Shrewsbury vs Liverpool
Liverpool are set to face League One outfit Shrewsbury in the 4th round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
The Reds have won the competition seven times throughout their history. But they have not done so since 2006, when they saw off West Ham in the final. Meanwhile, Shrewsbury have never made it past the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Liverpool would see off bitter rivals Everton by one goal to nil in the 3rd round, whilst Shrewsbury beat Bristol City by the same score to earn their tie against Liverpool.
The Merseyside powerhouse head into this game on the back of a hard-fought victory over Wolves in the Premier League on Thursday.

Liverpool injury update
Jurgen Klopp would hold his pre-Shrewsbury press conference on Friday the 24th of January.
During the presser, Klopp gave updates on a number of players, including Sadio Mane.
Mane had to be withdrawn during the first-half of Liverpool’s last clash.
And when speaking about the Senegalese winger on Friday, the Liverpool boss stated that he thought Mane was having a scan at the time of the presser.
“No, I think he is in the scan in this moment. They didn’t call me out of the scan, so, no. [Fingers crossed], yes.” As quoted by Liverpool’s official website.
Klopp then gave updates on Dejan Lovren, Naby Keita, James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri.
And it sounds as though Sunday’s game will come too early for the latter two stars:
“Dejan trained completely normally, until the game it’s a week [back] so should be fine.
“For Shaq and Millie, I think it’s too early. Naby, we will have to see. My information is that he will be part of training today and then we have to see.
“It was not too long, but how he looks and so on. For the boys that didn’t play longer than a half yesterday, today will be a very, very important session and kind of an intense session.
“It’s minus two [days] to the game so there is always intensity. We will see if he can be part of that completely – then he would be an option. If not, then not.” As quoted by Liverpool’s official website.
