Having proved himself a strong Plan B for Klopp's men already this season, Al Hain-Cole is backing the former Blues striker to come up with the goods

With both managers expected to rotate their teams ahead of this weekend's big Premier League encounter, Liverpool and Chelsea's squad players will be aiming to impress in Wednesday's EFL Cup clash.

Having already showed his worth with the opening goal against Paris Saint-Germain this season, Daniel Sturridge is a strong 5/1 (6.00) bet to underline his quality once again by opening the scoring against his former club.

The 29-year-old has actually scored two goals from just over 90 minutes of football this campaign, so looks like decent value at 7/5 (2.40) anytime odds in a match he should start.

Another man looking to come back to haunt his old side, Dominic Solanke is priced at 7/4 (2.75) to strike anytime in what could be his first appearance of the campaign.

Highly impressive in his first start for Jurgen Klopp's side despite being taken off at half-time versus Southampton, Xherdan Shaqiri can be backed at 15/8 (2.88) to follow that up by opening his account for the team he joined in the summer.

At the other end of the pitch, Alvaro Morata will be determined to stake his claim for a recall to Maurizio Sarri’s team after being usurped in the starting line-up by Olivier Giroud recently.

Considering his quality, the Spain international looks favourably priced at 6/1 (7.00) to open the scoring, not to mention 7/4 (2.75) anytime odds.

Having put in a number of eye-catching performances in pre-season, youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is available at 13/5 (3.60) to grab his first goal for the senior side.

Although set to give a number of squad players a run-out, the Blues' assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has confirmed that star man Eden Hazard will be part of the travelling squad on Merseyside.

With five goals to his name in just four starts so far this campaign, the mercurial Belgian is a tempting 8/5 (2.60) anytime bet considering he has scored five times against the Reds in the past.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
