Matthew Upson’s take on last night’s victory over Shrewsbury Town was that it would have been better for the FA Cup for Liverpool to lose and for Jurgen Klopp to learn his lesson.
“I think it would’ve been good to see them pay a price for it. I don’t think that would’ve been a bad thing for the FA Cup,” he said.
But Klopp’s decision to rest his entire first-team squad and allow Neil Critchley to manage a young side in the competition worked wonders – and earned us progression to the next round.
Anfield was packed thanks to cheap tickets and the performance on the night was exceptional.
The likes of Curtis Jones, Neco Williams and Harvey Elliott could well become first-team regulars one day.
Upson’s take is utter, utter nonsense – and you can listen to it via Sky’s video below!
"He felt the kids could do the job and they done the job"
Has Jurgen Klopp been proved right regarding his #FACup stance?
