Lincoln have won all five of their competitive games this season and currently sit second in League One.
The Imps will name a strong XI that cannot be underestimated when they come up against Liverpool’s youngsters.
However, the Reds’ kids have a point to prove early in the season. Jurgen Klopp hasn’t invested in too many new signings this summer, meaning squad place are very much up for grabs. They’ll be keen to impress.
