Shrewsbury only briefly shock young Liverpool – 17-year-old German celebrates debut

Liverpool FC had many absentees before the FA Cup match against Shrewsbury Town, so the returning Jürgen Klopp sent a young starting eleven onto the field. LFC only had to tremble briefly in the 4:1 win against the third division club.

The training centre was briefly closed during the week due to numerous Corona cases, and the League Cup semi-final at Arsenal on Thursday had to be postponed. LFC only resumed training on Friday. “We built a team out of the players that are left,” Jürgen Klopp, for whom it was the first game after his own quarantine, explained the young line-up against the third division club. Only Konaté, van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho and Jones were part of the regular line-up, the rest were youth players.

Accordingly, the Reds had a hard time at the beginning, against the deep-standing underdogs the usual processes in the offensive were missing. After 20 minutes, Liverpool took their first shot at Shrewsbury’s box, but Marosi scrambled Gordon’s low shot from 17 metres out of the right corner. Konaté (13th) and van Dijk (23rd) also headed over from five yards each.
