Liverpool’s packed January has become even more rammed as they’ll have to travel to the other end of the country to face League Two Plymouth Argyle in an FA Cup third-round replay.
Despite dominating the match and calling upon their big guns in the second-half, Liverpool failed to overcome their fourth-tier opponents and now face six matches before the end of the month- with two every week.
With Manchester United and Chelsea to also negotiate, Liverpool fans are facing a hectic month and the Reds will look to the replay as a fixture that could have been avoided, especially as Plymouth didn’t offer too much going forward.
Liverpool left the travelling stopper rather untested and their attacking display was very poor, as the Reds lacked the cutting edge to secure a victory. Naturally, the result was not looked upon kindly by fans on social media.
Liverpool had one job, now they have two.

I hope this is not the Mane-less Liverpool :/ Didn't create any chance even with Lallana, Firmino and Sturridge on

Best news of the day? Hearing that Liverpool couldn't find the back of the net against Plymouth despite having had 26 shots ????

Well that result was Liverpool's own doing. Congrats to Plymouth on getting a reply. Jose didn't play kids yesterday did he.

Liverpool: put out an awful team, get an awful result. Fixture backlog serves them right for disrespecting Plymouth and the FA Cup.

It wouldn't even be AS bad for Liverpool if Plymouth actually played well but they didn't, they were atrocious. lol

Honestly, what confidence will it do 'the youngest Liverpool team ever' to come on social media later to nothing but criticism
