Full time

FT: Liverpool progress to the next round thanks to goals from James Milner and Ki-Jana Hoever. Paul Tisdale can be very proud of his side and the performance they have put in this evening. MK Dons had their chances and if it were not for a couple of errors there could have been a different story this evening.

Jurgen Klopp will be happy to progress to the next round without picking up any injuries. The manager will also be extremely pleased with the performances of youngsters Harvey Elliott, Ki-Jana Hoever, Curtis Jones and Caoimhín Kelleher.

21:343 years ago


90' Sepp Van den Berg comes on for Hoever to make his LFC debut.
21:333 years ago
90' Rhian Brewster has had a tough night, epitomised by being on the end of a hefty challenge at the end of this contest. Curtis Jones has been named man of the match by Sky Sports. I think Harvey Elliott may feel slightly aggrieved as he continues to shine, this time cutting in from the left and using his weak foot to bend one onto the crossbar. What a showing from the youngster.
21:243 years ago


82' Herbie Kane replaces Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make his Liverpool debut.
21:223 years ago
79' This time less capable keeping from Kelleher as he flaps at one which requires Lovren to then block an effort off of the line. The Dons are refusing to give up and creating problems for LFC as we approach the final ten minutes.
21:213 years ago
78' Jordan Bowery once again needs too much time in front of goal and his shot is blocked. In fairness to the striker Nombe takes an age to find him and the chance would have been much easier had the pass been played earlier.
21:193 years ago
76' Incredible save! Kelleher makes one of the saves of the season as Bowery meets a Boateng cross. The striker does everything right, heading down but is only stopped by a miraculous save.
21:173 years ago
75' Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has had a quiet evening but he hits one of his typical shots from range and is only denied by the post.
21:143 years ago


72' Alex Gilbey is replaced by Hiram Boateng.
21:143 years ago
71' Kelleher is forced into a first save of the evening, turning one around the post for an MK corner.
21:123 years ago


69' That should be curtains. Positive play from Liverpool sees James Milner swing one in from the left. The ball is hung up towards the back post and KI-Jana Hoever rises highest, attacking the ball and powering a header past a helpless Stuart Moore. What a moment for the youngster.
21:103 years ago
67' MK Dons positive second half showing continues as they force another corner.
21:063 years ago


63' Naby Keita's return from injury lasts one hour as he is replaced by Pedro Chirivella who is making his first LFC appearance in over three years.
21:033 years ago
60' Elliott finds Hoever on the overlap but it is a poor delivery from the youngster. Jordan Houghton replaces Kasumu for MK Dons.
21:023 years ago
59' Now Bowery hits the post, getting on the end of a Russell Martin flick. MK Dons are really fighting to get back in this one!
21:003 years ago
58' Nombe finds himself through on goal but he appears to think he is offside and that allows Lovren to get back and intervene. Good chance.
20:543 years ago
52' Harvey Elliott continues to be dangerous, this time firing into the side netting on his weaker right foot.
20:523 years ago
50' Normal service resumed after the break as Liverpool settle back into dominating possession. Joe Gomez ends up trying his luck from 35 yards but the ball flies into row Z.
20:493 years ago


46' Russell Martin comes on for Dicksensen as we see a change in shape from Paul Tisdale. His side have switched to a three at the back.
20:333 years ago

Half time

45' Liverpool head into the break with a lead of one goal to nil. Paul Tisdale and his side would be level if it were not for a Lorius Karius type mistake from Stuart Moore who fumbled the ball over the line. Harvey Elliott has been the bright spark in a game that has struggled for action so far.
20:283 years ago


41' Awful mistake for MK Dons keeper Stuart Moore as James Milner fizzes a striker straight at him. What should be a routine save ends up going straight through the shot-stopper and Liverpool have gained the lead. The plan was going so well for the Dons.
20:243 years ago
37' Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher appears to handle the ball outside of his area but the referee lets it go. The youngster looked very concerned once he had gained the ball... 

Let-off for the Reds.

20:163 years ago
30' Rhian Brewster, who has failed to get into the game so far is inches away from scoring his first senior goal. James Milner flashes one across the face of goal but the striker is just unable to reach the ball.
20:143 years ago
28' MK Dons create their second chance of the game through a cross from the dangerous Nombe but Alex Gilbey cannot keep his strike down and blazes it over.
20:123 years ago
26' Absolute magic from Harvey Elliott. The midfielder picks the ball up on the right and beats a couple of Dons players before delivering a sumptuous cross onto the head of James Milner who should score. That was the first piece of real quality in this encounter.
20:073 years ago
20' Ki-Jana Hoever has struggled at right-back so far in possession and the youngster gives the ball away again. Liverpool are dominating possession once again but the Dons look comfortable in executing their game plan. 
20:013 years ago
15' Curtis Jones is next to test the Dons goal but Moore gets down well to save.
19:593 years ago
12' James Milner goes on a mazy run down the left and squares the ball across goal to the waiting Harvey Elliott. The 16-year-old will never get a better chance to score his first LFC goal but fires the tap-in straight into the crossbar and the ball flies away to safety.
19:573 years ago


10' MK Dons go route one and Dejan Lovren is dispossessed heading back to his own goal. McGrandles is then picked out in front of goal and can only blast his attempt over the bar. That is a huge opportunity missed.
19:553 years ago
8' Paul Tisdale has set his side up to sit in and then counter at pace when they can win the ball back. The Dons are effecting the plan with success so far, winning the ball back in midfield on a couple of occasions but the strikers have failed to stay onside.
19:513 years ago
5' MK Dons are finally seeing some of the ball and have earned a free kick just inside their own half. Milner appeared to hurt himself in the collision but is OK to continue for now.
19:483 years ago
2' Liverpool have fashioned a corner after dominating early possession.
19:463 years ago
1' 16 year-old Harvey Elliott gets us underway.
19:433 years ago
The teams are in the tunnel and we are just moments away from kick-off!
19:243 years ago

Dons pedigree

MK Dons have some history in this competition having beaten Manchester United 4-0 back in 2014 in a second round clash. Benik Afobe and Will Grigg both scored braces that evening to secure a famous victory but can Paul Tisdale's side write another giant killing into their history books?

Big night for Liverpool youngsters

Tonight's game provides Liverpool's youngsters with a real chance to state a claim for minutes in the Reds formidable first string side. Rhian Brewster, Ki-Jana Hoever and Harvey Elliott have been tipped to go far and tonight represents an excellent opportunity for the young trio.

Tisdale quotes

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Tisdale spoke about his emotions heading into the game:

“I'm very relaxed, it's an occasion and an opportunity to play in front of 29,000 fans, in your stadium against the European champions – let’s just enjoy it. I feel excited.

This is not win at all costs. It would be marvellous if we did, but we're not planning or expecting it to happen. We'd like it to, and who knows, but let's just go and give it our best shot. We've got nothing to lose.

I don't think we can dig into our usual preparations, so it will come down to some simple preparation, discussions and details.

When you get a game like this, I can only pick 11. Some will be really disappointed. It's only one game, and I’m sure they'll be disappointed if they're not picked against Sunderland too, but this is the one they all want to play in. Of all the pressures I have, that's the biggest.”

Liverpool form

Liverpool have been unstoppable in their pursuit of a first Premier League title, winning all six of their league fixtures so far.

Their one loss this campaign came to Napoli last week, losing out 2-0 away in Naples.

11:503 years ago

MK Dons form

Paul Tisdale's men come into this one off the back of two narrow 1-0 losses to Ipswich Town and Southend United.

Prior to that one, the Dons had won three on the bounce and therefore are used to that winning feeling this season despite a couple of losses.
