Liverpool have actually verified that loanee protector Sepp van den Berg is qualified to face his moms and dad club. The young Dutchman has actually been playing as a best wing-back this season, instead of as the centre-back most Liverpool fans will remember him as.
That’s an increase for Preston employer Frankie McAvoy, who has a considerable amount of concerns to compete with. Alan Browne is suspended, while Connor Wickham, Izzy Brown, Ched Evans and Josh Murphy are all out hurt.
James Milner and Naby Keita both got injuries versus United and will miss this one, as will long-lasting absentees Thiago and Harvey Elliott.
Fabinho (knock) and Caoimhin Kelleher (disease) are both most likely to lose out, with young Kaide Gordon is still working his method back from injury and is not anticipated to get another run-out here.

Liverpool: Adrian; N. Williams, Gomez, Matip, Tsimikas; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Jones; Minamino, Origi, Mane.
These 2 sides have not satisfied given that the 3rd round of the 2008/09 FA Cup, when Rafa Benitez’s Liverpool went out 2-0 winners thanks to objectives from Albert Riera and Fernando Torres.
Before that, you need to go all the method back to 1962 for the last video game in between these 2. Preston won that 1-0 as Peter Thompson’s objective knocked Bill Shankly’s side out of the FA Cup.
Liverpool have actually scored a boat load of objectives in their last couple of video games, and even with heavy players like Mohamed Salah most likely to sit this one out, the Reds are still certainly going to acquire the objectives once again here.
To make this even worse for Preston, they have not been scoring a great deal of objectives themselves, so their possibilities of winning this one appear extremely slim.
Will this second-string Liverpool side have enough about them to score 6 or 7? Probably not, however they must still blow Preston out of the water.
Prediction: Preston 0-3 Liverpool
