Klopp has made an omission about what his team will look like in an interview with Liverpool FC: "Simon (Mignolet) will start, all the rest you have to wait until tomorrow - but it will be a good team, believe me".

This is the eighth League Cup meeting between Liverpool and Chelsea and the first at the third round stage since November 2000, when the Reds won 2-1 at Anfield with goals from Danny Murphy and Robbie Fowler.

Loris Karius appeared to cement his place as the club's number one last season, before being moved over the summer after a turbulent end to the season.

Antonio Rudiger, Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are reportedly unlikely to feature for Sarri's side against Liverpool on Thursday.

Defender Virgil van Dyke looks set to miss the cup tie due to a rib injury but Dejan Lovren is in contention to start.

Of the challenge Chelsea face, he added: "Against a team who have worked with the same coach for four or five years, I don't remember exactly (Klopp became Liverpool manager in October 2015), they are a step forward from us in this moment".

It's not Premier League, we know.

And because of their better squad this time, they can focus on the domestic cups as well, something that has been their Achilles Heel in the last few seasons. We have a lot of players who are all top quality, and I think that helps the team to perform as they are doing.

Pundit Andy Gray has told BeIN Sports that he wants to see his former clubs Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers really push to win the Carabao Cup this season.
