The key role three ex-Man Utd players had in halting Liverpool in FA Cup tie

Shrewsbury held Liverpool to a draw in the FA Cup fourth round, forcing a replay at Anfield for the runaway Premier League leaders.

Despite fielding a weakened side against the League One outfit, Jurgen Klopp’s side have only failed to win once in the league and the result was remarkable considering they came back from two goals from behind.

And three ex-Man Utd youngsters played a key role in preventing Liverpool’s smooth progression into the fifth round.

Ro-Shaun Williams, Sean Goss, and Donald Love are all United academy products and featured on Sunday.

Admittedly, right-wing back Love scored a comical own-goal that led to an apparent unassailable for the away side.

But, as sourced by Statman Dave below, Williams and Goss were both crucial in sealing the famous result for Shrewsbury.

There were high hopes for centre-back Williams at Old Trafford as he progressed through the youth systems, captaining his age group sides.

Playing in a back-three, Williams managed to deal with substitutes Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino as Klopp tried to avoid next week’s replay after the tie was levelled.

Goss meanwhile, was the most creative player on the pitch as he made two chances for his Shrewsbury teammates.

Well done, lads!
