Cameron Brannagan 11 Liverpool host Bournemouth in the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday evening, looking for their first win under Jurgen Klopp.Since replacing Brendan Rodgers as Reds boss, Klopp has seen his side draw three times – against Spurs and Southampton in the Premier League and Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.It will be the club’s third consecutive match at Anfield and, while some see an improvement in performances under Klopp, they are still yet to win under his stewardship.Liverpool are fortunate to still be in the competition though, after edging through on penalties against League Two Carlisle last time out, but Klopp will surely see the League Cup as an opportunity to win silverware in his first season on Merseyside.Klopp gave little clues of his starting XI in his press conference ahead of the match, but he will definitely be without the suspended James Milner, who received his fifth booking of the season in the Saints draw on Sunday.He also has a number of injuries to contend with, including captain Jordan Henderson and long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Danny Ings, while he says some of his squad are carrying minor problems picked up against Southampton.  Christian Benteke will miss out with a knee injury that could also make him unavailable for Saturday’s game away to Chelsea.Daniel Sturridge is still sidelined with a knee injury, after Klopp said he was making good progress but was not yet fit enough to be football training despite working in the gym with the physiotherapist.This will be Liverpool’s third match in six days, therefore Klopp said he would be making changes to his side.Rumour has it that the German will give a Liverpool debut to Academy graduate Connor Randall, at right back, while fellow youngsters Cameron Brannagan and Joao Texeira will also start the game, in midfield and attack, respectively.Bournemouth, meanwhile, will be hoping to return to winning ways after a 5-1 thrashing at home to Tottenham in the league on Sunday.They have already face Liverpool this season, in the Premier League, when the Reds were 1-0 winners at Anfield in August.So who will make the starting XI?
