UDOH PUTS SHREWSBURY AHEAD What a moment for Udoh as he smashes a strike past Kelleher from close range.

On this occasion, Udoh is there and he makes no mistake hammering an effort into the top-left corner. The Shrews are in dreamland at Anfield. 0-1.

Gordon produces a composed finish from close range to notch the equalizer. Bradley is played into space down the right flank and he delivers a precise cross for the forward. Gordon takes a good first touch and does not panic under pressure. He places a low strike on his left foot past Marosi into the bottom-left corner with precision. The teenager scores his first senior goal for the club. 1-1.

The Reds complete a first-half comeback as the Brazil international blasts a strike into the bottom-left corner. Fabinho sends Marosi the wrong way and has no issue finding the net to hand the Premier League side the lead. 2-1.

The Brazil international surely sends the Reds through to the fourth round with a delightful backheel from six yards. Shrewsbury fail to clear their lines from Robertson’s free-kick and it allows Fabinho to send Bradley down the right flank. He cuts the ball back for Konate to fire at goal. The defender scuffs his effort towards Firmino, who ensures it finds the back of the net with a great finish with the back of his right heel. 3-1.

The Reds end the game with a flourish as Fabinho scores on the rebound. Tsimikas whips a dangerous free-kick into the box from the right flank that Fabinho attacks.
