Liverpool played for the first time since Jürgen Klopp announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season. The Reds put forth a fun display for their German manager despite a good sprinkling of youth in the starting lineup against Norwich City in the FA Cup.
Two of those youngsters, Conor Bradley and James McConnell, had fantastic outings. McConnell provided a fantastic cross to Curtis Jones to open the scoring, and showed no fear as he put in some crunching tackles in a holding midfield role. Bradley continued to display his quality at right back, culminating with a sensational sequence of 1-2 passing while on the run to set up Darwin Núñez for a goal. He got a second assist while showing great technical ability to volley the ball down across the face of goal form Ryan Gravenberch to turn home.
Darwin Núñez was again a menace, scoring a goal and almost uprooting to goal with a strike against the far post. Diogo Jota scored on a fantastic volleyed finish of his own, and was a constant threat on and off the ball. Curtis Jones opened the scoring with a fantastic header, and was again a lynchpin for the team in midfield.
