Liverpool vs Derby County | By defeating Derby, Liverpool hopes to begin their Carabao Cup defense. Jurgen Klopp and his team would be extremely driven to successfully defend the Carabao Cup. Despite the perception that he likes to concentrate on the Premier League and Champions League. Derby County presents its first obstacle in this defense.

The Reds’ season hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts. They now reside in eighth place in the table. 15 points behind first-placed Arsenal, after losing 4 of their first 13 league games. Liverpool’s goal right now is to return to the top 4. But they’ll also want to give it their best in playoff games.

On paper, Derby County shouldn’t offer much of a danger to a Liverpool team that rotates a lot. The League One team doesn’t stand a great chance, both statistically and historically. But the appeal of cup tournaments is that anything may occur. By defeating the imposing Liverpool so early on, the Rams, who are hoping to make the move to the Premier League this season, would send a statement.

The Reds make 11 changes for the match against The Rams, with the 20-year-old striker starting in attack.

Additionally joining the lineup are Stefan Bajcetic, Bobby Clark, and Melkamu Frauendorf, while Calvin Ramsay and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are named to the starting XI and will make their season debuts.

Lineups for Liverpool vs Derby County are known.

Kelleher, Ramsay, Gomez, Phillips, Tsimikas, Clark, Bajcetic, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Carvalho, Frauendorf, and Stewart make up the Liverpool XI (4-1-2-1-2).
Wildsmith, Smith, Forsyth, Cashin, Roberts, Hourihane, Bird, Sibley, Osula, and Collins make up the Derby County XI (4-2-2-2).
