FA Cup: Plymouth vs Liverpool preview

League Two side Plymouth will try to produce the biggest upset in the FA Cup this season when they host Liverpool at Home Park on Wednesday. On January 8 Plymouth recorded a 0-0 draw at Anfield road, earning themselves a replay that should boost the club's budget and hoping to obtain even more with the help of their supporters.

Plymouth are fighting for promotion in League Two, they are in second place at the moment and the top three teams in the league will get promoted to League One. They are unbeaten in the last four home matches, with three wins recorded in the process, while last week they secured a 4-2 victory over Stevenage. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home matches and they will be hoping to score against Liverpool as well.

Liverpool are without a victory in their last four matches in all competitions, they haven't gone through such a poor run since April 2016. Last weekend they nearly got a 1-0 victory at Manchester United but Zlatan Ibrahimovic denied them with a late goal. Jurgen Klopp chose to field a very young starting line-up in the first match against Plymouth and he will most likely do the same thing again.

Probable line-ups:

Plymouth: McCormick - Miller, Songo'o, Bradley, Purrington - Fox - Garita, Carey, Threlkeld, Jervis - Slew

Liverpool: Karius - Alexander-Arnold, Leiva, Gomez, Moreno - Grujic, Stewart, Ejaria - Ojo, Sturridge, Woodburn

My prediction: Liverpool to win 3-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Plymouth win - 11.00
Draw - 6.00
Liverpool win - 1.30

    It was important for Plymouth to reach that replay because like Johnny mentioned above it would boost club's budget, from other point of view it is maybe more important for them what happens in their league than in the FA Cup...but of course they would throw anything against mighty Liverpool side.
    From the probable line-ups Johnny posted above there's too much changes in the Liverpool side and maybe the upset is possible, 2-1 to Plymouth!
