With Liverpool playing Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on the Sunday, its likely the tie will be played on Wednesday, 27th October but is still to be confirmed.

North End ensured their smooth passage to the next round with a convincing 4-1 victory at home to Cheltenham Town. The game featured on loan Reds defender Sepp van den Berg who came on as a substitute in the 31st minute.

The Dutch defender who was recently called up to the under 21 squad scored his first professional goal in the 2nd round win away to Morecambe.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will grant permission for van den Berg to play in this fixture.

Jurgen Klopp made nine changes on Tuesday and gave debuts to academy players Conor Bradley, Kaide Gordon and Tyler Moreton.

With games coming thick and fast before and after the International break, its likely the German will take the opportunity to rotate his squad again at Deepdale.

Reds fans would welcome a good run in the domestic cups where progress has been limited over recent years. With a number of big teams left in the competition it will take some luck along the way with injuries to give Klopp's team the best possible chance of success.


The draw for the Carabao Cup Round Four is as follows:

Chelsea v Southampton

Arsenal v Leeds United

Stoke City v Brentford

West Ham United v Manchester City

Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion

Burnley v Tottenham Hotspur

Queens Park Rangers v Sunderland

Preston North End v Liverpool
