Curtis Jones becomes Liverpool’s youngest ever captain.
The 19-year-old is one of four players to keep his place from the side that drew 2-2 at the New Meadow. Neco Williams, Pedro Chirivella and Harvey Elliott are also retained.
With Jurgen Klopp and his first-team away for the Premier League’s winter break, a raft of youngsters come into the team.
Adam Lewis, Leighton Clarkson, Liam Millar and 18-year-old midfielder Jake Cain all make their first senior starts.
Starting XI: Kelleher; Williams, Hoever, Van den Berg, Lewis, Chirivella, Clarkson, Cain, Elliott, Jones, Millar.
