Liverpool dispatched Championship side Cardiff City 3-1 in their fourth-round tie at Anfield today. Despite a frustrating first half, the Reds were lethal in a three-goal second half that saw Harvey Elliott score his first senior goal in his long-anticipated return from an ankle injury and new signing Luis Díaz impress by setting up Takumi Minamino for LFC’s second.
Following the win, Liverpool can now look forward to a matchup with Norwich City in the fifth round of the competition after the draw that took place shortly before kickoff. Norwich booked their place in the next round with a 1-0 victory at Wolverhampton yesterday.
The Reds will be heavy favorites to extend their 5 match winning streak and 16 match unbeaten streak against Norwich. They’ll also have a chance to knock the Canaries out of a second competition this season after eliminating them in the third round of the League Cup this past September.
