Liverpool are using their U23 side against third-tier Shrewsbury, Newcastle United travel to third-tier Oxford United, Cardiff host Reading and Birmingham host Coventry and Derby County host Northampton Town.

The winner of Liverpool against Shrewsbury will travel to Chelsea in the fifth round, as Neil Critchley will manage these kids once again as they knocked out Everton in the last round with Klopp as the coach. Why can’t they beat Shrewsbury? 19-year-old Curtis Jones captains Liverpool, while the likes of Harvey Elliott, Sepp van den Berg and Ki-Jana Hoever all start. The average age of the Liverpool team is 19 years and 102 days.

Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts has complained about Klopp’s decision to give his first team a break and that it has cost the third-tier club around $650,000 but this is a great chance for the Shrews to reach the last 16 of the competition and get a payday at Chelsea in round five.
