Liverpool Stats | Plymouth Argyle Stats

Naturally, Liverpool start as 1/6 favourites for the tie at Anfield with League Two side Plymouth as big as 22/1 with some bookmakers. But Liverpool are no strangers to being the victim of a giant-killing in this competition down the years.

With bigger challenges ahead in both the Premier League – including a trip to Old Trafford – as well as the two-legged EFL Cup semi final against Southampton, Jurgen Klopp may choose to make changes to his team.

Striker Daniel Sturridge was injured at Sunderland in Liverpool's last game and there are also doubts over Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and James Milner.

Plymouth's recent signing Jakub Sokolik is Cup-tied having already played for Southend in the competition this season.

Liverpool have lost just twice in all competitions this season – at Burnley and Bournemouth.

Currently second in League Two, Plymouth are just a point behind leaders Doncaster Rovers. Derek Adams' team lost their last game at Barnet 1-0 on January 2. Prior to that they were unbeaten in six with three wins and three draws. They started the season with three defeats but then went on an amazing run of nine wins and a draw in their next 10.

Plymouth have lost each of their last 11 FA Cup meetings against top flight opposition and this will be the first meeting between Liverpool and Plymouth since 1961/1962. The teams were then in the old Division Two and Liverpool won 3-0, following up a 2-1 win at Anfield earlier in the season.

Plymouth's last victory against Liverpool was in 1956 when they won 4-0 though they have never won at Anfield.

Liverpool v Plymouth Match Betting Odds

Liverpool are 1/6 for the win with Betfred while Plymouth are 16/1 through Coral. A draw is 13/2 with SkyBet. While Liverpool will probably field some fringe players for this game, they should still be too strong at home for the Pilgrims. A half time/full time double for the Reds can be backed at 1/2 with Coral. In the both teams to score market, no is 4/7 with yes at 5/4 with Bet365.

Liverpool v Plymouth First Scorer Betting Odds

Despite being an injury doubt, Daniel Sturridge is the 13/5 favourite to open the scoring with Bet365 and is 8/15 to score anytime. Others in the running are Divock Origi at 4/1 and Roberto Firmino at 15/4. Adam Lallana is 11/2.
