FA CUP Match Preview : Plymouth vs Liverpool


Liverpool are winless in four matches in all competitions for the first time since April 2016. Jurgen Klopp would rather do without this match and is expected to make wholesale changes to the side that battled to a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

Plymouth have only lost one of their last nine matches in all competitions, while they have only lost three home games all season. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home matches.

The Green Army should fancy their chances of causing another upset here, especially with Klopp set to make wholesale changes to his usual starting XI. It’s going to be a tough game for Liverpool and a tight match should be expected at Home Park. Place your bet on NaijaBet.com
