Early in the game, Jones also struck the post for the Reds. Norwich, on the other hand, played well in the second half.

They came close via Sargent before Rupp set up a tense last 15 minutes for the Canaries when he grabbed one back, but Liverpool held on.

Liverpool’s name will be drawn in today’s draw, with quarter-final matches scheduled for later this month.

The Reds have now gone 14 games without losing, and their next league match is against West Ham.

Norwich lost for the fourth time this season to Liverpool, and they’ll be looking to get back on track against struggling Brentford at the weekend.

?“He’s been patient. Obviously with the players we have, there’s competition all over the field. But every time he comes in, he’s ready and he delivers. He’s such a nice guy. You’re delighted for him every time he scores. He just carries on. Every single day he’s at that level. He’s brilliant in training, [has a] great temperament no matter what’s happening, you can rely on him. He comes in and keeps scoring goals – and important goals as well. Absolutely delighted for him to get those two,” James Milner told the club website.

While the Red’s head coach – Jürgen Klopp added that;

?“His impression was obvious with scoring two goals and not only that – he had a lot more top, top football moments. He was a constant threat tonight, he was mobile, he was quick. He was technically on an incredibly high level; it was really windy tonight and when you then saw how he controlled the balls when he had to bring down the high balls, that was all really, really, really good. I’m not surprised, I know how good he is and tonight he showed it to the public again, which is absolutely great.”
