Liverpool supporters express their delight following Shrewsbury Town FA Cup draw

Liverpool’s FA Cup destiny was finally confirmed on Tuesday evening following Shrewsbury Town’s   1-0 victory against Bristol City in a third-round replay.

The European champions will make the 70-mile trip to face-off against the League One strugglers on Sunday, January 26 in the fourth round of the world’s oldest cup competition.

Jurgen Klopp has never progressed beyond the fourth round in the FA Cup and will look to put that right on the fifth time of asking.

It will be the first time in 24 years that the two clubs will have come face-to-face with the previous meeting occurring back in February 1996 – Liverpool winning that clash 4-0.

The Shrews currently sit 16th in League One – just nine points above the drop. It is the second consecutive season that the Blues have made it beyond the third round of the competition.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will be expected once again to make wholesale changes to the side that beat Merseyside rivals Everton in the previous round. Curtis Jones scored the only goal of the match as the young Reds defied the odds to overcome Carlo Ancelotti’s full-strength XI.

Klopp’s side will certainly be favourites going into the tie despite the German manager most likely opting to play another vastly inexperienced side. However, following the confirmation of Liverpool’s fourth-round opponents, many supporters took to Twitter to express how they are relishing the trip to Shropshire.
