MK Dons manager Tisdale: All my players want to face Liverpool!

MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale has admitted he's finding it hard to pick his team to face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup third-round on Wednesday.

Tisdale says every one of his players are desperate to face the European champions.

"The biggest pressure for me is the team selection," Tisdale said.

"It's personal because that's how I manage. I love all the boys because they're like my second family. I want them all to do really well but I have to pick a team.

"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."
