Preston vs Liverpool Predictions & Analysis
A real buzz is expected in and around Deepdale on Wednesday evening when red-hot Liverpool come to visit Preston in the battle for a place in the League Cup quarterfinal.
Liverpool look unstoppable at the moment and they will enter this match as enormous favorites.
The Reds have just bagged five unanswered goals in the humiliation of their bitter inter-city rivals Manchester United on Sunday afternoon at the Old Trafford.
Mohamed Salah came up with another spectacular performance, completing a hat-trick and delivering an assist for Naby Keita’s opening goal of the game.
Jurgen Klopp will certainly leave his main star on the bench here, but his African fellow forward Sadio Mane might get the nod in the starting XI having only played the final 20 minutes of the weekend’s affair at the Old Trafford.
Mane & company should have plenty of room to create up front here against the lower-division rivals.
Preston hold the 19th place in the Championship standings with just 3 wins in the inaugural 14 rounds of the competition.
They will come into this after a dismal display in a 2-0 loss away at Blackpool on Saturday.
