Liverpool v Plymouth Betting Predictions | FA Cup BettingPublished January 6, 2017
Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last Monday when they host Plymouth in the FA Cup this Sunday. Sadio Mane’s foolish reflexes cost the Reds as they conceded two penalties in the stalemate with the Black Cats. With no European football to contend with, Jurgen Klopp will want his side to take domestic cup competition seriously. They’re in the League Cup semi-final later in the week.
The German coach was furious with his players and with circumstances after the setback. With Spurs going on to beat Chelsea on Wednesday night, it was an opportunity missed to make ground upon their title rivals. This was reflected in the tetchiness of Klopp’s post-match media activity. Although, to be fair, it seemed as though some reporters delighted in winding him up.
Plymouth are flying high in League Two but they are also recovering from a bad result having lost to Barnet on Monday night. Liverpool will be without Henderson as he’s still reeling from a heel injury that he picked up in the victory over Manchester City on New Year’s Day. Daniel Sturridge will be a doubt after limping off against Sunderland on Monday and Philippe Coutinho’s comeback is still in the pipeline. Klopp has plenty of hungry youngsters.
Liverpool fans could get another glimpse of 17-year-old prodigy Ben Woodburn. The youngster became their youngest ever goalscorer at the age of 17 years and 45 days when he came off the bench to score in an EFL Cup quarter-final match against Leeds United, beating Michael Owen’s record by 98 days in November. 2017 could be a huge year for him.
Liverpool predicted XI: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Ejaria, Stewart, Can, Woodburn, Origi, Firmino
Plymouth predicted XI: McCormick, Threlkeld, Songo’o, Bradley, Purrington, Carey, Fox, Jervis, Tanner, Slew, Garita
