Times journalist Tony Barret claims that Cameron Brannagan, Connor Randall and Joao Teixeira will start for Liverpool versus Bournemouth in this evening’s League Cup tie.
A big night beckons for a trio of Liverpool youngsters with Cameron Brannagan, Connor Randall & Joao Texeira starting against Bournemouth.

Brannagan featured earlier this term versus Bordeaux, but will be making his Anfield bow – along with the other two who have similarly never played in front of the Kop.
The former is an attacking midfielder, as is 22-year-old Teixeira, while Randall will take Nathaniel Clyne’s place at right-back.
It looks then like Jurgen Klopp is naming a significantly weakened side for the clash, with a trip to Chelsea at the weekend a clear priority.
If this proves to be the case, we’re switching up the lineup we predicted late last night – instead assuming that we could take the field something like this: Mignolet, Randall, Sakho, Skrtel, Moreno; Lucas, Allen; Ibe, Brannagan, Teixeira; Origi
An inexperienced frontline, but surely enough to get the job done at home to the Cherries?
