Norwich v Liverpool match odds
Norwich have endured a tough start upon their return to the Premier League.
Two second-half goals from Ismaila Sarr condemned them to a 3-1 home defeat by Watford on Saturday and they have lost their opening five league matches.
Norwich have shipped 14 goals in the process and it extends a run that has seen Daniel Farke’s side lose each of their last 14 games in the top flight, scoring just three times and conceding 38 goals in the process.
Norwich’s only competitive win this season came in this competition – a 6-0 win over Championship side Bournemouth in the second round. Triumphs in this competition in the 1961-62 and 1984-85 seasons represent the only major pieces of silverware that Norwich have collected in their 119-year history.
Liverpool have had a near-perfect start to the season, and boss Jurgen Klopp would love to win a domestic cup.
The Reds join the League Cup at the third-round stage and are 8/1 third favourites behind Manchester City and Chelsea to lift the Cup.
They won their fourth game of the Premier League season, defeating Crystal Palace 3-0 at Anfield on Saturday, and are level with Chelsea on 13 points at the top of the table.
Liverpool romped to an opening-day 3-0 win over the Canaries with goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. They are 4/7 to win the tie in 90 minutes in the Norwich v Liverpool betting tips.
Beautiful goals deserve beautiful angles 😍

Norwich v Liverpool head-to-head
Norwich have failed to win any of the last 15 meetings with Liverpool. There have been just two draws in that span and the draw is on offer at 3/1.
There have been three goals or more scored in 12 of those 15 meetings and it is 8/13 for three or more to be scored in the tie.
Despite their poor record against Liverpool, Norwich have managed to score at least once in nine of their last 15 games and it is 2/1 for the Reds to win but concede in the Norwich v Liverpool betting tips.
Norwich v Liverpool team news
Bali Mumba will hope to start at right-back for Norwich. Sam Byram, Przemyslaw Placheta and Christoph Zimmermann are all sidelined.
Josh Sargent, Dimitris Giannoulis and Christos Tzolis are among those who are set to start
Firmino is ruled out for the visitors, along with Harvey Elliott. Neco Williams, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Thiago may also be absentees, as Klopp will likely rest the big boys for this one.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino, Curtis Jones and Nat Phillips are the fringe players in line to start at Carrow Road.
Divock Origi was a surprise starter against AC Milan last week and may be called upon again by Klopp.
Norwich v Liverpool key battles
Farke’s biggest concern is plugging a leaky rearguard. The Canaries’ lack of confidence means that even a second-string Liverpool side will fancy their chances and the likes of Minamino and Origi will have the chance to impress.
Japan international Minamino has scored just three times in 29 appearances in the league for Liverpool, but he appears to fit in well when he does make fleeting appearances and is 9/5 to score at any time.
Likewise, Oxlade-Chamberlain is working his way back to full fitness and he will be keen to show he is worthy of a permanent place in the side. He is likely to play a more advanced role in the midfield and he is 12/5 to find the net at any stage.
