Liverpool: 21/20

Draw: 29/10                                       

Shrewsbury: 5/2    


An unpredictable game to say the least, Liverpool’s youngsters came out on top against rivals Everton in the previous round which bodes well. However, Shrewsbury will fancy their chances against what will be Liverpool’s academy, but Critchley’s side have shown before they are capable of rising to the challenge.
