Liverpool have endured a great start to their Premier League season. They remain at the top of the EPL table after six matchdays, having won all six of their games. That being said, German manager Jurgen Klopp is sure to give some much-needed rest to a majority of first-team players in Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup tie against MK Dons. Here is the match preview and predicted line-up of both teams for the match at MK Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been a force to reckon with in the 2019-20 season so far. Barring the one loss to Napoli in their opening UEFA Champions League tie, Liverpool have been in fine form. The German coach will most likely give some much required rest to the front three attacking trio of Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in their Carabao Cup tie. Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Adrian will also sit out Thursday night’s match at MK Stadium.
Klopp will predictably hand senior debuts to youngsters Harvey Elliott and Rhian Brewster. Liverpool-born attacker Curtis Jones and Dutch teenager Ki-Jana Hoever may also feature for the Merseyside team in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. This will be an excellent opportunity for periphery players such as Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to gain some game time for Liverpool. Neutral fans should expect another attacking threat from Liverpool as they take on Paul Tisdale’s MK Dons side.
MK Dons predicted XI:
Lee Nicholls(GK), Dean Lewington, Joe Walsh, Regan Poole, Russell Martin, Conor McGrandles, Jordan Houghton, David Kasumu, Callum Brittain, Hiram Boateng, Sam Nombe.
Liverpool predicted XI:
Caoimhin Kelleher(GK), Ki-Jana Hoever, Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Rhian Brewster, Harvey Elliott.
