Liverpool vs Norwich City LIVE Football Score 2 Mar 2022
About the match
Liverpool is going head to head with Norwich City starting on 2 Mar 2022 at 20:15 UTC at Anfield stadium, Liverpool city, England. The match is a part of the FA Cup.
Fresh off their League Cup triumph, Liverpool will shift their focus to the FA Cup as they renew hostilities with Norwich City at Anfield on Wednesday night.
At the end of a long but thoroughly exciting goalless stalemate, Liverpool triumphed over Chelsea on penalties in the final of the League Cup. All 11 of Jurgen Klopp’s men who finished the game were on target in the shootout as the Reds captured a record 9th League Cup title.
The 2021-22 season has gotten increasingly better for Liverpool since the turn of the year. They have catapulted themselves back into the title race from a place where it had almost become an unrealistic possibility.
They are also still in the FA Cup, where they face a team they have used as a bit of a punching bag in recent times. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 17 matches across all competitions against the Canaries. They’ve won their last six games against Norwich City with a combined scoreline of 19-6.
Norwich City, who sit at the bottom of the Premier League table, have lost all of their last three matches. Surviving the drop this season seems unlikely for Dean Smith’s men and the FA Cup is the last thing they have to fight for.
Their last win across all competitions came in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Wolves in the first week of February. Kenny McLean scored the only goal of the game in first half stoppage time as Norwich City overcame the odds to beat Bruno Lage’s men at the Molineux.

In the last 10 meetings between the two sides, Liverpool have won nine while one match has ended in a draw. The last time the two sides clashed was earlier this month in the Premier League and the Merseysiders won the game 3-1 at Anfield.
