League One club Lincoln City host Premier League champions Liverpool in the English League Cup third round on Thursday. The Reds will be fielding a second string side but led by forward Takumi Minamino, they should still be too strong.

Michael Appleton’s side won 2-1 at Crewe in the League Cup followed by a penalty shootout victory against Scunthorpe United in the EFL Trophy.

The Imps have won both matches in League One this season, 2-0 at home against Oxford United and 2-1 at Milton Keynes Dons with Jorge Grant and Tom Hopper on target.

In between was a 5-0 win at Bradford City in the League Cup. An own goal and Anthony Scully strike saw them 2-0 up after 6 minutes, Lewis Montsma, James Jones and Callum Morton finishing the job.

Liverpool Form

Liverpool started the new campaign with a defeat to Arsenal in the FA Community Shield. Takumi Minamino came off the bench to equalise before they lost in a penalty shootout.

Jürgen Klopp’s side began their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 win against Leeds. It was a great match with Mohamed Salah hitting a hat-trick and Virgil van Dijk on target.
