Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Predictions


Liverpool are hit by injuries, illness and absences but they are tipped to be too good for League One Shrewsbury. The Reds made hard work of getting past the Shrews two years ago, but this one can be more comfortable.

Head to Head


Liverpool defeated Shrewsbury 1-0 in the FA Cup at Anfield two years ago. The Reds needed a 75th minute own goal to win the tie.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool lost a two-goal lead when drawing with Chelsea 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League last Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp was absent after a positive coronavirus test, but he had been on the sidelines when his side disappointed in a 1-0 loss at Leicester on December 28.

Liverpool Team News


Liverpool are likely to field a youthful side with a number of injuries and absentees.

Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane are on African Cup of Nations duty, while Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip have had positive Covid tests along with manager Jurgen Klopp and assistant Pep Lijnders.

Thiago, Harvey Elliott, Nat Phillips, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi are injured, but Andy Robertson is available after suspension.

Shrewsbury Form


Shrewsbury moved up to 14th place in League One when winning 1-0 against Sheffield Wednesday last Sunday.

It was a third win in four matches for Steve Cotterill's side, who are unbeaten in the last four games following victories over Cheltenham 3-1 and Fleetwood 3-0 and a 0-0 draw with Accrington.

Shrewsbury Team News


Shrewsbury have just one doubt with forward Daniel Udoh picking up an injury last week. 

His place is likely to go to Tom Bloxham, who is back after serving a three-game ban.
