Cummings double stuns Liverpool as Shrews fight back to claim shock replay

26 January 2020 07:12
Liverpool once again approached the FA Cup on economy setting, only to find Shrewsbury much more full of fight than Everton in the last round. The Premier League leaders should never have looked back after being gifted a 2-0 lead through a bizarre own goal right at the start of the second half, but two-goal Jason Cummings led a stirring Shrewsbury recovery and with more composure in front of goal the League One side might even have won the game.They certainly had the chances in the second half, though Shrewsbury will be happy enough with a replay at Anfield. Liverpool will be far less pleased with an extra game in a week designated for rest, and must now question the wisdom of leaving out so many regular first teamers. Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino were sent on before the end in search of a goal to settle the tie, though Shrewsbury were in no mood to allow that, and in truth a draw was the least they deserved.
