Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s League Cup third round home tie against Liverpool - and we had all the key lines first from a video chat with the boss at Colney. 

Farke has no fresh fitness issues from those who featured in the 3-1 Premier League defeat to Watford at Carrow Road.

But the City chief did confirm Todd Cantwell is set to miss out due to personal reasons.

Farke made a number of changes to his starting line up for the previous cup win over Bournemouth, with Christos Tzolis and Josh Sargent catching the eye in a 6-0 romp.

Kieran Dowell and Jacob Sorensen were both absent from the Hornets' matchday squad, although Farke revealed in the build up Sorensen had missed some training sessions with a dead leg.

Both were available on Saturday but not selected and the duo are in the mix for the Reds' midweek visit.

Christoph Zimmermann (ankle) is still ruled out. Sam Byram is yet to play any part this season after a setback in the summer, following his long layoff from two hamstring surgeries, while Przemyslaw Placheta had not been under consideration as he recovers from Covid.

Farke hopes Placheta can re-join training next week, but Byram has yet to train with the first team squad.

Reports in Poland earlier on Monday suggest Placheta has been named in Poland's provisional World Cup squad for next month's upcoming qualifiers against San Marino and Albania.
