General | Latest Info

Liverpool youngster Curtis Jones was called an exceptional talent by boss Jurgen Klopp after his double in the 7-2 Carabao Cup win over Lincoln. Marko Grujic struck between Lincoln goals for Tayo Edun and Lewis Montsma-Divock Origi getting Reds' seventh. Liverpool gave debuts to defenders Rhys Williams and Kostas Tsimikas, with former Wolves forward Diogo Jota, £41m signing, coming on in the second half. Most of their goals were excellent. After Shaqiri's brilliant ninth-minute free-kick into the top corner, Minamino curled home from outside the box and teenager Jones scored from Origi's cushion header. Jones then scored via slight deflection to give the Reds an unassailable 4-0 half-time lead. That was the 19-year-old midfielder's fifth goal for his hometown Club. Both goals were difficult, for second One first touch was absolutely exceptional between two opponents and then he opened up and saw an opportunity and finished it off, said Klopp. Lincoln boss Michael Appleton said he asked his players to win the second half and they gave it a good go-especially after Minamino scored a volley seconds after the restart. The Imps had won their first five games this season and had several chances before Edun's goal from Anthony Scully's cross. Scoring was not finished yet. Grujic drilled home from 20 yards, Montsma scored for the third EFL Cup tie in a row-with header in via crossbar-and Origi smashed home from Minamino pass. I think in the first half there was class of finishing from Liverpool, with one or two mistakes, Appleton say. In the second half it was a very difficult and disappointing performance-I think we should have scored four or five goals. If we had put some kind of bucket in top corner or maybe sheet to stop them going in, he say. Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live: we play really good football game tonight. It was easy on the eye. We pass the ball and finish situations off. Boys want to play football and show exceptional attitude.

Klopp delighted at players' performance

F or all the formidable international talent in this Liverpool squad, there is something pleasing about seeing a young local lad-proper Scouser, as Jurgen Klopp has called him-wearing number 17 shirt and running midfield. Comparisons with Steven Gerrard will always be made but it was certainly an impressive performance from Curtis Jones as the fourth round Carabao Cup tie at home to Arsenal next week was earned in flurry of stunning goals. 19-year-old claim two of them. Liverpool have laid out their ambitions by promising to attack every competition and they did just that against League One Lincoln, who-despite score-line and after initial shock-actually acquit themselves extremely well as their own two strikes show. Even so, Lincoln were well-organise and well-beaten. Klopp made 10 changes from the weekend's win over Arsenal-with only survivor Virgil Van Dijk going off at half-time-and was rewarded with hunger and desire and maybe determination from few players, such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Grujic, making his first appearance since December 2017, to show they have a future at club. Tellingly, both score. Thats how it should be, Klopp say. Wear a shirt and show who you are. I am happy with everything. He should be and, especially, surely, with Jones, who scored two superb goals and dominated throughout having, as he later say, wait for my turn. There is still space for improvement. Everybody knows my opinion about Curtis Jones, Klopp say. He is an exceptional talent and we will have some fun with him, I am pretty sure, in the future. It felt like promise rather than optimistic claim and despite the arrival of Thiago Alcantara and the depth of midfield options, Jones should get more opportunities, not least because Liverpool are fighting on all fronts. Jones is earning them. Maybe aybeit might have been a little different had there been 10 000 fans inside this stadium which Lincoln manager Michael Appleton had craved and maybe it might also have been different if his side had not been so totally overwhelmed inside 36 minutes with the ferocity of Liverpool's pressing as, Klopp later say, Takumi Minamino set tone and remarkable accuracy of their finishing. Masterclass, Appleton ruefully say. So goals come. For first, Minamino was brought down by Lewis Montsma, which allowed Shaqiri sight of goal. Twenty five yards out, he grabbed it with a powerful free-kick that was whipped beyond goalkeeper Alex Palmer and high inside his near post. Liverpool pressed again with Montsma at fault as he attempted to bring the ball out from his area only for his pass to be intercepted by Harvey Elliott who was attempting to pick out Divock Origi. Montsma block, it fell to Minamino and he curled a first-time shot that left Palmer root. Then it was Jones ' turn. Origi won a header from Elliot's cross and it dropped to the midfielder who deftly drag it back, took touch and took shot around the goalkeeper.

How youthful Liverpool thrashed Lincoln

Liverpool travel to Lincoln City for a third round clash in the EFL Cup, with Jurgen Klopp set to rotate pack for a competition that will be close to the bottom of the Reds' pecking order. Liverpool also have a big Premier League clash over the weekend against Arsenal, and that means heavyweights will definitely not play in this one. Lincoln City made the third round with a sensational 5-0 win over Bradford City in the previous round. They only scrapped through the opening round, needing a penalty shootout to get past Scunthorpe unite. Liverpool reached the quarterfinals of this competition last year, but the young side lost 5-0 to Aston Villa that day, with the entire first team having to travel to Doha to play in the FIFA Club World Cup.

Opta stats: Rampant, relentless Reds

Lincoln City v Liverpool Thursday 24 September, 19: 45 Live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event Appleton's counter-attack system is working wonders Lincoln City have been one of the most active League One clubs in summer in terms of transfers With 12 sign up before their third tier opener, boss Michael Appleton had do bulk of his business already, although he is still on the lookout to add attack-mind player to complete finishing touches to his squad. His team have looked good so far, winning five in a row in all competitions and perfect Two-out-of-Two in the League. Saturday's 1-2 triumph at MK Dons was another counter-attacking masterclass. So many teams are playing this way now, and imps are well-drill with outstanding organisation. Indeed, MK Dons boss Russell Martin commented on Imps by saying how good they were out of possession. In terms of EFL Cup, City are looking to reach the fourth round of competition for just the second time, last doing so in 1967-8. En route to this game, they thrash Bradford on road 0-5 alongside 1-2 victory at Crewe. Reds begin their EFL Cup campaign following a perfect top flight start. It's great draw to have six-times European Champions at LNER Stadium, and their top-flight campaign has started with two victories against Leeds and Chelsea-give or take a few scares in the opener. Manager Jurgen Klopp's transfer business might not be done yet, although the additions of Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara are top-class. Klopp has a habit of finding particular players for a specific area. And while it sounds easy, clubs spend fortunes trying to achieve that knack but regularly fail. Jota could be an interesting one to get run-out here, but I'm expecting squad players such as Rhian Brewster, Harvey Elliott, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi to be involve-so it's always worth waiting for that all-important team news. Liverpool's U21s play on Tuesday night, so that could have an impact in terms of youngsters being available. Last term Liverpool had a crazy EFL Cup run. The opening 0-2 win at MK Dons was fairly mundane in comparison to carefree 5-5 with Arsenal and kids losing 5-0 at Aston Villa. For the past two weeks, markets have largely been the same for TV games; with Premier League clubs ultra-short, and League One / Two clubs in Double figures. I only fancied two upsets previously. One was Burton against Aston Villa, with Albion holding on to 1-1 until 88 minutes. The other was Luton on Tuesday night, and bar a sloppy bit of defending to concede a penalty just before the break, they were in game for Double Chance bet for a while until two late goals on 88 and 92. While 88 minutes is clearly not a lucky number for me, it highlights how strong teams can assert late on. Maybe it's fitness, but lot is concentration.

What the managers said

Danny Cowley had sympathy for former club Lincoln City as Liverpool ran riot at Sincil Bank. The Imps were 4-0 down at the break in the Carabao Cup tie as Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones all score. Minamino scored in the first minute of the second half before Tayo Edun pulled one back. Marko Grujic added sixth, but Lincoln showed impressive resolve with Lewis Montsman making it 6-2. Speaking at half-time on Sky Sports, Cowley said Premier League champions are virtually unstoppable. It's been a tough night for Lincoln. It's fantastic free-kick to open the scoring, he say. Lincoln have tried to be open and expansive and the finish from Minamino is exquisite. Curtis Jones is going to be the top player. To be fair to Lincoln, it's four great goals they've concede. Liverpool suffocated Lincoln and turned the ball over. Lincoln have create some chances, but the work ethic of Liverpool is phenomenal. After the match, Cowley add: Klopp has a squad he can call upon and although he's get problems at centre-half, he's got Fabinho, who was world class against Chelsea. They'll want to be competitive on all fronts. What he'll be most pleased with is they've made 10 changes and perform at the level they have. Lincoln were more aggressive with their press in the second half. They had three or four clear chances. It's good set piece to score from. The goalkeeper should maybe come and deal with it, but he doesn't. I think they've recruited really well. They've got a fantastic director of football in Jez George. They've recruited for the style they want to play. I think they'll surprise few.

TALKING POINT

That might sound odd if youre just looking at the scoreline. But it looked like being much worse at one stage. Seconds after half-time, Reds led 5-0 and looked capable of hitting double figures. So it was to Imps immense credit that they didnt fold at that point. Instead, they hit back by taking the game to their illustrious opponents. City could have, and probably should, have scored more than two they do through Tayo Edun and Lewis Montsma. Both goals were well-take, with Edun showing great footwork before slotting past Adrian and Montsma pulling another goal back with a bullet header. Liverpool didnt look anywhere near as solid once Virgil Van Dijk had been replaced by Fabinho at half-time.
