Liverpool book their place in the 4th round of the FA Cup with a thumping 4-1 win over League One side Shrewsbury Town at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was back in the dugout after missing out on the Chelsea clash due to testing positive for Covid-19. While star full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold missed the clash after testing positive for the virus. Jurgen Klopp made massive changes to the starting line-up. Young academy prospects the likes of Conor Bradley, Elijah Dixon-Bonner, Tyler Morton and Tyler Morton started the game.

Shrewsbury Town showed Anfield by taking the lead in the 27th minute. Daniel Udoh blasted home the first goal of the game from a wicked low ball. The reds weren’t behind for long. Academy prospect Gordon levelled proceeding up at 1-1.

Ryan Bowman goal was ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside call. But Liverpool were awarded a penalty late on in the first half and Fabinho calmly converted from the penalty spot to give Liverpool the lead going into halftime.

The reds looked bright in the second half. Substitute Roberto Firmino converted the 3rd for the reds in the 78th minute. Fabinho added the fourth goal and his second in the game in the third minute of extra time to hand Liverpool the 4-1 win.
