In-form Liverpool will be looking to back up their memorable mauling of Manchester United by progressing into the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup when they face Preston North End at Deepdale on Wednesday.
The Championship side have never made it past the last 16 of this competition before, and doing so against a Liverpool side unbeaten in their last 22 outings would make for a major shock.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the team news for both sides ahead of the contest.
PRESTON NORTH END
Sports Mole's predicted XI: Rudd; Storey, Bauer, Hughes; Van den Berg, Whiteman, Ledson, Earl; Johnson; Jakobsen, Sinclair
Sports Mole's predicted XI: Adrian; N Williams, Gomez, Matip, Tsimikas; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Jones; Minamino, Origi, Mane
