Preston vs Liverpool team news

Naby Keita was taken off on a stretcher in the win over Manchester United and is almost certain to miss this trip, with there also question marks over James Milner (hamstring) and Caoimhin Kelleher (illness).

Adrian could therefore start along with Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who all played in the third-round win at Norwich. Harvey Elliott (ankle) and Thiago Alcantara (calf) remain sidelined.

Preston are without Josh Murphy after the loanee winger picked up an ankle injury, with Ched Evans out, Matthew Olosunde racing back to a return and Ali McCann fit again.

The Championship side previously sought permission to play defender Sepp van de Berg, on loan from Liverpool, but could be without the Dutchman.

Preston vs Liverpool prediction

There is simply no stopping Liverpool right now. The reserves’ demolition of Norwich in the last round showed that Jurgen Klopp has a rich vein of talent to exploit and confidence throughout the club is huge after Sunday’s 5-0 win over Manchester United.

Head to head (h2h) history and results

The two teams have only met once since 1962, a 2-0 win for the Reds in the 2008/09 FA Cup.
