Liverpool enter the Third Round of the EFL Cup fresh from beating Tottenham in the Premier League, which has just reinvigorated the spark following a concerning October dip. The defending champions face a potentially awkward home tie against sleeping giants Derby County, who are now toiling away in the third tier following their financial struggles and near-dissolution.
Klopp claimed his first domestic cup in England last season as Liverpool edged Chelsea 11-10 on penalties, ending Manchester City’s reign of terror in the competition. With the Reds already 15 points adrift of the Premier League summit and Real Madrid awaiting them in the Champions League last-16, Klopp may view this competition as his most likely route to silverware, placing a huge emphasis on Wednesday night.
Derby have endured a difficult few years, with financial uncertainties threatening their entire existence. That existential crisis was governed competently and abated by Wayne Rooney’s brief but succesful stint at Pride Park. But, despite his heroics, the Rams were ultimately relegated to League One last season and could do with a morale-boosting result to give a fanbase driven to the precipice something the cheer about.

Liverpool v Derby match stats
This fixture has been one-way traffic since the turn of the century. Liverpool have won seven of their last eight meetings, and drew the other, winning 75% of those contests with a clean sheet. Klopp will certainly back his side to continue that trend given the complexion of both clubs. With Derby now contesting in League One, he may view Wednesday’s match-up as a chance to keep some star names on ice, opening the door for the likes of Curtis Jones and Fabio Carvalho to start from the off.
