Liverpool will look to take their impressive form into the Carabao Cup tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to face Preston North End in the last 16 at Deepdale.

Since returning from the international break, Liverpool have thrashed Watford 5-0, won at Atletico Madrid in the Champions Legaue, and secured their biggest-ever win at Old Trafford as they dismantled rivals Manchester United, again by 5-0, on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah netted a hat-trick and has now scored in 10 consecutive appearances for the Reds, but he isn’t expected to feature this evening with Klopp likely to rotate his side as he did in the previous round against Norwich.

Preston have made a slow start to the Championship and sit 19th after winning just two of their last 10 fixtures under manager Frankie McAvoy.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the last-16 tie.
