Liverpool break club record twice in the same season

Liverpool named their youngest ever XI in all competitions in last night’s FA Cup replay victory over Shrewsbury Town.

This youthful Reds line up still had enough in them to come away with a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury, despite the absence of the first-team – including manager Jurgen Klopp – who were all away on their winter break.

Remarkably as well, this is the second time this season that Liverpool have broken their club record for fielding their youngest ever XI.

According to Opta in the tweet below, the age of last night’s team was 100 days younger than the one that set the previous record in the Carabao Cup game against Aston Villa earlier this season…

Liverpool’s youngsters may have been thrashed by Villa on that occasion, but last night’s win keeps dreams of a potential treble alive.

It also shows that LFC fans can surely expect a bright future from some of those coming up through the club’s academy.

19-year-old midfielder Curtis Jones has been particularly impressive in his outings for the Liverpool first-team this season.
