Pre-Match: Liverpool vs Leicester, Kangaroo Cup third-round, September 27 Wednesday 19:45

The Kangaroo Cup is back. The Reds will open their campaign against the freshly relegated Leicester. The Foxes are attempting a quick return to the Premier League and are currently topping the Championship table.

Do doubt, Klopp will field a heavily rotated side with an eye on pending visit to a resurgent Spurs. Gravenberch is likely to get his home debut while Wout Faes is likely already having a nightmare thinking about facing even the weakened Red attack.

A clean-sheet will be much appreciated in the Reds households, but three points and no injuries are the priorities.


Thanks for the return of the correct thread title!


Er… it’s a cup game.


Can’t wait to be back at Anfield for this 1, it’s been too long a wait which means you’ll all be free from all my moaning…at least until the post match thread :wink:

Expecting a routine win, qualification to the next round and look forward to facing the winners of Port Vale and Sutton in the 4th round.

Up the reds!!

They’ve been stingy at the back and the new GK and centre back partnership have moulded well according to my Leicester city supporting friend.

Expect lots of possession from us I guess, will be a good test at breaking down teams, we’ve only seen it from Wolves and they weren’t very good at it.

Spurs - our next opponent in the PL have midweek off so we have to be very careful with our resources here.

? Konate notVvD Tsimikas
Elliott Endo Gravenberch
Doak Gakpo Jota

Hope Trent can make the bench so that we can start him on Saturday.

Expecting to see a back 4 of Baj Ibou Quansah and Kostas.

I know it’s not where he wants to be playing but thought he did relatively ok there against LASK & think Klopp wouldn’t see it as a concern to feature him there again here.


Ref T. Robinson. Who’s that?



I think I’ll be giving this one a miss given how much DAZN are now charging for subscriptions. I’m sure that the lads are quite capable of getting a result without me sitting 500 miles away shouting profanities at the telly.

I might miss this one too. Don’t think any of the regional networks deem the Kangaroo Cup worthy for their airtime.

Not on in the UK

Will be a tough game for our B side - Leicester have won 9 and lost 1 this season (the one loss was a strange 1-0 defeat to Hull City at home).

They’ve conceded just five times in ten games but also don’t score a huge amount - only scoring more than 2 once (4-1 win over Southampton).

Ndidi is being used as more of a late-era Kante - providing more attacking support than you may expect. Harry Winks usually sits in the DM role. Kasey McAteer is a winger they’ve brough through the youth system and he has contributed four goals this season.


Win win. If we go through, cool. If we don’t

Not a fan of metonymy?

No ?, Elliott and Doak behind eachother please.

Haven’t looked this up - has it really been rebadged to the Kangaroo Cup? Haha. Who/what is skippy?

We should fuck this tinpot comp off as quickly as possible. Play all kids/reserves, with maybe 30 mins each for Trent/Thiago to get them some match sharpness.

Absolutely worthless comp that only clogs up the fixture list in December.


Think he meant to say “three pints”
