Liverpool face MK Dons in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night. Here are three players we hope to see.
Brewster earned his promotion to the first-team squad but is yet to make his senior debut. He’s barely made the bench, in fact, as Divock Origi took the substitute role up top.
But this is the best opportunity so far. Brewster will surely play – hopefully from the start – and we’ll see what he can do.
Jurgen Klopp labelled him a ‘new’ player for the season after he missed the last campaign through injury. This should be our first look at his ability to be just that.
Unlike Brewster, Elliott does have first-team experience. He first got it in this competition, too, making his senior debut for Fulham a year ago. Two Premier League appearances followed at the end of the season – Elliott does know the level.
He also impressed in a friendly against Napoli once he joined Liverpool and he may be the player most fans want to see against MK Dons.
Elliott is a huge talent that Liverpool fought to get. Hopefully, that gets him his first senior game for the Reds so we can truly see what the fuss is about.
Not one that everyone would agree with but this should be a different Lallana this season. He’s set to play as a holding midfielder – a very different role – and one that’s an interesting prospect.
“I do watch the six more so now than what the eight does because I know that reasonably well,” he said recently. “What are their movements like? I’ve found myself focusing on Fabinho a little bit in our first games and he has played it outstandingly well.”
This could be his chance to try it out and for Klopp to see if he can play it. He’d have the benefit of playing a ‘lesser’ team and under less pressure. If he’s an option there, let’s find out.
