Shrewsbury Town hosts Liverpool
Shrewsbury Town hosts Liverpool at the Montgomery Waters Meadow in a match from the 4th round of the FA Cup. Let’s see what’s happening with these two teams in our football prediction tips for today.
Shrewsbury Town are currently playing in the English League One, but performing in average way and being 16th in the standings. In 25 games played in the League One so far, Shrewsbury Town managed to win just 8 of them. That’s far from impressive.
In the FA Cup Shrewsbury Town progressed to the 4th round after a 1-0 win over Bristol City in the previous round. Sam Ricketts’ boys took the win with a very late goal in the 89th minute, scored by Aaron Pierre. Now they will have a totally different beast against them.
Liverpool will be crowned as Premier League champions this season, this is not even debatable at the moment. The Reds are 16 points ahead of Manchester City in the standings and they even have a game in hand. They also have a phenomenal record of 22 wins from 23 games played – that’s pretty insane.
In the FA Cup Liverpool progressed after a 1-0 win over their local rivals Everton. The manager Jurgen Klopp put a very experimental team on the pitch against the Toffees, but despite of this the Reds won. The 18-years old midfielder Curtis Jones scored the winning goal in the second half. It’d be interesting to see what kind of a line-up Klopp will use against Shrewsbury Town on Sunday.
In our football prediction tips we believe that it’d be very important to see what kind of a team Jurgen Klopp will use in this FA Cup game between Shrewsbury Town and Liverpool. If he chooses to focus on other competitions, maybe the hosts would have some chance to cause an upset.
