Reason For Lincoln City vs Liverpool Predictions

  • Lincoln City are averaging 2.4 goals per 90 minutes this season.
  • Liverpool’s Carabao Cup matches averaged 5.66 goals per game last term.
  • Liverpool are expected to name an XI made up of fringe and young players at Lincoln.

Can Imps spring a surprise against an understrength Liverpool?

Armed with the momentum from five straight wins in the early throes of the 2020/21 campaign, League One high fliers Lincoln City can approach their high-profile Carabao Cup clash against Liverpool with plenty of confidence this week.

The Imps battered five goals without reply past Bradford City in the last round, and Lincoln followed that fine away win with another in the league at the weekend in a hard-fought 2-1 win at Milton Keynes Dons.

Liverpool meanwhile, made it two wins from two in the Premier League following a superb 2-0 victory at Chelsea, though none of the stars that featured at Stamford Bridge are expected to be involved at the LNER Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp used the Carabao Cup as a means to give minutes to the young and fridge players in his squad last term – a move that led to some thrilling, open contests with an average of 5.66 goals scored per 90 minutes of league cup action involving his makeshift teams.

The German coach is expected to ring the changes again for Liverpool’s first game in tournament this season on Thursday, and we could be in for another cracker as a result.

A changed XI could lead to some disjointedness in the Reds’ defensive play, and that could allow Lincoln, who have averaged 2.4 goals per 90 minutes this season, to get on the scoresheet.

Even with their big guns missing, Liverpool should have sufficient quality to strike back however, with Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Harry Wilson all targeting minutes.

With that considered, the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score market is worth plundering this week at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction backs the Merseysiders’ superior class to tell in a 3-1 victory.
