Tony Barrett claims these three Liverpool youngsters will start tonight

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.

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?
