High-flying Liverpool will face off against Championship leaders Leicester City in a thrilling Carabao Cup tie.

Liverpool have started the season in excellent form after a summer of transition in midfield and they have won five and drawn one of their opening six league matches.

The Foxes also enter the game full of confidence and they have won seven of their opening eight league games with just one defeat as they aim to bounce back to the Premier League after last year’s shock relegation.

The Reds are hoping to win the Carabao Cup for the first time in two seasons after their triumph in 2022 and they remain the most successful team in the history of the competition with nine titles.

Leicester enjoyed FA Cup success back in 2021 but their last Carabao Cup triumph came in 2000 under the guidance of Martin O’Neil.

The game is likely to attract intrigue from fans around the world as Liverpool aim to put on an impressive display in front of the Anfield faithful.
