Lincoln City vs Liverpool, Carabao Cup: live score and latest updates
Auto updateOn Off
Archibald, on from the bench, really should score. He has a free header on the edge of the six-yard box but guides right at Adrian who makes a good reaction save.
Jota cuts in from the left, shooting from the edge of the box but it goes just wide. That would have been a nice moment on debut.
Jones bursts forward but loses control of the possession. Minamino then puts in a bad tackle on Grant, should have been booked really.
Keita is coming on for Shaqiri, who opened the scoring for Liverpool tonight.
Fabinho takes it. He fires low but it just does not curl enough. Decent effort. Not sure why Shaqiri has been knocked off free kicks, mind.
Liverpool seek revenge. Minamino bursts forward and is fouled on the edge of the box. Eyoma booked for the challenge.
And right away Lincoln score... they win a corner, Adrian comes for it but is beaten in the air by Montsma who heads it home.
Not great goalkeeping.
The ball falls to Grujic on the edge of the box. He releases a shot with his right which just has too much power on it, sneaking into the bottom corner. Normal service resumes.
The game has been very open this half. Liverpool understandably taking their foot of the gas.
Shaqiri breaks forward, finding Tsimikas but his shot goes well wide.
Lincoln really do deserve this goal. Edun finds some space in the box, he rolls the ball onto his right and curls it past Adrian. Nicely taken.
Grant sends in a dangerous cross but Eyoma puts it well wide. He should have done much better from close range! Bridcutt is off, replaced by Hopper. James Jones off too, replaced by McGrandles.
Liverpool break down the left through the lively Tsimikas. His cross is overcooked however, Palmer claims with ease.
Elliott is coming off - and he is replaced by new recruit Diogo Jota! He will be eager to get on the scoresheet.
It has been a frantic start to the half, both sides eager to score. Another chance for Lincoln! Scully latches on to a cross but Adrian makes a good save from the resulting effort.
Another corner is won. Grujic wins it but his header goes well over the bar.
Well, the half could not have started much worse for Lincoln. Liverpool look hungry for more goals too!
Huge chance for Lincoln! Anderson goes through one-on-one but Adrian keeps the effort and the rebound out. Liverpool counter. Origi fires from long range, the ball is blocked but falls to Minamino. His attempt is deflected out for a corner.
Liverpool press Lincoln off the ball, Elliott goes through on goal but his effort is saved. The ball falls to Minamino who volleys it into the empty net.
That goal took 18 seconds after the break...
Fabinho is on for Virgil van Dijk - not too much of a downgrade then...
3 - Liverpool have scored three goals from outside the box in a single game for the first time since February 2016 against Aston Villa. Pinpoint. #CarabaoCup pic.twitter.com/1nUF4fZiUl— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 24, 2020
Both have been excellent so far. They have looked sharp, been creative and taken their chances.
Jurgen Klopp will like what he has seen.
