(Preston North End – Liverpool 0-2) Takumi Minamino (26) always shines in the League Cup. Together with one Zlatan Esq Scoring from Divock Origi secured Japan’s lead for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
It was a golden Premier League match against the Championship bottom battle, but it was still a bit unbelievable that Preston didn’t go into the second half by a wide margin.
Initially Brad Potts had the chance alone against Adrian, but the goalkeeper came out victorious. The next time, the guard needed help keeping the cage clean.
The first shot saved the Spaniard himself, but the return, somewhat, involuntarily, was stopped on the goal line by the head of Nico Williams. Little ear in the top cover saw an insane triple opportunity being rounded off with a poor finish on goal from close range.
Jurgen Klopp sent a B-shaped side off the field against Preston. Mohamed Salah was not even on the bench, and almost all the big stars have rested from the start.
The Rice Verdict: A Violent Breach of Trust
The Reds struggled terribly to create chances before the break, and Klopp may not have been particularly happy with how some took advantage of the opportunity in the starting line-up.
On the other hand, Takumi Minamino put his love in the League Cup and scored his third goal of the tournament this season after the break. Five of the Japanese’s seven goals in Liverpool’s cup career came. The Japanese headed well for a job from Nico Williams, which gave Liverpool some long-awaited peace.
Before the end, Divock Origi broke through the match with a cheeky heel kick, which even Zlatan Ibrahimovic was proud to have on his resume. The Belgian striker extended his foot high behind him and threw the ball into the net.
Preston fails to respond, and the Reds are ready for the quarter-finals. There they are joined by other big clubs.
