Our under 23’s are involved in league action on Monday night when they host Liverpool at the Lamex stadium in the PL2. Fresh from their dramatic 3-1 league victory over Manchester United last week, Burnett’s side will be hoping to carry the momentum into this game, as they look to climb out of the relegation zone. However, getting even a point from Monday’s game will be a very tough challenge indeed. Top of the table Liverpool have been in excellent form this season, the league leaders have managed to score 33 goals from 15 games, and their open attacking football has certainly caught the eye of youth football enthusiasts. The reds Impressive start to the campaign combined with their plethora of talent on the pitch, will make it a tough game for Wayne Burnett’s men. It was a thrilling encounter when these sides met up in Anfield earlier on in the season, Liverpool’s fluent attacking play proved too much for us on that occasion, in a 5-2 defeat. And whilst the reds still have plenty of quality in their side with the likes of Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Bobby Adekayne to choose from. Neil Critchley won’t have the quality of Harry Wilson, Rhian Brewster Cameron Brannagan available, players who they relied heavily on during the first half of the season. If this evenings game is anything’s like the meeting between both the senior sides on Sunday, then we’re in for a treat! COYS

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Whiteman, Eyoma, C.Maghoma, Tanganga, Brown, Skipp, Pritchard(c), Tracey, Roles, Georgiou, Sterling.

Subs from: Austin, Lyons-Foster, Marsh, Duncan, Bennetts.

Doubtful: Samuel Shashoua (Highly doubtful), Nick Tsaroulla and Jonathan Dinzeyi.

Other news: Japhet Tanganga is back to full time training with the development squad after returning from a leg injury.

Previous meetings: 4-2 Liverpool, 3-2 Liverpool, 6-2 Liverpool.

My score prediction: 2-2.

One to watch: The reds young centre forward Ben Woodburn. The Welsh international has 2 goals in six appearances for the reds development side this season.
