Liverpool and Plymouth play the replay of the third round of the FA Cup at the stadium Plymouth. There are still many questions about how Klopp will play, and that makes it difficult to place a good bet for this match.
Plymouth Argyle: In good shape
Plymouth Argyle is not a name that many opponents frightening, but it’s still a pretty big club. Although only Plymouth in the League Two play, the stadium does have a capacity of up to 19,500 spectators. This surpasses the most clubs in the Premier League already. In addition, Plymouth nicely second in League Two and has only four points less than leader Doncaster Rovers, but has played a game less.
Last weekend Plymouth scored four times in the home game against Stevenage, therefore making it quite some confidence has tanked. Plymouth showed to have resilience, as the team was already after two minutes at a 0-1 disadvantage. Which was then transposed to a 2-1 first half lead, then Plymouth on the stroke of half made the 2-2. Afterwards Plymouth went into the second half of a 4-2 victory, whose last goal came only in the last minute.
Plymouth is strong in the private Home Park. It lost only two of his last thirteen home matches in League Two and took the remaining eleven games at least once to score every time. In nine games even made it two goals or more. It indicates that Plymouth on its own level is a dangerous team, especially when playing at home. Liverpool is forewarned.
Probable lineup Plymouth Argyle
McCormick, Miller, Songo’o, Bradley, Purrington, Fox, Garita, Carey, Threlkeld, Jervis, Slew
Liverpool: Question marks over the drafting
Jürgen Klopp is still shrouded in mystery about his possible team against Plymouth. In the first game ever he suggested still the youngest team in the history of The Reds, but before that he is paying the price. Liverpool managed to take a stand in that game and was hardly dangerous at Plymouth. After that match, Klopp also admitted that Plymouth had earned the return.
Last Sunday played Liverpool have the away game against archrival Manchester United. At Old Trafford was the 1-1, where Liverpool still came ahead through a penalty from James Milner unused. Liverpool dipped a header 84 minutes into mourning, but in Liverpool they will have to admit that the draw seen the game image was a fair result. Liverpool mostly struggled with the pressing and play long balls United when Fellaini was introduced, because of its headpower.
At the end of the game, the team made a tired impression, and since Liverpool this weekend against Swansea and a few days later, the return of the semifinals of the League Cup – where Liverpool must make a good 1-0 – play appears it to be obvious that Klopp will rotate again. Or is he going to ask the same team exactly, is unclear. Obviously Klopp can argue that the youth has made it this far, and that the youth should fix it. On the other hand, does not have any Liverpool European obligations, so the FA Cup can be considered as a major tournament. Generally Klopp attaches great importance to cups.
Probable lineup Liverpool
Karius, Alexander Arnold, Lucas Gomez Moreno, Grujic, Stewart, Ejaria, Ojo, Sturridge, Woodburn
