Preston vs Liverpool team news
Naby Keita was taken on a stretcher in the win over Manchester United and is almost certain to miss the trip, also with question marks over James Milner (hamstrings) and Caoimhin Kelleher (illness).
Adrian could therefore start with Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who all played in the third round victory at Norwich. Harvey Elliott (ankle) and Thiago Alcantara (calf) remain on the sidelines.
Preston is without Josh Murphy after the loan winger injured his ankle, with Ched Evans out, Matthew Olosunde returning and Ali McCann getting back into shape.
The league side had previously requested permission to play defender Sepp van den Berg, on loan from Liverpool, but could do without the Dutchman.
Preston vs Liverpool prediction
There is simply no stopping for Liverpool at the moment. The demolition of Norwich by reserves in the last round showed that Jurgen Klopp has a rich vein of talent to tap into and that confidence in the whole club is huge following Sunday’s 5-0 win over Manchester United.
History and results of face to face (h2h)
