A number of fringe players were given the chance to impress against Liverpool in the League Cup on Tuesday.

But only two of the eleven that lost 2-1 at Anfield have kept their place in the side for the visit of Leicester City: Eric Dier starts at centre back while Vincent Janssen is the lone striker.

Elsewhere, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele both start, while Erik Lamela isn’t in the 18-man squad at all. The club has revealed the Argentine misses out due to illness.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.



  1. Why not try C.Carter Vickers up front? He played there briefly in one game and showed plenty of speed and good ball control skills.jannsen hasn’t proven he can finish. Also more shots should be taken from the 18 mark on inside the box. Everybody is trying so hard to make the perfect little set up shot when they should be putting the ball on net!
