Following on from their 5-0 bashing of Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend, Liverpool are back in Carabao Cup action this evening with a trip to Deepdale to face Championship club Preston North End as they look to progress further in the competition.

Ahead of the match against Preston, Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders revealed that Fabinho, Naby Keita, James Milner, Harvey Elliott, Thiago Alcantara are all likely to miss the match in midweek through individual injuries.

Lijnders also explained that goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher will miss the game as well.

Taking all of this into account, here’s how we feel Liverpool will line up this evening…

In goal, with Kelleher out, it seems likely now that we will see Adrian, who hasn’t played a game for the Reds so far this season in any competition, start with Alisson likely to be given a rest.

For the defence, Neco Williams could play in the right-back position with Joe Gomez and Nat Phillips occupying the centre-back positions and Kostas Tsimikas returning at left-back.

Jurgen Klopp’s first-choice backline all receive a break from action.

Elsewhere in midfield, with the number of injuries they currently have, we think Liverpool will have to put Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones in the team against Preston with Tyler Morton given a chance to shine after he came on as a substitute in their previous Carabao Cup match against Norwich City.

Up top, Klopp could stick with the same front three that started against Norwich in their 3-0 win back in September with Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi playing alongside 17-year-old winger Kaide Gordon, who signed his first professional contract with the Merseyside club earlier this month.

This would allow the likes of Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to have a rest ahead of their next Premier League outing this weekend against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Moving forward, this match against Preston, this not only gives Liverpool the chance to get through to the next stage of the competition but also gives some of their fringe squad players the chance to show their worth, rest some of their senior players and give the injured players time to recover.
