Liverpool team news vs Derby as Jurgen Klopp overhauls starting line-up with 11 changes | Football | Sport

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made wholesale changes to his starting lineup for their Carabao Cup third round clash with Derby County at Anfield. The German has made 11 changes from the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday as he looks to protect his star players for their Premier League fixture before the World Cup break begins, handing chances to several fringe players.

Klopp is set to hand some precious first-team minutes to fringe players such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones, who have both been out with injuries for the majority of the season so far.

Youngsters Bobby Clark and Melkamu Fraudendorf have been included in the starting XI having been left out of the development squad’s match against Dinamo Zagreb, fuelling speculation the duo were set to be involved at Anfield.

Key players such as Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah have been rested for the clash and will not play any part after Klopp named his 20-man squad for the game, while Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino are on the bench.
