James Pearce delivers verdict as Liverpool advance in FA Cup

Liverpool began with seven teenage outfield players with their first-team squad currently enjoying the Premier League’s first-ever winter break.

Pearce said that it was “a remarkable achievement” from the runaway Premier League leaders due to the fact that 22 senior players were unavailable.
