Plymouth v Liverpool: Pilgrims hoping to cause the shock of the Cup

| 18.01.2017

Plymouth Argyle already produced one heroic performance to hold Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Anfield in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round, but can the Pilgrims cause another surprise in the Replay?

A draw was the last thing Jurgen Klopp needed, with his side potentially playing five games between now and the end of the month.

And that includes a semi-final EFL Cup clash with Southampton, plus a title showdown with Chelsea.

All this means Klopp will be desperate to get the job done at Home Park inside 90 minutes, and avoid extra-time. Especially with a Saturday lunch-time kick-off against Swansea this weekend.

But the longer the game remains in the balance, then the longer Plymouth might fancy themselves.

At 17/2 for a home win, and 3/10 for an away success, the odds reflect the chasm between Argyle and their Premier League visitors.

Another draw can be backed at 17/4 in front of a packed home crowd.

The Reds haven’t won any of their last four games, and with the hosts scoring 11 goals in their last quartet at home, Klopp’s defence should be prepared.

But going on the basis that the German coach wants to avoid all risks here, better value lies in Liverpool/Liverpool on the Half-Time/Full-Time at 10/11.

And the Anfield outfit are 21/10 on the -2 handicap.

If you fancy this to go beyond the 90, we’ve got you covered.

Liverpool are 9/1 to cause Devonshire heartache in extra-time, while the hosts are 33/1 to send the Prem giants crashing out in the additional half-hour.

Meanwhile each side are 16/1 to snatch a dramatic shoot-out success.

This is a fixture Klopp really could do without – and he knows victory would only add to his fixture traffic jam – but the hosts have nothing to lose and could be fantastic value for a famous Emirates FA Cup upset.
