Preston 0-2 Liverpool
League Cup Fourth Round, Deepdale
October 27, 2021
Goals: Minamino 62′, Origi 84′
The Reds bounced into Deepdale still fresh off the back of the stunning 5-0 win at Man United, looking to reach the quarter-finals.
Jurgen Klopp predictably made wholesale changes, but it made little difference to the end result.
Takumi Minamino fired Liverpool in front with a clever finish from close range just after the hour mark, however, easing fears of an upset.
The Reds’ win was sealed by an outrageous strike by Origi, who flicked a finish into the net in acrobatic fashion.
A solid but unspectacular victory was assessed…
That’s 23 games unbeaten for Liverpool in all competitions now.

The big problem with every football match that will take place between now and the end of time is that not a single one of them will be better than Sunday, but at least we won and no one got injured.

Divock. You big, beautiful, mad bastard.

Divock Origi only cares about scoring the spectacular or the absurd. Has absolutely no time for normal goals.

Just saw Man City lose in the league cup and Divock Origi score a scorpion kick in the same night. Never stop dreaming, kids

Tyler Morton also caught the eye…
Enjoyed watching Tyler Morton again tonight. Composed and clever use of the ball. Conor Bradley brave & direct when he came on too. Good to see #PNELIV

Great pass from Tyler Morton to start the move for the Minamino ?? #PNELIV

he's a damn midfield general
Tyler Morton has to make it here

Tyler Morton has seriously impressed in the cup, wouldn't mind giving him some league minutes off the bench in games we lead comfortably

Motm for me Morton, assured, takes up smart positions and anticipates danger, got more progressive with his passing as game went on including the key pass to Neco in opening goal. Neco himself also had a good game and Adrian made some critical saves and was solid throughout.
