The Reds had to overcome Norwich City 3-0 in round 4 and were dominant in their display despite fielding a weakened side, as expected. But this is where managers really have a struggle prioritizing competitions. Jurgen Klopp has never taken this competition seriously and as a result, the Reds are yet to win a domestic cup competition.

Well, it’s time for the German to realize that silverware is important no matter in which form it comes. Drawing Preston, albeit away, is a gift from the gods and they must not let it go to waste. The Reds last won the League Cup in 2012 during the days of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard. It’s time they bring back the glory of being a dominant force in cup competitions in England.
