The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has been to integrate youth players into the first-team this season and fielded a youthful side in the recent 0-0 draw with Plymouth.
He is expected to do the same as he rests senior players in the cup, meaning the likes of Ovie Ejaria, Ben Woodburn, Sheyi Ojo and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all expected to start.
Wilson looks like the latest youngster to get the promotion to the first-team and will hope to impress if he features against Plymouth.
The Welshman is currently the captain of the Under-23s and is tipped as one of the best emerging stars at Anfield.
