Liverpool 5-2 Norwich: Reds hammer Canaries to book fifth round place

The Reds easily go to the FA Cup fifth round, where they will host either Watford or Southampton. In manager Jurgen Klopp’s first game since announcing his departure at the end of the season; Ryan Gravenberch, Virgil van Dijk, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, and Curtis Jones all scored in the victory.

Prior to kickoff, the Liverpool manager, who made his departure from the team official on Friday, sat in reflective mode while the Kop sang ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

A rendition of ‘I’m so glad that Jurgen is a Red’ was heard in the opening minute, but the German would have been happy that the attention quickly switched to the on-field action because there was still plenty of football to be played, especially with the struggle going on four fronts.

The German manager said: “It’s emotional but I have to pull myself together. I received all the messages. I’m not made of wood.”
