Jurgen Klopp has already revealed intentions to play the kids in the FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury, and Reds supporters are fully expecting to be knocked out by the League One side. The first-team squad will be having that break, Klopp vowed, so he'll be playing the kids.
Following the match Klopp insisted himself and his side would be adhering to the winter break, meaning youth stars and Under23 manager Neil Critchley would be taking charge of the fixture. "We did a great job, great result and we get to the next stage".
United's all-time top scorer enjoyed a glittering 13-year career at Old Trafford before returning to Everton in 2017.
No team in the Premier League has managed to score two goals in one game against Liverpool this season and the Reds could have conceded more, with Shrewsbury - which had won just one of its previous seven games in all competitions - having Liverpool rattled at times. However, the Nigerian struggled in his second year and has since not played at the highest level, which would be a cause of concern.
"It is a dream come true against the best team in the world", Cummings said. If Liverpool and Manchester City will continue to win their upcoming matches, then Liverpool will win the league by 4th April.
"It would be nice to give Ole the time to do that as we know he loves the club, he understands how it works and what it takes to succeed there". If I was a player in that dressing room I'd want to actually win the FA Cup.
"[It was] like a big fight", he said.
Elsewhere, Liverpool look to be making up for their poor league form with an 8-1 win at home to Blackburn Rovers, striker Rinsola Babajide scoring four, while their Merseyside neighbours also progressed with a 1-0 victory over Championship side London Bees.
A muddy and bobbly Prenton Park pitch looked the flawless stage for an old-fashioned Cup shock but it was Tranmere who sank as Harry Maguire's thunderbolt signalled a United onslaught that saw Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial all score before the interval. But, for that Liverpool have to beat Man City at Etihad stadium.
