Liverpool 2-1 Norwich: Extended highlights

Jürgen Klopp opted to make 10 changes to his line-up for Wednesday night's 2-1 win over Norwich City in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup. 

Takumi Minamino scored twice in the first half at Anfield as the Reds reached the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since 2015.

Tsimikas told Liverpoolfc.com: "Taki's an unbelievable player, in my opinion. We saw every player, no matter when he will play, will be ready – this is 100 per cent sure. We are hungry for that. 

"We will play for the win, we give everything. No matter who is playing, this is our mentality, this is our team spirit. We go for it no matter who is playing. You have to give everything for the win. 

"Liverpool is, for me, the best club in the world. Whenever I play, I give absolutely everything. Whenever they give me the chance, I want to be the best player – I think it's the same for all the boys. 

"The crowd was unbelievable, you enjoy playing in front of them. We can say a big thanks because once more it was a full stadium and we made them happy with this win."

A matter of days after lifting the Carabao Cup, the Reds' journey in another domestic cup competition continued following the victory over Dean Smith's Canaries. 

Minamino's brace was enough to secure progression into the last eight of the FA Cup, despite a Lukas Rupp strike setting up a nervy ending. 

"It was very, very tough for us, a very intense game," Tsimikas continued. "All the boys gave absolutely everything. 

"I want to say congratulations to all the boys. We deserved this win, we are very happy and we wait to play the next game with the same passion. 

"For this team, every competition is very important. We go for it no matter if we play in the Carabao Cup or FA Cup. We play for the same goal, hungry to win the trophy. 

"Every player who played [against Norwich] gave everything and we went for it."
