Match Preview

Liverpool will visit Preston's headquarters in Deepdale for the 2021/22 EFL Cup round of 16 matches, Thursday (28/10/2021) at 12:15 midnight Indian time.
Liverpool qualified for the round of 32 after eliminating Norwich City in the previous round with a 3-0 score through a  Takumi Minamino brace and a Divock Origi goal.
Meanwhile, Preston qualified for the round of 32 after beating Cheltenham Town in the previous round with a score of 4-1 through goals from Andrew Hughes, Joe Rafferty, Sean Maguire, and Emil Riis.
Liverpool is in high confidence ahead of this match. In the league last week, the Reds successfully defeated Manchester United at Old Trafford with a score of 5-0 through  Mohamed Salah's hat-trick and one goal each from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota.
Thanks to that victory, Jurgen Klopp's troops were recorded untouched by defeat even in their last 15 matches in all competitions (W11 D4 L0).
