Team news: Todd Cantwell to miss Liverpool Carabao Cup tie

Head coach Daniel Farke will be without three players for Norwich City’s match with Liverpool in the third round of the Carabao Cup but has not fresh injury concerns in his squad.

Christoph Zimmermann is still out with his ankle issue, Prezmysław Płacheta will not return to first team training until next week as he battles back from a Covid-19 illness and Todd Cantwell will miss the game due to personal reasons.

However, other than that it is a full squad to choose from and Farke expects to make changes to ensure that the intensity of his starting XI is spot on.

“Once you have to play against the best teams in the world and we do this on league level and now we do this against Liverpool in the cup, we have to do this with full intensity,” he explained.

“For that I trust my whole squad. We have three games in seven days, and it is important to bring some recovered players on the pitch, but not to rest other players. It is more like to have players who can go with this intensity against the ball in order to be competitive."
