However, Cummings came off the bench on the hour mark and changed the tie.

First, he converted a penalty in the 65th minute after Yasser Larouci had tripped Josh Laurent, although replays appeared to show contact was made outside the box.

And 10 minutes later, Cummings nutmegged Dejan Lovren before confidently slotting past Adrian.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp responded by bringing on Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, however, Shrewsbury held on for their fourth round replay at Anfield.
