Liverpool Preview – Will the young Reds book their place in round five?

Jurgen Klopp will not be at Anfield for this replay, neither will his first-team squad. U23 manager Neil Critchley, who took charge of Liverpool’s EFL Cup tie at Aston Villa, will be in the Reds dugout for this one.

Liverpool’s youngsters gave a good account of themselves at Villa Park, even though they left with a 5-0 defeat. The experience gained from that cup tie at Aston Villa was priceless for their development, and several of the U23 squad flourished in the first game at New Meadow last month.

Our betting prediction:
Liverpool clean sheet
9/5

(odds taken 1250 GMT, Monday 3 February)

 
Liverpool are unbeaten at home in all competitions this season. In the Premier League, the Merseyside outfit have a 100% record at Anfield. In fact, Klopp’s side have won all of their Premier League fixtures on home soil since a 1-1 draw with Leicester City way back in January 2019. Liverpool are 22 points clear at the top of table and well on the way to a first Premier League title.

Klopp’s boys have bigger fish to fry in terms of the Premier League and UEFA Champions League this season, but they will setup a tasty last 16 tie with Frank Lampard’s Chelsea if they can see off Shrewsbury on Tuesday.

Shrewsbury Town Preview – Can the Shrews cause a huge FA Cup upset at Anfield?

Since coming from two goals down to draw with Klopp’s Liverpool at New Meadow, Shrewsbury Town have lost their last two in EFL League One without scoring a single goal. The Shrews find themselves in 16th place in the third tier at present.

Sam Ricketts’ side have been in poor form over the past couple of months or so, winning just one of ten across all competitions. The Blues have failed to win in league action since picking up a 1-0 victory at Blackpool a few days before Christmas. However, they did beat EFL Championship side Bristol City in the third round of the FA Cup.
