A much-changed Liverpool side eased past MK Dons and into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
Jurgen Klopp altered his entire starting line-up for the trip to stadium: MK as Harvey Elliott became the youngest player to start a competitive match for the club.
The 16-year-old put in an accomplished display and twice hit the crossbar as James Milner profited from terrible goalkeeping from Stuart Moore to put the Reds in front before Ki-Jana Hoever wrapped up a comfortable 2-0 victory.
Paul Tisdale – who took Liverpool to a third-round FA Cup replay in 2016 when in charge of Exeter – saw his MK Dons side, showing five changes of their own, create plenty of chances but lacked the cutting edge to truly threaten Liverpool’s progression.
James Milner showed his enduring quality by running the show as Liverpool beat MK Dons 2-0 to progress to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
He opened the scoring, albeit in fortuitous fashion, as Dons keeper Stuart Moore failed to hold his effort and it trickled into his own goal.
