Derby County vs Liverpool

EFL cup. Why do they love to change the name of this cup I have no idea. The more they change, the less it is prioritised.

Anyway, back to LFC business, this game would give the perfect opportunity for Kloop to give some players a point to prove, while young players would love to get a chance to play as well.

Karius might be given a competitive debut to ease him into first team action, with the likes or Randall, Trend Alexander-Arnold (let’s just call him ATA) getting some minutes on the full back positions. Kloop’s got to feel like he likes ATA, having given him couple of chances at pre-season.

Sakho, if deemed by Kloop, may start as well, with Joe Gomez not yet match fit. Ilori doesn’t seem fancied by Kloop, I expect him to be heading out pretty soon.

Expect Klavan, Moreno and Lucas to start as well, and so does Stewart, who I believe can be pushing for a spot in the starting lineup. Grujic should (finally) get his chance too, and maybe Ojarie too.

Brannagan have to start (I’m just biased), and I hope Ings and Ojo can get into the first eleven to prove their worth as well.

Let’s get the win.

What I hope Kloop will start with:


ATA Lucas Klavan/Sakho Moreno

Grujic Stewart Brannagan

Ojarie Ings Ojo
