In-between league fixtures, round three of the Carabao Cup takes place this week with a number of top Premier League teams now involved in the competition. Lincoln City of League One host current Premier League title holders Liverpool at Sincil Bank in today's game. Don't miss a moment with our Lincoln vs Liverpool live stream guide.
Liverpool enter the Carabao Cup at this third-round stage owing to their participation in European football. They go into tonight's game as obvious favorites having won the Premier League last season and with the wealth of talent at the club.
The Reds have won the EFL Cup a record eight times, though the last time they lifted the trophy was in 2012. Their last appearance in the final was in 2016 where they were beaten by Manchester City. Last year, Jurgen Klopp's side exited the competition at the quarter-final stage after a 5-0 loss to Aston Villa. A vastly inexperienced side was fielded that day while the first-team squad participated in the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.
Since returning to Premier League football, Liverpool have recorded two victories in their opening two games with wins at home to newly-promoted Leeds United and away at Chelsea.
Lincoln failed to progress past round two last year though have had recent success in cup competitions, reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals in 2016/17. The Imps defeated fellow League One side Crewe Alexandra 2-1 and League Two team Bradford 5-0 in order to earn a place in the third round.
Michael Appleton's side also holds a 100% record in other competitions so far in this campaign with two league victories and a penalty win in the EFL Trophy. Despite Liverpool having used the Carabao Cup to give younger players competitive game experience in recent years, they will pose a much different threat to any team Lincoln have faced so far this season.
