Tranmere - Liverpool
Liverpool are the reigning Champions League winners and they are huge favorites against lower division side Tranmere Rovers. However, I think this match could finish with a draw. There are only one reason for my pick and it s connect with Liverpool. Manager Jurgen Klopp will play without many first team players. First of all, the entire attack is not available. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are at Africa Cup of Nations, while Roberto Firmino was with Brazil at Copa America. The situation in the defense is similar as four of the five players are unavailable - goalkeeper Allison, full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, and central defender Virgil van Dijk. In addition, two regular midfielder are not in the squad - captain Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum. Considering this fact, I expect Tranmere to escape the defeat.
