Shrewsbury 2-2 Liverpool
‣ 0-1: Curtis Jones (15′)
‣ 0-2: Donald Love OG (46′)
‣ 1-2: Jason Cummings (65′)
‣ 2-2: Jason Cummings (75′)
The likes of Neco Williams, Yasser Larouci, Curtis Jones, Pedro Chirivella and Harvey Elliott got a start alongside first-team names in Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.
The Reds went 1-0 up in the 15th minute with a fantastic team goal as Minamino picked up the ball in midfield and found Chirivella. The Spaniard spotted Jones making a run in from the left and played the youngster in, with Jones making it look easy with a confident slotted finish.
The Shrews had an excellent opportunity to level things up when Shaun Whalley went clean through, however, Adrian was on hand to deny the long-life Liverpool fan and Shrewsbury striker.
Liverpool had plenty of possession during the first half, but the home side looked dangerous on the break as forwards Whalley and Callum Lang troubled the Reds defence.
The Reds doubled their lead just 28 seconds after the restart as Williams’ cross towards the far post was turned bizarrely into his own net by Shrewsbury defender Donald Love.
Lang went close to pulling one back as he beat the offside trap and got in behind the Liverpool defence. However, Adrian made another important save to deny Sam Ricketts’ side.
With a little over 25 minutes left, Shrewsbury were given a lifeline as Larouci was adjudged to have brought down Josh Laurent in the box, despite replays showing the contact was just outside the box.
Substitute Jason Cummings stepped up to the mark and sent Adrian the wrong way as the home fans sensed a real opportunity for their side to make things difficult for the Reds.
Origi had a powerful strike from the edge of the box saved before Cummings beat Lovren at the other end and finished past Adrian with a low effort, much to the bemusement of Klopp on the touchline.
The two nearly linked up in added time as Firmino found Salah in the box, however, the Egyptian was unable to keep his header down as the Reds were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw.
The two sides will face each other in a replay at Anfield, with the date set to be confirmed imminently. It’s likely the replay will be set for either February 3rd or February 4th.
Liverpool: Adrian, Williams, Lovren, Matip, Larouci, Fabinho, Jones, Chirivella, Elliott, Origi, Minamino.
