Goal Scorer:

After providing the assist for Kiwior's unfortunate own goal at the Emirates, it was revealed that Alexander-Arnold had suffered a painful hyperextension of his knee in North London, but the right-back might be in contention to make his competitive comeback on Sunday.

Andrew Robertson was already back on the bench at Craven Cottage in midweek, three months on from dislocating his shoulder while playing for Scotland, and Klopp is also expecting Dominik Szoboszlai (hamstring) to participate in the fourth round barring any late complications.

However, none of Joel Matip (knee), Ben Doak (knee), Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Thiago Alcantara (hip) or Kostas Tsimikas (collarbone) are ready to play, while international duo Wataru Endo and Mohamed Salah are not at Klopp's disposal either, although the latter is currently undergoing treatment for a muscular injury which forced him to fly home from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Gomez, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Jones, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Jota, Gakpo, Nunez

In contrast, Norwich have no Africa Cup of Nations or Asian Cup absentees to factor in for the fourth round, but the Canaries did lose Danny Batth to a hamstring problem in the first half of their replay with Bristol Rovers.

Batth's issue is not a serious one, but Wagner has conceded that the centre-back is facing between 10 and 14 days on the sidelines. However, the Canaries boss should be able to call upon a ready-made replacement.

Grant Hanley was not involved in the loss to Leeds following a back problem, but the experienced defender did return to training prior to the Elland Road sojourn and is expected to be involved in the fourth-round tie.

However, Wagner has revealed that both Josh Sargent and Jon Rowe, the latter of whom broke his hand in the Leeds encounter, will not make the trip to Anfield.
Norwich City possible starting lineup:
Long; Stacey, Duffy, Hanley, Giannoulis; McLean, Nunez; Sainz, Sara, Hernandez; Idah
Prediction: Liverpool 3-0 Norwich City
