The Reds boss confirmed Simon Mignolet will start in goal ahead of Loris Karius, who was between the sticks on Saturday as the Reds extended their unbeaten run to nine matches in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over West Brom at Anfield. Klopp still feels there is work to be done, though.

"We can defend better, we can attack better, we can create better, we can have a better balance in the game - there are a lot of things to improve," Klopp said.

Jurgen Klopp insists he hasn't spoken to Steven Gerrard about a return

Tottenham are unbeaten in the Premier League this season but missed the chance to go top after they were held to a goalless draw by Bournemouth at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino fielded a youthful side in the previous round against Gillingham and again plans to give fringe players an opportunity.

Liverpool v Tottenham: EFL Cup tie promises to be all-action encounter

"We believe in them and if my team is the same as against Gillingham or some changes, they need to prove they have quality," Pochettino added. "You know, always the big, big players start their career and they need to make their debut sometimes in a difficult place like Anfield."

Liverpool have reached the quarter-final of the League Cup in the last two seasons. The last time they did this for three consecutive seasons was a run of five between 1979-80 and 1983-84 - a run that saw them win the competition in the last four of those.

Tottenham have lost three of their last four League Cup games against fellow Premier League sides, beating Newcastle 4-0 in December 2014.

Mauricio Pochettino is expecting Liverpool to be fresher for the EFL Cup tie at Anfield, but insists his Tottenham side will still go there to win

With one goal and three assists, Erik Lamela has been involved in more goals than any other player in the EFL Cup this season.

Charlie Nicholas' prediction

You know what, I know we're all excited about the Manchester derby because of all that's going on there, but this is the best footballing game for me.

There will be a few changes and Spurs will probably switch their full-backs as usual, Vincent Janssen should come back in for another chance and Kevin Wimmer could get a game, although it will take him a bit of time to get up to speed.

I'll be interested to see what team Jurgen Klopp goes for. Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi need a game but will he jeopardise the system to incorporate them?

Spurs are well drilled and Liverpool can be frustrated, as we've seen in recent games, failing to break down United then falling over the line at the weekend after we got very excited about them.
