Fulham conceding the most goals in the Premier League (47 in 19 games). Surely a FA Cup game against Oldham Athletic presents an opportunity for the first choice back line to develop a better understanding. If anything playing lower league opposition in cup matches is better than being on the training ground.

I would think getting injuries would be the main worry.

Klopp just dosen't win trophies, his record overall isn't great, likeable man, decent manager, but his sides just don't win trophies...

Massive season for him. I hope he does win one this season, but if not, the daggers will be out.

Often crash out of domestic cup competitions in the early stages, never got beyond Round 4 of the FA Cup.

Maybe if Klopp took cup competitions seriously, Liverpool would fare better when it comes to the crunch matches, i.e. recent Europa and Champions League Final appearances. Winning breeds winning whether it's the Champions League or Merseyside Senior Cup, can't emulate pressure cooker knockout football on the training ground.

A big night for Burton Albion in the League Cup Semi-Final, a 1st leg visit to the Ethiad Stadium.

As of yesterday, you could get odds on Burton Albion winning as much as 75/1. A massive ask, but Nigel Clough has cup run history with Burton and more recently with Sheffield United having reached the League Cup and FA Cup Semi-Finals.

Even if Burton Albion come back to with a 1 goal deficit, they are no means out of it. A compact, packed out Pirelli Stadium for the 2nd leg presents a unique challlenge in itself for Manchester City.

Feel sorry for the Burton fans who got stuck on the M6 and missed the game, apparently took 28 coaches and only one made it.
