We’ve been awarded a home tie against fellow Premier League side West Ham United in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup – if we can beat lowly Exeter City in the replay at Anfield on Wednesday 20th January (via BBC).
The game, which is due to be played on the weekend of 30th January / 1st February, is one of just three potential all-Premier League ties. Crystal Palace vs Stoke City and Wycombe/Aston Villa vs Manchester City make up the other two.
We’ve only played West Ham three times in the cup, with the most recent time being the “Gerrard final” of 2006.
The game will offer Klopp and the boys the perfect chance to get revenge for our poor showing in the 2-0 loss at Upton Park on 2nd January.
Elsewhere, Conference side Eastleigh – the lowest ranked side still in the competition – will host Leeds if they can win their replay against Bolton, Man Utd travel to derby, and holders Arsenal have a home tie against Burnley.

Arsenal vs Burnley
Bury or Bradford City vs Hull City
Carlisle or Yeovil vs Everton
Colchester vs Tottenham or Leicester
Crystal Palace vs Stoke City
Derby vs Manchester United
Eastleigh or Bolton vs Leeds United
Exeter City or Liverpool vs West Ham
Huddersfield or Reading vs Walsall
Ipswich or Portsmouth vs Bournemouth
