Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is set to hand starts to the trio of Cameron Brannagan, Connor Randall and Joao Teixeira this evening, according to the Mirror. 

The 48-year-old manager, who is still looking for his first win in charge of the Anfield outfit, will watch on as the Reds take to the field against Premier League counterparts Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup. 

The same report claims that Brannagan, Randall and Teixeira have all impressed the club's new chief in training, so it appears that they will get their chance to shine in front of the ever expecting Kop.

One thing is for sure, Klopp shouldn't underestimate the importance of tonight's clash. The Reds are in desperate need of building momentum ahead of this weekend's tantalising fixture against rivals Chelsea. 

The Capital One Cup represents an opportunity for the club's gifted young stars to shine, but it's also a chance for Klopp to secure silverware in his debut campaign on English soil. The home faithful will be expecting a first win under the new regime.
