9 changes made: Nunez benched & Quansah starts v Leicester City – Predicted Liverpool XI

Posted by

Liverpool are set to take on relegated outfit Leicester City in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Foxes have begun their Championship campaign with a near-perfect record, winning all but one of their opening eight second division fixtures to leave them at the top of the table heading into October.

The Merseysiders, on their end, have equally enjoyed an impressive start to the 2023/24 season, with a midfield rebuild already paying dividends.

Ahead of Caoimhin Kelleher in between the sticks, we at Empire of the Kop are backing Jurgen Klopp to go with a centre-back partnership of Joel Matip and Jarell Quansah.

In the middle of the park, Wataru Endo should be given another chance to showcase his talents following his Liverpool move along with fellow summer signing Ryan Gravenberch and Harvey Elliott.

Up top, what we’d now imagine to be our favoured starting trio in Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah will likely be rested in favour of Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo and Ben Doak.

    1. Obviously you don’t go to the games. Curtis Jones is quality that said he won’t start all games. Integral to the reds having a good season

  1. team selection changes show how much stronger we now look with more depth and is clear that slowly over a few transfer windows we have managed to get a more balanced squad with more strength in depth. well done to the recruitment team who didn’t blink when 2 overrated overpriced holding midfield players went to London where they can spend up to 8 years in the treatment room without feeling any pressure to justify their huge fees then move to saudi.
