Liverpool field youngest ever side and play most boring game of the season


For the fourth of their past five home FA Cup games, Liverpool played out a dull 0-0 draw.

Jurgen Klopp shuffled the pack and played the youngest starting 11 of any Liverpool side in history - with an average age of 21 years and 296 days.

The eccentric German was accused of both disrespecting the competition and praised for giving some unknown youngsters a chance to impress.

The League Two side were solid in defence and ground out an insipid draw that will see the Reds travel to Plymouth for a replay.

And, naturally, spectators posted their hot-takes on Twitter.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said he had no regrets about his selection choices and was looking forward to his trip to the south coast.

He said: "Now we go to Plymouth for the first time in my life, so it's all good."

All good indeed, Jurgen.
