Algerian youngster Yasser Larouci is set to be named in the Liverpool first team squad for the first time in his career.
The 18-year-old has featured under Jurgen Klopp in friendlies, but never in a competitive fixture. He will be given the number 70 shirt.
Liverpool will be using only academy players for their English League Cup quarter-final against Liverpool.
However, Larouci is carrying a minor injury which means he is only expected to be named on the bench. In the unlikely case that he does start, he would play in the left-back position.
Liverpool have flown the main squad out to Qatar ahead of the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup. Follow all the Algerian football news in English with DZ Football.
