Frankie McAvoy’s team look set for a tough evening’s work when they play host to Liverpool in the fourth round of the EFL Cup this evening.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to once again rotate his team and involve a number of fringe players, but Maguire watched the Reds do the same against Norwich, only to run out 3-0 winners, and he is wary of their strength in depth.



The forward thinks Liverpool have a set way of playing that will not change no matter who Klopp picks, however he is relishing the game in front of a packed Deepdale as Preston look to spring a surprise.


“Liverpool won’t play the team they did on Sunday against Manchester United”, Maguire was quoted as saying by the Lancashire Post.



“But there will be a number of first-team players who have been around it who will get a game.


“Liverpool have a way of playing whoever the personnel are.



“I remember seeing the team that played against Norwich in the last round.


“They made a number of changes but still won 3-0.


“Whether it is a young player or someone who has been on the fringes, they will come in and do a job.


“We have a job to do and I’m looking forward to the game. It will be a packed house at Deepdale.


“The atmosphere will be different than it was at Blackpool.


“Hopefully, we can play well and the fans bring their voices.


“We are underdogs, most teams who play Liverpool in the Premier League and Champions League are.”


While Preston sit a lowly 19th in the Championship table, their home form has been solid and they have not lost at Deepdale since the opening day of the season.
