League Cup Third Round, Sincil Bank
September 24, 2020
Goals: Edun 60′, Montsma 66′; Shaqiri 9′, Minamino 18′ 46′, Jones 32′ 36′, Grujic 65′, Origi 89′
The Reds took on their League One opponents at Sincil Bank, hoping to get beyond the third round and closer to a first win in the competition under Jurgen Klopp.
Unsurprisingly, Klopp made numerous changes to the side that won at Chelsea last weekend, with youngster Rhys Williams handed his first-team debut.
It was the Swiss who opened the scoring in stunning fashion, curling home a free-kick to send the Premier League champions on the road to victory.
Minamino doubled the lead with an equally smart finish and Jones scored a quickfire brace, giving Liverpool a 4-0 half-time lead.
The second half was closer, although Minamino made it 5-1 straight from kickoff, as the Japanese continues to improve in a Reds shirt.
Divock Origi was a peripheral figure on the night, but he made sure he cashed in as well, finishing ruthlessly in the last minute to complete the scoring.
Both sides have won their opening two league games, so something has to give at Anfield, in what should be an entertaining contest.
