Daniel Farke has unveiled a defensive three for Norwich City's League Cup third round home tie against Liverpool at Carrow Road.

Farke indicated at his pre-match press call he would shuffle his pack, with the visitors set to follow suit. The German was true to his word with nine changes from the weekend's league defeat to Watford.

Farke has opted to harness Andrew Omobamidele, Grant Hanley and Ben Gibson in a three, with Bali Mumba and Dimitris Giannoulis as wing backs.

The other notable tweak is a front two with Christos Tzolis and Adam Idah set to form a youthful spearhead.

City take a break from a difficult Premier League start to host the Reds in a repeat of their opening day league fixture in Norfolk.

Our City correspondents Paddy Davitt and Connor Southwell reacted to the team news live from Carrow Road. Recap in the video above.
