORWICH

      73. Norwich corner.

      Lees-Melou lets fly from the edge of the box which Gomez blocks behind.

      A chance for the hosts here.

      LIVERPOOL 2-0 NORWICH

      72. Oxlade-Chamberlain does shoot, but it's straight into the wall and Norwich break.

      Robertson puts a halt to the attack though, easing Pukki off the ball and winning possession back.

    • Giacomo Pisa

      LIVERPOOL 2-0 NORWICH

      72. Yellow card.

      Lees-Melou is the first man into the book.

      He brings down Curtis Jones from behind, 35 yards out from goal.

      Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fancies this.
