Burton v Liverpool Betting Prediction | Football League CupPublished August 23, 2016
As last season showed, Jurgen Klopp loves a cup run. The Liverpool manager was unlucky to see his team lose in both the League Cup final and Europa League final. The EFL Cup, as it is now known, will see the German name a strong side as he aims to bounce back from Premier League defeat against newly-promoted Burnley on Saturday.
Only one of Burton’s five games this season has featured less than four goals. Nigel Clough usually sets the Brewers out to attack. He might take a different approach on Tuesday night, having seen how Sean Dyche fared when he relinquished the ball at Turf Moor. Liverpool play their best football against teams who are willing to attack.
The thing is that Burton don’t seem to be able to play this game very well. They’ve shipped 11 goals in five games and this looks like an opportunity for Reds attackers to fill their boots. The likes of Divock Origi and Marko Grujic are likely to start and stake a claim for a first-team spot.
