Liverpool fans chose to mock Norwich City with a brutal chant during the two sides’ cup clash on Tuesday night at Carrow Road.
It was yet another game with plenty of goals, as this fixtures always produces, with Takumi Minamino hitting a brace, Caoimhin Kelleher being denied by Christos Tzolis from the penalty spot and Divock Origi scoring the other goal with a fine header.
Whilst at the game, Kopites supporters took to make fun at the opposition, taunting them at 2-0 up by singing Luis Suarez’s name, in homage to the many games he made easy work of the Canaries in the past.

Suarez endured four seasons at the Premier League giants from 2010 to 2014, scoring 72 goals in 116 appearances.
The 34-year-old showed prolific goalscoring prowess which quickly made him a fan favourite, leading to supporters creating his own chant.
To the tune of Depeche Mode’s ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’, it goes: “His name is Suarez, and he wears the famous red, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough.
“When he scores a volley or when he scores a head, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough.
“He scores a goal, and The Kop go wild, and I just can’t seem to get enough, Suarez! Dadadadadadadada Luis Suarez!”
Want an interesting stat? He scored a stunning 12 goals in just six appearances against Norwich, including three hat-tricks, two of them before the Carrow Road crowd.
Suarez has only scored more career goals against La Liga outfit Valencia, netting 13 in 15 games against the Spanish outfit.
After a successful spell at Anfield, Suarez left the Reds in a £75million deal in 2014, joining Barcelona.
He went on to score 192 in 281 goals for the Nou Camp side, thriving in front threes, including Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Neymar.
Suarez is currently at Atletico Madrid after a switch last summer, scoring 22 goals in 44 games so far and helping them to the La Liga title last season.
While Suarez wasn’t facing his favourite foes Norwich, he was in action on the same night as Atletico travelled to Getafe.
The striker also scored a late-brace, including a stoppage-time winner, as Diego Simeone’s side came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory, fans were quick to joke the veteran must have been able to sense that Liverpool were taking on Norwich, with him not even needing to face them himself to get on the scoresheet.

Back to the Norwich Liverpool fans now and here is what the managers had to say post-match.
Norwich boss Daniel Farke: “We wanted to win the Carabao Cup and now we can’t. I am disappointed with this.
“I know how much I measure this cup and I would like to win but we also had to be smart in our team selection and rest some players.”
On Tzolis’ penalty to Sky Sports: “He was not on the paper. So it means it was a big mistake. Listen, young guy, it was unbelievably emotional and excited, and this is what happens to young players, they take the wrong decisions.
“I love this guy and he will be an important player for us in the future, and in general he had a really good performance, but believe me, in the dressing room, it is clear that this never happens again. He has done the mistake in his career once, and believe me, we will make sure it never happens again. He has apologised.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on Minamino: “Footballers want to play, that’s clear. He was with his national team, got injured and was then not fit so it was not like he didn’t play for 60 weeks.
“It was the time after the injury but Taki is in a really good moment, training well and deserved the two goals.
