Liverpool to face Plymouth Argyle in FA Cup third round

Jurgen Klopp will surely have to consider fielding a very weakened team, due to a relentless January of fixtures across three different competitions.

In total, the Reds could have eight matches in the first month of 2017, including Premier League clashes with Man United and Chelsea, and a two-legged League Cup semi-final against Southampton.


The match could be the ideal opportunity for the likes of Sheyi Ojo, Joe Gomez, Trent Arnold and Ovie Ejaria to get some playing time in the first-team.

We have seen in the past that taking lower league teams for granted can backfire spectacularly, however, and a shock result needs to be avoided.

It has been a decade since the Reds last won world football’s most famous domestic cup competition, thanks largely to Steven Gerrard‘s heroics in the final against West Ham.

Liverpool are due an eighth FA Cup title – here’s to 2017 being our year.
