Eclipse.- 19 – Liverpool have not lost any of their last 19 FA Cup games against teams from the fourth tier or lower (W15 D4). Eclipse. – OptaJoe[/epq-quote]Plymouth forced a home replay in the tie after the Sky Bet League Two side held the English Premier League outfits goalless at Anfield in the previous meeting.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp played a somewhat youthful squad in the first encounter and the German coach has decided to mix it up again on the away replay.
Klopp has made nine adjustments to his team that drew 1-1 at Manchester United in the league, as only full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and striker Divock Origi retained their places.
Attackers Coutinho and Sturridge who both started on the bench at Old Trafford come into the starting XI today, with Ben Woodburn, Joe Gomez and Lucas Leiva, who captains the team today, all starting as well.
Loris Karius is back in goal again, while Kevin Stewart and Ovie Ejaria also start the game.
Academy players Paulo Alves, Jordan Williams and Harry Wilson are among the players on the bench.
According to Opta, Liverpool have not lost any of their last 19 FA Cup games against fourth tier or lower team and have won 15 of those previous 19.
Plymouth manager Derek Adams said on BBC Radio 5 live: “It’s going to be a fantastic occasion for us and we did really well in the first game to take them to Home Park.
“We played well, defended well and we will have to again today. Liverpool have international class players but at times in the game we will have to go at them.
“We have had a league match in between but we performed well against Stevenage. It is a very big game for the football club, it is like a soap opera here, which we have not seen for a while.
“Tonight our supporters will be very vocal, it will be a tremendous atmosphere and we are all looking forward to it.”
