Liverpool may face disqualification from the Carabao Cup following an investigation by the EFL into the eligibility of one of the players they fielded against MK Dons on Wednesday. Jurgen Klopp made changes to his first-team line up as they thrived 2-0 to qualify for the third round tie. One of those lads, however, included 22-year-old Pedro Chirivella who may have not met the registration criteria- related to an International Transfer Certificate issue.
The EFL has the authority to fine or eject the club from the competition. The Reds released a statement saying “The club is aware of a potential administrative issue pertaining to one of our players. We are working with relevant authorities in order to establish the facts of the matter and will be making no further comment until this process is complete.” Liverpool made eleven changes to the team that won 2-1 against Chelsea in the Premier League introducing the likes of Herbie Kane and Sepp van den Berg. Even if the Merseyside base team are found guilty of ht offense, they may be likely to be fined rather than eliminated.
Liverpool was tied With Arsenal and the Reds may host The Gunners on 30th October.
With the Return of Wing back duo Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney, this looks to be an interesting game to anticipate.
