Liverpool face threat of Carabao Cup expulsion after MK Dons win
By Alistair Magowan
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp handed starts to four teenagers in the third-round win over MK Dons
Liverpool could face expulsion from the Carabao Cup if they are found to have fielded an ineligible player against MK Dons on Wednesday.
The EFL is investigating the third-round win, in which Liverpool fielded four teenagers in the starting line-up.
Sanctions could range from a fine to being ejected from the cup. Liverpool face Arsenal in the next round.
"The club are aware of a potential administrative issue pertaining to one of our players," a club statement said.
"We are working with the relevant authorities in order to establish the facts of the matter and will be making no further comment until this process is complete."
The EFL added: "We are currently considering the matter."
The identity of the player in question has not been disclosed.
In 2014, Sunderland were fined by the Premier League and the EFL after they fielded an ineligible player in four league matches and a League Cup match.
The club admitted they made an administrative error with striker Ji Dong-won but were not deducted points or kicked out of the cup.
Liverpool beat MK Dons 2-0 thanks to goals from James Milner and 17-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever, and are set to host Arsenal at Anfield in the week commencing 28 October.

Bolton Wanderers: Doncaster Rovers match postponed over welfare concerns
BBC. Breaking news
Bolton Wanderers have postponed Tuesday's League One match against Doncaster Rovers, amid welfare concerns for the young players in their squad.
Financially-stricken Wanderers have been in administration since May.
They were only able to field three senior outfield players for Saturday's 5-0 loss to Tranmere Rovers.
"Whilst the threat of further sanctions is obvious, nothing can be allowed to impact on the welfare of such a young group," a club statement said.
"With so many senior players injured or unavailable, the squad has performed heroically."
Manager Phil Parkinson claimed after the Tranmere defeat that he had written to the English Football League to voice his concerns about player welfare.

Bolton Wanderers' administrators identify preferred new owner
Bolton Wanderers will have a 12-point deduction applied next season as a result of going into administration
Bolton Wanderers' administrators have identified a preferred new owner to take over the League One club.
Final offers were received from five parties before Wednesday's 16:00 BST deadline.
The successful bid met the criteria outlined by the administrators, including proof of funds for the next two years and EFL approval.
Paul Appleton of administrators David Rubin & Partners hopes a heads of terms agreement will be signed by Friday.
The preferred bidder, who has been notified of their successful offer, has also agreed to inject £1m into the club in order to rebuild the playing squad.
"I am delighted we have been able to reach a more than satisfactory outcome to this stage of the process and I am confident the preferred bidder has the ability to take Bolton Wanderers forward," said Appleton.
"Until that (heads of terms agreement) has been signed, we are still bound by the confidentiality agreement within the process.
"But I can assure all Bolton Wanderers fans that the preferred bidder has both the financial ability and the determination to turn around the fortunes of this great football club."
Wanderers went into administration at the end of a tumultuous season which saw problems on and off the field, and culminated in relegation from the Championship.
A winding-up petition against the club over an unpaid tax bill was suspended by the High Court after the club went into administration, and an emergency food bank was set up to help out staff who had not been paid.
Bolton have also released a list of the 14 players that remain contracted to the club next season, including goalkeeper Ben Alnwick and Northern Ireland striker Josh Magennis.

Joe Thompson: Former Rochdale midfielder wins Sir Tom Finney Award
Rochdale midfielder Joe Thompson's battle against cancer
Former Rochdale player Joe Thompson has been honoured with the Sir Tom Finney Award by the English Football League.
The 30-year-old midfielder retired from professional football in February having twice recovered from cancer.
After his second return in December 2017, Thompson went on to score the goal that saw his side avoid relegation from League One last season.
"For me to win this award is massive and I know all of my family are proud," Thompson told BBC Radio Manchester.
"To be recognised for contributions on and off the pitch is unbelievable as well as the recognition to win such a prestigious award."
Thompson was first diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma while at Tranmere Rovers in 2013 and given the all-clear in 2014.
After being diagnosed with cancer again in March 2017, he was in complete remission by June of that year and returned for the second half of the 2017-18 season.
The award, which has previously been won by former Southampton striker Rickie Lambert and ex-Bolton forward Kevin Davies among others, is presented to a player who has had an outstanding career and contributed an exceptional amount to the EFL.
Following his retirement, Thompson said he would pursue a career in motivational speaking, mentoring and the media.
"There's things within football that I have achieved that are brilliant and I would have loved to have achieved more," Thompson added.
"But when you get the whole picture, I'd rather be known as a good person than a good footballer."

Birmingham City deducted nine points for EFL profitability and sustainability rule breaches
Birmingham City are in their eighth consecutive season in the Championship
Birmingham City have been deducted nine points by the English Football League for breaching profitability and sustainability rules.
The sanction sees Blues drop from 13th to 18th in the Championship, five points above the relegation zone with eight games to play.
The EFL said Blues incurred losses of nearly £48.8m between 2015 and 2018.
That is almost £10m more than the accepted losses of £39m over a three-year period.
Both Birmingham City and the EFL have 14 days to appeal against the decision of an Independent Disciplinary Commission, which considered the matter on Monday.
It is understood that there will be no further financial penalties for the club, nor would they be under a future transfer embargo relating to this issue.
They are the first club to be deducted points since the EFL introduced its new profitability and sustainability regulations at the start of the 2016-17 season.
In January, Birmingham revealed a £37.5m loss in the 12 months to the end of June 2018, largely a result of their wage bill rising from £22m to almost £38m after an extensive recruitment drive in the summer of 2017.
In July 2018, they were put under a transfer embargo, which was lifted before Championship clubs were warned at a meeting in September of potential penalties - as high as 21 points - for breaches of spending regulations.
Blues had, by then, been given permission to sign five more loan players in August, but they were allowed only one signing in January.
