Liverpool Field Their Youngest Ever XI For Carabao Cup Tie With Aston Villa

Liverpool Field Their Youngest Ever XI For Carabao Cup Tie With Aston Villa

As expected, Liverpool have fielded an incredibly youthful side for the trip to Aston Villa in tonight's Carabao Cup quarter final.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has given priority to the Club World Cup competition the Reds are competing in, with the German and the rest of his first-team squad all in Qatar for the tournament.

As a result, reserve team boss Neil Critchley is taking charge for the game at Villa Park this evening and has fielded the club's youngest ever XI.

22-year old Pedro Chirivella has been named captain of a team which has an average age of 19 years, six months and three days.

It eclipses the team which played Plymouth in January 2017 and had an average age of 21 years and 296 days.

There's a total of five debutants and to make you feel even older, there's one 16-year old, three 17-year olds and two 18-year olds representing the first-team in the Midlands.

The likes of Harvey Elliott, Ki-Jana Hoever and Sepp van Der Berg have already featured in the cup this season, while Rhian Brewster, who would have been a shoo-in to start, misses out through injury.

The video of them arriving at the stadium genuinely looks like a load of year 10 kids getting off the coach for a school trip. Just imagine the scenes if they go and beat Villa, a fellow Premier League side, on their own patch.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are taking on Monterrey in the semi-final of the Club World Cup tomorrow and will play in Saturday's final if they beat the Mexican outfit.
