Liverpool’s coach Jürgen Klopp would be ready to set a new and incredible record for the Reds in the FA Cup, where he and his team will face Southampton in Anfield for the Fifth Round of the competition.

In this sense, it would be worth mentioning that the game against the Saints will also be the 200th Anfield’s FA Cup clash of the Reds in the club’s history, despite the fact that Klopp could also leave an important landmark to engrave his name again in the books of history of the Merseyside institution.

The manager, who will again face important absences in his squad, will present another experimental lineup, where the Liverpool’s academy players are expected to lead the team’s midfield given the massive effort made by players like Wataru Endo in the Carabao Cup Final that the Reds won against Chelsea last Sunday.

Following this premise, Jürgen Klopp could start Conor Bradley, Alexis Mac Allister and Cody Gakpo after each playing less than 90 minutes against Chelsea, and Jarrell Quansah, Kostas Tsimikas, James McDonnell and Bobby Clark could follow the same path and be included in the starting XI of the German manager, who could set a new record for Liverpool by giving minutes to a sensational youngster from Liverpool academy.

What’s the new Liverpool record Jürgen Klopp could set?

This youngster would be the English playmaker Trey Nyoni, who would become the club’s youngest-ever player in the FA Cup at the age of 16 years and 243 days in case of receiving playing minutes by Klopp, who could give equally entry to other promising youngsters like the 18-year-old striker Lewis Koumas, and the 17-year-old left side defender Amara Nallo.
