Plymouth hold Liverpool
League 2 side Plymouth Argyle were probably just hoping to avoid a royal thrashing when they travelled 300 miles to Liverpool today.
The south-coast club travelled to Anfield today for the 3rd round of the FA Cup, and they were handed a boost when they saw the Liverpool team sheet.
Jurgen Klopp named the youngest side in the club’s history, with an average age of just 21, and it ended up costing them, as Plymouth earned a replay.
It means Liverpool’s title bid will now be interrupted by a 600mile round trip to Plymouth for the replay, and it’s fair to say they need it like a hole in the head.
Klopp couldn’t hide his lack of enthusiasm, as he let out a sarcastic ‘Yipee’ at his post-match press conference.
