It’s a host of changes for Liverpool as they change their focus to the League Cup, and there is a debut 18-year-old Harvey Blair in the XI. He’s one of two teenagers in the starting lineup tonight.
The Reds are hitting all the right notes of late and head to Deepdale off the back of an impressive and historic victory at Old Trafford to extend the unbeaten run to 22 games.
But there’s a touch of youth in the mix too as the manager keeps things fresh but competitive against the Championship strugglers.
