(Liverpool-Norwich 2-1) Coach Jurgen Klopp left 10 of his last team’s reserve in the League Cup to secure Liverpool’s 11th consecutive win – and advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals.


This is the first time that Liverpool have reached the quarter-finals since the red shirts reached the semi-finals in the 2014/15 season, and the first time that German Klopp, who took charge of Liverpool in October 2015. He led the team to the quarter-finals.

Team spirit is the most important. We work for each other. “We are like one big family,” Liverpool’s Konstantinos Tsimikas says in an interview with Vsport1 after the match.

But it got stuck in a thread a bit when Lucas Robb – played by Josh Sargent to perfection – pared a cannonball past Alisson Becker 13 minutes from the end to make it 2-1.

Complete throttle from the start. What we usually get from this edge, expert Vsport1 commentator Ron Bratsith thought before the start of the FA Cup quarter-final match – and aimed at Liverpool.

from the direction of Matthias Normans Norwich, the underdog – also by Pratsith – was left little chance due to the home side’s penalty – a difficult League Cup final win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Searsgles: Jurgen Klopp managed to lead Liverpool to the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time.

Curtis Jones was a disappointment. In the ninth minute of play in the quarter-final match, the 21-year-old pulled the ball in a 16-meter line over Norwich goalkeeper Tim Kroll (33) – at which point it “fell” on the crossbar. higher.

Six minutes later, Teemu Pukki managed to give Norwich 1-0. Finn did not. Seconds later, Liverpool’s Diogo Jota gave Matthias Norman a break. This didn’t seem to affect the Norwegian, who continued to be a driving force from the visitors’ midfield.

– He is a strong man, not keen on nibbling, as Ron Bratzith believes.

That power got a shot into the arc when Greek Konstantinos Tsimikas left the ball precisely to Belgium’s Divock Origi, who made a feathered move in a tight position and lifted it to Japan’s Takumi Minamino – who in turn went with his right wrist straight from a five-meter knot.

1-0 after 27 minutes.

The first: Liverpool’s Minamino 1-0 behind Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul.


Liverpool angle from the left by Tsimikas, the ball across Norwich captain Ben Gibson’s slightly low head – and from that skull: down Minamino’s sole leg. Right wrist this time as well. The ball flew across the left post to the back of Kruls for short fingers.

Premier League table No. 2 vs No. 20: 2-0 at the break.

Charged hope: Lucas Robb points in a reduction to 2-1.

In front of a cold, crowded Anfield stadium, it was mostly a matter of not giving hope to the opponent. Matthias Norman was substituted for Billy Gilmore with half an hour left. The performance could be described as tame, with even Lukas Robb almost out of the blue – or red – running straight and past Alisson Becker in the Liverpool goal.
