Another chance. Firmino crosses for Salah, but his header flashes just wide of the far post.

89' 

Almost a winner for the Reds. Williams blocks on the line from Jones after Firmino had flicked it across the face of goal.

87' 

Desperate defending from Liverpool! A cross from the right from Love wreaks havoc in the box. It seems to hit Fabinho's arm before the ref awards the visitors a free kick. Let off for the PL leaders.

STAT: The Shrews have lost just one of their last 17 home FA Cup games, winning 10 of them. But its going to take something special to make that one loss in 18 from here!

Got to 'love' those random stats...

That's a massive shame for the hosts and for Love. He was under no real pressure. He just got his lines all wrong.

Klopp in the cup: The German is taking charge of his 12th Liverpool match in the FA Cup. He has won four and lost four of the previous 11.

40' 

Neat approach play from the Premier League leaders, but Minamino can't provide the finish with a wayward strike. Shrewsbury retort but Whalley drags wide with an angled strike after a Liverpool mix-up at the bag had left him in plenty of space to surge into the area.

Klopp greeted that goal with muted applause. He is clearly respecting the game and the opponent, but clearly expects his men to do the business. So far, so good for the German.

Minamino dips his head towards a whipped right-wing delivery but can't get the touch to guide any sort of attempt on target.

12' 

Oliver Norburn goes down and needs some treatment. He's grimacing as he gingerly moves towards the touchline, but should be fine to continue after a dab of the old magic sponge.

10' 

STAT: Liverpool have won just one of their last five FA Cup away fixtures.

8' 

The first real effort of note sees Origi drill a 22-yard attempt wide of the far post after some lively link play from Minamino.

Liverpool are still trying to settle down here. The Shrews are playing with a high tempo and looking to spring forward and catch the visitors' high-line at every opportunity they can.

4' 

STAT: Shrewsbury's only win in their last seven outings in all competitions was their FA Cup second-round replay triumph over Bristol City. However, four of those matches were drawn.

2' 

There are 59 places between the Premier League leaders and the Shrews. It's a much-changed Reds team, but there's still plenty of quality in there. Can the hosts take advantage of any unfamiliarity in the visiting line-up?

Merseyside-born Shaun Whalley: "All my family are Liverpool fans. My mates are season-ticket holders and I was at the Champions League final in Istanbul in 2005.This is brilliant for me, especially having got to the age of 32 and thinking you're never going to play against them."

Daniel Udoh will be hoping to make an impact from the bench for the Shrews: "From Hoddesdon Town six years ago to playing Liverpool now, I just thank God for everything. There's always something that drives you on in life. I'm just lucky it's football which does it for me. I don't call it a job. You don't class this as work."

16.42 

Pedro Chirivella: “I think it’s the biggest game of the season for them or even of their lives. Liverpool coming to Shrewsbury to play, it will be a full stadium. We have to be ready for a hard game and I think we’ll be ready for that. It will be a tricky one. I think we have to approach it the same way we always do – try to win and play good football. I think we’re going to be ready for that.”

Klopp: "We are taking it one game at a time and the next game is Shrewsbury. We will have a team with fresh legs and we have players coming back from injury so it makes sense to play them, because they are pretty good, and we want to go through to the next round. It's a tough place to go, it always is in cup competitions."

Jurgen Klopp

Shrewsbury Town manager Sam Ricketts: "The problem is, whereas some teams have two or three ways of hurting you, Liverpool have five or six. You have to respect all of them. Nullify them best we can and try to focus on us a little bit and what we do. Our way of playing won't change for this game from any other."
