However, Red's boss Jurgen Klopp has said that neither he or any of his senior players will be involved in the tie as they observe the Premier League's new winter break.

Speaking after the game he said: "In April 2019 we got a letter from the Premier League, I think, where they asked us to respect the winter break and not to organise international friendlies or competitive games. We respect that.

"So I said to the boys already two weeks ago that we will have a winter break which means we will not be there.

"It will be the kids who play that game."

Manchester United had a much easier time of it, beating League One side Tranmere Rovers 6-0 at Prenton Park.

Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard were amongst the goalscorers as some of the pressure that had been building on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was lifted.

However, chants against United's owners, the Glazer's, could still be heard from the travelling supporters.
