After a very important 2-1 road win over Tottenham on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s men have a much easier task this Wednesday. However, lately, they often have serious problems against weaker teams. Therefore, the Reds will enter this match with maximum respect for the opponent.
Thanks to Mohamed Salah, who scored both goals in London on Sunday, Liverpool ended their Premier League losing streak. Before that game, they were defeated by Nottingham Forest 0-1 and Leeds 1-2, which angered many fans. After 13 rounds, they are in eighth place with 19 points.
This match against Derby will be an ideal opportunity for Klopp to give players who have not played much in the previous period a chance. Here we mean Tsimikas, Phillips, Kelleher, and Carvalho. Matches like this are ideal for players with minor roles to draw attention to their coaches.
Derby County Team News
Derby has recorded solid results in League 1 this season. After 16 rounds, they are in seventh place in the table with 25 points. They have not been defeated in the last three league matches, and in that period they have registered one win and two draws.
Derby eliminated Mansfield 2-1 and West Brom 1-0 in the previous two rounds of the English League Cup, and now they face a much more difficult task. It will be an opportunity for a former member of the football elite to face one of the best teams today.
Curtis Davies and James Chester are injured and will not travel to Anfield with the rest of the squad. Eiran Cashin is suspended for his straight red card in last weekend’s FA Cup tie, while Jason Knight is likely to return to the line-up.
These two teams last met in 2016 in the same competition, with Liverpool winning 3-0.
