Eight members of Liverpool's squad for this game were 19 years old and younger. Only three players were over the age of 22. The Reds' starting line-up had a total of 135 senior appearances for the club before this game. Jose Enrique had made 96 of them. At 18 years and 203 days, Sheyi Ojo became the second-ever youngest player to appear for Liverpool in the FA Cup. Raheem Sterling was the youngest. [c/o Ged Rea]
