Head Coach of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp during the UEFA Champions League match between Napoli and Liverpool at Stadio San Paolo, Naples, Italy on 17 September 2019.

Liverpool take on MK Dons in the Carabao Cup this evening...

Liverpool starting XI: Kelleher; Hoever, Lovren, Gomez, Milner; Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Lallana; Jones, Elliott, Brewster.

Liverpool substitute: Lonergan, Lewis, Kane, Chirivella, Van den Berg, Longstaff, Clarkson.

Liverpool travel down to take on Milton Keynes Dons this evening, and will be hoping to avoid a shock after seeing Tottenham crash out at Colchester United last night.

Jurgen Klopp goes with Irish youngster Caoimhin Kelleher in goal tonight, with Ki-Jana Hoever joining Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez and James Milner in the back four.

Naby Keita returns to play in midfield after an injury lay-off, and is joined by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana in the midfield trio.

16-year-old talent Harvey Elliott makes his debut having arrived from Fulham, and joins Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster in Klopp's attacking three tonight.

Liverpool's biggest names have been given the night off, but there are spots on the bench for summer signings Andy Lonergan and Sepp van den Berg this evening.

Adam Lewis, Herbie Kane, Pedro Chirivella, Luis Longstaff and Leighton Clarkson are all on the bench too, with Klopp putting his faith in youth mixed in with a couple of experienced heads.
