Liverpool's youngest-ever team keep FA Cup run going

Liverpool's youngest-ever team keep FA Cup run going”

The FA Cup fourth round replays are here as two Premier League teams are in action on Tuesday with the youngest Liverpool starting XI in history hosting Shrewsbury the headline act as Jurgen Klopp made a decision to give himself and his first team time off during the winter break.

But that did not tell the whole story as the youngsters enjoyed 58 percent possession, had 12 shots to their opponents' three and also won 14 corners to emphasise their territorial dominance.

Victory set up a fifth-round tie at Chelsea when Jurgen Klopp and his first-team players will be available again.

Critchley said Milner, who has been sidelined with injury, was delighted with the performance against the third-tier side. Anything the first team can get with VAR, the juniors can master, the cynics observed.

"From the first whistle, the maturity the boys showed to play that game was remarkable". I was really impressed with how we stood up to the physical side of the game.

"We don't want this to be a defining moment of their careers". It gives them the belief and confidence in the work they do on a daily basis that people don't see until a night like this.

"As I said it was an awesome feeling to captain the boys, but I think the most important thing is that we came away with a win and now we can have our break and look forward to the next round against Chelsea". I was like, 'I think the answer is yes to that one.

Asked via iFollow Shrewsbury to sum up the feeling in the dressing room, 34-year-old Edwards replied: "Awful". What do you think?

Williams was man of the match at Anfield and said: 'He (Alexander-Arnold) is obviously one of the best right-backs in the world right now, so every day I'm training with him I'm picking up little things each day and trying to bring it into my own game.

With Udoh and Jones having exchanged chances, Sam Ricketts introduced Jason Cummings - the Shrewsbury hero of the first leg - with 16 minutes remaining.

"He is just a quality footballer with natural ability and a good arrogance. But we were far too passive in the game generally".

"The players are down at the minute because we knew if we got anywhere near our levels we could impose ourselves".
