Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Anfield will be packed when Liverpool and Norwich City take on each other in the FA Cup last 32 on Sunday afternoon. The Reds are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win and they are seen as hot favourites to beat the Championship side in front of home fans. Mohamed Salah picked up an injury during his time on international duty, whereas all Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominik Szoboszlai, Kostas Tsimikas, and Joel Matip remain in the recovery room. Wataru Endo is representing Japan at the Asian Cup.
The Canaries, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Liverpool by beating Bristol Rovers 3-1, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry at Anfield. Jurgen Kloop’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will make it to the last 16 without any difficulties. Defender Danny Batth should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won one of their last Champions League trophy's in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched six European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
