In a strange quirk of history, they actually played each other 5 times between November 1961 and March 1962. 5 games in 108 days and they wouldn't meet again for 47 years.

Liverpool are undefeated in their last 15 matches across all competitions heading into this clash with Preston North End.

Preston vs Liverpool Carabao Cup prediction

Liverpool's form this season.

While Preston's form in the Championship has been modest of recent times, they have scored 11 goals in 3 Carabao Cup games coming into this clash.

Liverpool share the record with Manchester City having won this competition 8 times each and they'd love to take that record outright in a few weeks' time.

Jurgen Klopp's men haven't been beaten in any competition this year and they have scored at least 5 times in 3 of their last 4 away games.

Thiago Alcântara and Harvey Elliott will miss for Liverpool through injury, as will Naby Keïta and James Milner, who both came off hurt in the Premier League thrashing of Manchester United at the weekend.

Despite this they look far stronger than Preston on paper and will keep their imposing record going here with a good victory.
