In the early rounds of cup competitions, it is normal for elite clubs to field their second-string side as they tend to face lower-league opposition.

However, Liverpool are in a predicament as they have been drawn against Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup.

The two Premier League giants will go head to head at Anfield on Wednesday, three days before facing each other again at Stamford Bridge in a top-flight match.

The contest may perhaps give second-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who has been an unpouplar figure among supporters on Twitter this season, some rare minutes on the pitch, but when we asked you who should start at Anfield, the majority of fans want Alisson to keep his place.

The Brazilian signed for the Merseyside outfit from Roma in the summer and has started every single one of the Reds competitive matches so far this season, all seven of which they have won.
