Liverpool have not won a domestic cup for nearly 10 years, and their first opportunity to do so will begin on Tuesday night when they travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City in the third round of the League Cup.
The Reds have been just about perfect in the Premier League so far with four wins and a draw in their first five games, conceding just one goal and scoring 12 in the process.
With a near fully fit squad, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that rotation will be a feature in his squad selections over the coming weeks with the cup and Champions League kicking off in the past week.
That will likely begin at Carrow Road with a raft of changes set to be made, allowing many of the first-team stars to rest ahead of a clash with Brentford in the league.
Caoimhin Kelleher should come into the side in goal to replace Alisson. The young Irishman showed glimpses of his talent in limited opportunities last season and is highly-rated at both club and international level.
Unfortunately for Neco Williams, injury is likely to keep him out of the line-up on this occasion, meaning Joe Gomez could fill the right-back slot, with Kostas Tsimikas keeping his position on the left from the weekend win over Crystal Palace.
Ibrahima Konate made his competitive debut in that Palace game and could play again, with a potential opportunity for Nat Phillips to see his first minutes of the campaign.
James Milner played at right-back on the weekend due to an illness to Trent Alexander-Arnold, but the 35-year-old should return to his usual midfield role in midweek, alongside Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Divock Origi has played himself into contention with an impressive display against Milan in the Champions League last week and should start again here, while Takumi Minamino should be given an opportunity to prove himself alongside the Belgian.
One of the highlights of Liverpool’s pre-season was 16-year-old right-winger Kaide Gordon, and after the youngster was left out of the Under-23 side at the weekend, signs are pointing to a potential senior debut.
With games ramping up over the coming weeks and plenty of questions surrounding Liverpool’s depth, Klopp’s role players will be eager to perform well and stake a claim for regular games going forward.
