Liverpool vs Norwich City Prediction in the FA Cup Tonight

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The schedule for Liverpool vs Norwich City will be presented in the fifth round (16 round) of the FA Cup at Anfield, Thursday morning, March 3, 2022. The match will take place from 03.15 WIB.

Both teams are competing in the Premier League. Liverpool currently occupies the second position of the standings with a value of 60.

Norwich City are at the bottom of the standings with 17 points. They have just swallowed three consecutive defeats ahead of their visit to Liverpool headquarters.

Liverpool are in the euphoria of victory after successfully sealing the English League Cup. This certainly has a fairly positive effect on the mentality of the players and of course they are very ready if they “only” face Norwich City.

Not to mention about the composition of players, however, the Reds are filled with a number of star players who are not comparable to what Norwich City has.

But speaking on the field, of course the case might be different. Because this is a competition conducted by English clubs.

Some time ago, everyone was shocked when Watford successfully held a 0-0 draw at a club like Manchester United in the English Premier League.

Victory is a fixed price for Liverpool. Because this can make their hopes of getting a second trophy this season wide open.
