Shrewsbury

Last updated: Sun 26 January 2020 17:01
In Brief

Played out a 2:2 draw at Fleetwood. In poor form in the league and a glamour game versus Liverpool will provide a welcome distraction. Josh Vela signs. Max O'Leary cannot play.

Looking Back

Shrewsbury were second-best in the majority of their recent game at Fleetwood, but lead until the hosts scored late on to rescue a point.

The Shrews are having a decent league campaign, but have slowed down lately, having particularly been struggling in front of goal.

Looking Ahead

Former Bolton skipper Josh Vela has signed as a free agent following his release by Hibernian.

Keeper Max O'Leary cannot play under the terms of his loan, so veteran Joe Murphy is set to start between the posts.

Points of Interest

Shrewsbury are currently without a win in their last five league games, which is their longest league winless run since the start of the season.

Liverpool

Last updated: Sun 26 January 2020 17:01
In Brief

Heavy rotation certain, but some experienced players set to feature. With league title pretty much won already could pay more attention on FA Cup. Mane sidelined. Shaqiri and Milner major doubts. Lovren, Lallana and Keita hope to return.

Looking Back

Liverpool made it 40 consecutive Premier League games unbeaten on Thursday (W35 D5) when edging Wolves 2:1 away. This result pretty much makes it almost impossible for Reds to lose title.

In previous round beat Everton 1:0 despite using extremely young and inexperienced group of players.

Looking Ahead

Coach Klopp set to rotate heavily again, but returning from injuries Matip and Fabinho could get starts. Also new signing Minamoto expected to lead attack.

Hero from last round Curtis Jones should start, as well as at least 2-3 other youngsters.

Lovren, Keita and Lallana (sick in midwek) also could feature if passed fit on time, but Mane got seriously injured on Thursday and now ruled out. Milner and Shaqiri serious doubts.
