Liverpool face elimination from the Carabao Cup as the EFL investigate whether they fielded an ineligible player or not in their victory over MK Dons during the week, James Pearce of the Athletic reports.

The player involved in the investigation has not been named but it is believed that he was not properly registered as the EFL look into the issue.

Liverpool have acknowledged the investigation and told the Athletic: "The club are aware of a potential administrative issue pertaining to one of our players."

They refused to comment further, however, until the process of investigation was complete.

Liverpool do face elimination but they could also be fined for the breach depending on the EFL's findings.

The team Klopp picked was filled with youngsters and fringe players as he rotated heavily ahead of the Premier League game against Sheffield United on Saturday. They will play Arsenal in the next round if they are allowed to continue.
