THE PREDICTION

This third round encounter will see a much-changed Liverpool team face a buoyant Lincoln City side who have won their opening five matches of the 2020-21 season. Jurgen Klopp will shuffle his pack heavily and most eyes will be on the possible involvement of new signings Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota for the visitors. Regardless of who lines up for Liverpool, this is still a massive occasion for Lincoln - though it is one that is tinged with what-might-have-beens as the match will be played without spectators. The home team have certainly enjoyed a good start to their 2020-21 campaign and will be full of enthusiasm, but they may struggle to match the quality that even a less than full strength Liverpool will have on the pitch. A Liverpool win is predicted in what should be an open contest with plenty of action at both ends of the pitch, so combining an away win with over 2.5 goals could be an option worth taking.
