Liverpool v Norwich: Predictions, team news, stats & more

Liverpool are still in the hunt for four trophies and they will be looking to make further progress in the FA Cup when they host Championship side Norwich City in the fourth round on Sunday.

We now know that this season will be the last of Jurgen Klopp's time in charge of the Reds and he will no doubt be keen to add to the FA Cup title they claimed two years ago, when they prevailed in a penalty shootout against Chelsea.

Liverpool v Norwich Predictions

Liverpool -2 goal handicap - 20/21

Sunday's FA Cup tie at Anfield is likely to have a better atmosphere than might otherwise have been the case after Friday's shock announcement that Jurgen Klopp is set to step down from his role at the end of the season.

Klopp has been with the Reds since 2015, winning the Premier League in 2019-20, and he would no doubt love to sign off with a second FA Cup success, having lifted the famous trophy in 2021-22.

The German's current team are still in the hunt for four trophies this season, having reached the EFL Cup final with their 3-2 aggregate semi-final victory over Fulham and they have also booked a place in the last-16 of the Europa League and are top of the Premier League standings.

That success brings with it a congested fixture list and, while Klopp fielded a weakened line-up in the second leg against Fulham, he will also have an eye on a busy week ahead in the Premier League, with Chelsea visiting Anfield on Wednesday, before Liverpool head to London to face Arsenal next Sunday.

Facing a Championship team at home gives Klopp an opportunity to rest one or two of his top players, but he should still have the resources available to him to comfortably secure his team's passage to the fifth round.

The Reds have a great head-to-head record against the Canaries, winning the last seven meetings, and they have not lost any of the last 18 games against Norwich, whose last victory in this fixture came in 1994.

Liverpool had won their previous five games before the 1-1 draw in the second leg against Fulham, thrashing Bournemouth 4-0 in their last league outing and winning 2-0 at Arsenal in the third round of this competition.

Norwich have been inconsistent in the Championship this year, although they retain some quality performers, having been relegated from the top-flight only two years ago.

They do most of their best work at home, though, and have won only four of their 15 away games in the league this season, conceding an average of two goals per game on the road.

Liverpool knocked Norwich out of the competition in the fifth round at Anfield two years ago. The score that day was 2-1 but in their current form, a wider margin win for the home team seems likely. 

Taking the Reds to win by at least three goals makes plenty of appeal on a day when the players will be keen to show their appreciation for their manager.

Diogo Jota anytime goalscorer - 5/6

Diogo Jota has been am invaluable member of the Liverpool squad for four seasons since arriving from Wolves and this is exactly the kind of fixture in which he should thrive.

Jota has made the most of his chances for the Reds this season, scoring 11 goals with seven coming in the Premier League, including a double in the recent 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

He has also got on the scoresheet in the Europa League and EFL Cup, as well as bagging a couple of international goals for Portugal.

The low point in Jota's season came when he received a red card just 24 minutes after coming on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat at Tottenham in September, but he has not even picked up a yellow card for his club since then.

The Reds have scored 21 goals in their last eight games and their forwards should enjoy the opportunity to cut loose against only the second team from below the top-flight that they have faced this season.

They beat Championship leaders Leicester 3-1 in the League Cup and should find Norwich's defence even more accommodating.

Jota looks to have a great chance to add to his goal tally, so he is advised for an anytime goalscorer bet.
