Confirmed Liverpool Team: Reds makes 10 changes; 'sensational' attacker starts; surprise as Klopp gives Enrique captaincy

Liverpool boss Jurken Klopp has rung the changes yet again for tonight's League Cup clash with Exeter City.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Randall, Ilori, Enrique, Smith, Brannagan, Allen, Stewart, Ibe, Teixeira, Benteke

SUBS: Bogdan, Flanagan, Kent, Sinclair, Ojo, Maguire, Chirivella

* 10 changes from the side that started against Man United, but it's practically the same side as the first-leg (with the exception of Mignolet, Benteke, and the allegedly 'sensational' Ibe).

* Teixeira, Brannagan, Stewart, and Ilori get another chance to stake a claim for an ongoing place in the first-team squad.

* I'm a fan of Teixeira, but he didn't reach his full potential in the first leg. With the much-improved playing surface at Anfield, the Portuguese should be able to impose himself more on tonight's game.

* Jon Flanagan returns from his mammoth injury layoff, and if he gets onto the field, hopefully he'll come through unscathed.

* Danny Ward and Steven Caulker are both ineligible for the game.

* Tonight's captain: Jose Enrique, which is a surprise given the presence of Allen in the starting lineup.

Probable formation:

------------ Mignolet
Randall -- Ilori - Enrique ---- Smith
- Brannagan - Allen -- Stewart
--------- Ibe ----- Teixeira
------------ Benteke
