What is the news of the team?

James Milner is unavailable for the draw after sustaining a hamstring injury in the win over Man Utd at the weekend.

Naby Keita is also injured, as are Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara. Adrian could play in goal as Caoimhin Kelleher is also out.

Kaide Gordon is hoping to play but has just gotten back into shape for the Reds, so that’s in doubt.

Preston will do without Josh Murphy, Ched Evans and Izzy Brown.


    Expect some changes from Klopp tonight with such a busy schedule.

    It will all become clear very soon when the team’s news is known.


    Hello everyone. Welcome to our live coverage of the Carabao Cup and Liverpool’s trip to Preston tonight.

    A place in the quarter-finals is up for grabs tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s men take a little turn on the M6.

    In their own way, a championship team in Preston will be looking to bring them back to earth after Sunday’s incredible result at Old Trafford.

    We expect a reshuffle from the Liverpool squad tonight and that could give Preston a flair for a giant murder.

    Kick-off is at 7:45 p.m. local time and I will update you on the team very soon.

    Sit back and relax, it should be a good night’s sleep.
