Taki Minamino fired Liverpool ahead in the second-half of their Carabao Cup encounter with loanee Sepp van den Berg’s Preston North End.
Following a poor opening 45 minutes at Deepdale Stadium, the Reds showed some improvement after returning to the pitch, with the Japanese international connecting well with a cross from fullback, Neco Williams.
It’s the backup attacker’s third goal in two domestic cup fixtures this term as the 26-year-old continues to make the most of his appearances in the competition.
