As suspected, there are plenty of new faces among the Starting XI and on the bench for the Derby County fixture. Assistant Manager Pepijn Lijnders has called upon the services of several U-21 team members including Layton Stewart and Melkamu Frauendorf. There is also a good mix of familiar faces including Calvin Ramsay, Joe Gomez, and Kostas Tsimikas.

LFC Globe Verdict
This is the perfect lineup to send to the pitch when facing a team in League One. It has a perfect mixture of rising stars making their Senior team debut to go with some of the regulars looking for extended minutes instead of coming on late. I also like the fact that Lijnders has kept a few first-team names on the bench in case the match goes to penalties.
Where To Watch
Ironically, the match will not be broadcast or streamed anywhere in the U.K. American audiences can watch on ESPN+, however.
