Liverpool’s FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury to take place days after Southampton clash. Liverpool take on League One minnows Shrewsbury Town in a FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday, February 4 at 19:45 (5 Januari 2020 02:45 dini hari WIB). The Reds threw away a two-goal lead against the Shrews at Montgomery Waters Meadow in the first leg to set up a replay at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp is expected to snub managing the Reds for the match.
Neil Critchley could hand three more Liverpool youngsters their first-team debut as he leads the under-23s into the FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury.
The young Reds are back in senior action this week as Jurgen Klopp is once again forced to delegate his duties as the result of scheduling issues.
Unlike in December, when their involvement at the Club World Cup required Liverpool to miss the League Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa, Klopp and his players are not obligated to be elsewhere this time around.
But the manager has taken the decision to skip this replay and instead “respect” the winter break, perhaps rightly so given its intention.
This leaves Critchley will a difficult task against a League One side that drew 2-2 with the Reds at New Meadow last time out, though less difficult than the trip to Villa Park.
Isaac Christie-Davies and Herbie Kane, who both featured against Villa, have since left the club on loan, which opens up the prospect of a full debut for Leighton Clarkson.
January signing Joe Hardy is expected to start up front, while Liam Millar should be in the side after his recall from a loan spell with Kilmarnock
Lewis also featured for Klopp’s side in pre-season but, after sitting on the bench for the 2-0 win at MK Dons in the League Cup in September, missed a significant portion of the campaign with a knee injury.
Liverpool FC vs Shrewsburry Town #LIVSHR KO 02:40 WIB. Rabu, 05 Februari 2020 FA Cup (replay) 4th Round. Livestream will available from DAZN Germany.
Kick off in Liverpool’s FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury Town has been delayed until 8pm.
The match was due to kick off at 7.45pm but has been put back a quarter of an hour because some supporters have been delayed due to a crash on the M62.
Reportase: Pemain Shrewsburry sakit hati karena goal semata wayangnya dianulir wasit karena offside. Akibatnya mereka gantung diri pada menit 75. Pemain era millenial memang begitu; “Gak perlu main tangan, bully saja teroos, nanti juga kalo gak kuat bakalan bunuh diri.”
Fakta uniknya, Anfield malah full-house, semua tiket terbeli. Selain diskon harga tiket, bisa jadi penuhnya stadion Anfield dini hari tadi karena ulah FA Cup sendiri, yang akhirnya pemain muda Liverpool malah mendapatkan dukungan yang luar biasa di Anfield. Alih-alih memberikan sanksi, justru ketika FA memblokir tayangan siaran langsung di TV, malah menguntungkan Liverpool di sisi finansial dan moral. 🤣
Pertandingan berikutnya: Tandang ke markas Chelsea. Laga putaran ke-5 akan dimainkan pada 5 Maret 2020 pukul 19:45 WIB.
