95'
FT: Shrewsbury 2-2 Liverpool. Klopp'smen will have to play the replay in Anfield after a heroic second half sees Shrewsbury make a heroic comeback, even after own goal. Jones gave the visitors a half-time lead and Love scored a comical own goal 27 seconds into the second half. Ricketts' men did not give up, though, and substitute Cummings scored twice to set up a replay at Anfield early next month. His first came via a controversially-awarded penalty after Larouci fouled Laurent just outside the
90'
NEARLY A WINNER! Lovren has time to set himself for the cross. The wicked delivery is well defended as Shrewsbury survive this latest onslaught on their goal. The hosts get the ball forward and Laurent tries to catch out Adrian, but the Liverpool keeper makes the save at his near post.
90'
SALAH SHOULD SCORE! Firmino's cross is met by the head of Salah five yards out, but he cannot steer it on goal. That was Liverpool's big chance to snatch the win.
90'
NERVY MOMENT! Fabinho plays the ball in behind and Firmino gets a shot in from a tight angle. O'Leary makes the save but it breaks loose towards Jones, only for Williams to make a vital block in front of goal. Talk about putting your body on the line!
88'
Liverpool are seriously holding on now. The visitors have been poor in an attacking sense today and can have no complaints if this one finishes 2-2.
85'
With Salah already on, Klopp has now turned to Firmino. Minamino is the player to make way.
85'
Whalley has been heavily involved today and is replaced by Udoh with five minutes to go.
82'
With less than 10 minutes to go, it is Shrewsbury who are looking the more likely side to snatch victory. There is not extra-time today, remember - the game will instead go to a replay early next month. Firmino is about to come on for Liverpool.
79'
Salah comes on for Matip as Klopp changes formation. He really does not want this to go to a replay.
75'
SHREWSBURY 2-2 LIVERPOOL!!! CUMMINGS SCORES A SECOND! O'Leary, having made that impressive save to deny Origi, launches the ball long and Cummings gets the better of Lovren. The substitute striker keeps his cool with just Adrian to beat by tucking the ball into the bottom-left corner.
75'
GOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!! SHREWSBURY LEVEL UP!!!!!!
74'
Liverpool have not managed a single shot on target in this second half, their second goal coming via a Shrewsbury player. The hosts have, strangely, been the better side in an attacking sense.Oxlade-Chamberlain's drilled free-kick deflects behind.
71'
Elliott, who has not been all that involved in the match, is replaced by Oxlade-Chamberlain with around 20 minutes to go
69'
Love positions himself out wide on the right and is eventually picked out. His cross is cut out by Lovren but the pressure from Shrewsbury is pretty relentless.
65'
GAME ON AT NEW MEADOW! Cummings sends Adrian the wrong way from the penalty spot and Liverpool now have something to think about!
65'
GOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!
64'
Larouci is cautioned for his challenge on Laurent. Further punishment could follow if Cummings converts the penalty.
64'
PENALTY TO SHREWSBURY! Laurent charges towards the box and is fouled by Larouci. The contact took place outside the area but the referee points to the penalty spot. There is no VAR in operation today, remember...
62'
WIDE! Liverpool have a two-goal lead and yet it is Shrewsbury who have been creating the better chances today. Laurent picks up a loose pass from Matip but screws his shot wide from the edge of the area.
60'
That attempt from Lang was his last involvement in the game. Cummings is on in his place.
59'
ADRIAN MAKES ANOTHER SAVE! Liverpool keeper Adrian has been superb today. Lang bursts in down the right but meets his match in Adrian, who tips the low shot just wide of the post
57'
Liverpool are in a good position, knowing they do not need to force the issue with this two-goal lead. Laurent is starting the Shrewsbury press, but the visitors are coping with it fairly well at the moment.
53'
Better from Shrewsbury! Goss picks out Laurent, who does not make the connection he would have wanted with his shot. He claims it took a deflection on its way behind but the officials disagree.
48'
The hosts have now made things even more difficult for themselves, and it looks like Liverpool will cruise through despite their much-changed line-up.
47'
It is a nightmare start to the second half for Shrewsbury. Twenty-eight seconds after the restart, Love inadvertently directs a right-sided cross into the bottom corner of his own net. He was under no pressure whatsoever - what a a horror moment!
46'
SHREWSBURY SCORE AN OWN GOAL!
46'
Back underway!
45'
HT: Shrewsbury 0-1 Liverpool. Klopp will have mixed feelings at the interval. Liverpool started the game brightly and gave themselves a platform to build on with their 15th-minute goal, but the German coach will know that it could easily have been 1-1 at half-time.
45'
DANGER! Fabinho, well off the pace so far, is guilty of giving away a needless corner late in the half. Larouci misses the set-piece and it drops right in front of goal, but Liverpool clear their lines. The ball soon comes back into the box and Pierre's miscued strike is easily dealt with by Adrian.
44'
Origi is took quick for Ebanks-Landell, who makes the foul. The wide free-kick is sent towards the penalty spot, where Matip is waiting to guide a header well wide of the target.

41'
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR WHALLEY! Minamino gets his shot all wrong at one end and a minute later Whalley is again in on goal with just Adrian to beat. He strikes the ball into the ground and wide of the far post.
39'
Lang escapes Fabinho and has Whalley for support. The Shrewsbury attacker tries to do too much as he jinks his way past one but is crowded out by two other Liverpool players.
36'
Liverpool's back-up keeper Adrian has been very impressive in this first half. He made a big save to deny Whalley, has confidently passed out from the back and has made a good call in racing off his line a few times.
32'
Liverpool turn over possession but Elliott is unable to do much with the ball as he charges towards the opposition box. Fabinho is then guilty of miscontrolling the ball, with the midfielder - somewhat understandably - looking a tad rusty today.
30'
HANDBALL?! Liverpool have had 78 per cent of possession in the opening half an hour of the tie. Minamino goes wide to Williams and the cross into the middle is cut out by Pierre for a corner. It hit the defender on the arm, but there is no VAR in operation today.
26'
Norburn picked up a knee injury early on and has been unable to shake it off. Experienced midfielder Edwards, who started at Fleetwood last week, comes on in his place.
24'
HUGE CHANCE FOR SHREWSBURY! Whalley is given something to chase down but Adrian races off his line to get to the ball first. The Liverpool keeper is required again 30 seconds later as he keeps out the same player's shot with his legs from a one-on-one position.
19'
Lang tries to escape down the inside right channel but Jones matches him stride for stride and claims possession.
15'
JONES OPENS THE SCORING! He was Liverpool's match-winning hero in the last round and Jones has a goal early on here. The midfielder takes Chirivella's pass in his stride and makes no mistake in finishing past O'Leary.
15'
GOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!
13'
Williams' delivery is just out of the reach of Minamino. He was at full stretch but could not get his head on the end of the right-sided cross.
10'
SHOT! The home team are very much playing with five players across midfield. They are happy to sit back and soak up the pressure, but they are inviting a little too much pressure on themselves as Origi sends a shot wide from 20 yards.
8'
Norburn fouls Minamino and the recently-acquired Liverpool star is straight back to his feet. He seems to be playing the role of Firmino today. The visitors have settled well and are patiently probing away.
4'
Liverpool put together some purposeful early pressure, Minamino twice dispossessed while prowling in the box and Chirivella surging forward with intent.
2'
Whalley makes a good run and is picked out well by Golbourne. For a second it looks as though he might just be in … but the flag is up.
1'
And we're off!
Prev.
As for Sam Ricketts, his wing-back Scott Golbourne has passed a late fitness test to make it into the XI and Blackburn loanee Sam Hart is on the bench ahead of a potential debut.
Prev.
Just the 11 changes for Mr Klopp, then, although that rather underplays the strength of a side that contains two seasoned centre-halves, one thrilling new arrival, perhaps the Premier League’s best all-round midfielder, and at least two spectacularly promising teenage prodigies... Liverpool really are out of this world at the moment.
Prev.
Liverpool starting XI: Adrian, Williams, Matip, Lovren, Larouci, Fabinho, Chirivella, Jones, Minamino, Elliott, Origi. Subs: Kelleher, Keita, Firmino, Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hoever, Alexander-Arnold.
Prev.
Shrewsbury starting XI: O’Leary; Pierre, Ebanks-Landell, Williams, Love; Norburn, Laurent, Golbourne, Whalley; Goss, Lang. Subs: Murphy, Edwards, Beckles, Walker, Udoh, Cummings, Hart.
