Norwich vs Liverpool: Reds fancied to ease through

Kick-off: 1945, 21/09/2021

Stadium: Carrow Road

TV: Sky Sports

Liverpool will take a different team to Carrow Road for Tuesday’s EFL Cup clash than when winning here 3-0 in their Premier League opener.

However, the Reds are expected to have enough strength in depth to come through this tie against the struggling Canaries.

We like 6/5 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our first Norwich vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds

Norwich enjoyed a welcome respite from their top-flight troubles when hitting Bournemouth for six in the previous round.

Summer signings Christos Tzolis and Josh Sargent both hit doubles in that contest, with Kenny McLean and Lukas Rupp also on target in a solid line-up.

However, Daniel Farke admitted: “This was a game on Championship level, top Championship level, and it proves that if we played there then we would probably romp the league again.

“But the Premier League is a different animal and I have to make sure I don’t throw some lads too early into the cold water.”

Five straight defeats in the top flight have exposed the Canaries’ limitations, with Saturday’s 3-1 home loss to fellow new boys Watford especially damaging.

City have at least now scored in three straight home matches and are set to face a much-changed Reds defence here.

Looking at the Norwich vs Liverpool odds, we like 21/10 for an away win and both teams to score.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool travel to Carrow Road in great spirits following a 3-2 Champions League win over AC Milan and a 3-0 defeat of Crystal Palace which left them joint-top of the Premier League table.

Saturday’s result was a good one for our followers, as we had a clean sweep of three successful selections!

Jurgen Klopp does not have a great record in this competition, but does tend to field decent teams, except when a visit to Aston Villa clashed with the Club World Cup.

Attacking players such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones should be crying out for a chance to impress.

Reports on Merseyside suggest the Reds also have some highly-rated academy youngsters ready to step up.

Assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders told the club website: “I think our team is hungry, our squad is hungry to compete in each competition – and this is one of them.

“I think everybody says we don’t like these competitions but we like it because I feel this generation of players, this Liverpool team, deserves to fight as well for the national cups.

“We lost against Chelsea three years ago, two years ago we won the Club World Cup instead of playing the League Cup and then we lost to Arsenal on penalties.

“Everybody knew last year we created chance after chance against them. It’s not that we don’t like it.”

That attitude is good enough for us, so 15/2 for a 2-1 away win completes our Norwich vs Liverpool betting tips.
