FA Cup: Liverpool beats lowly Exeter, Spurs oust Leicester

"We all dug in and it was good".

"The great thing about him is when he gets in those positions he gets his head up and he has a look", Lawrenson told Liverpool's TV channel at halftime.

"We should do this more often", smiled a relieved Jurgen Klopp after watching his young side beat Exeter City in the FA Cup at the second time of asking.

"We have to think about how we create chances". I don't know who you would compare him with but we had no problem in this position. "That's not a situation we can think about".

Australia worldwide Brad Smith was anxious his time at Liverpool had come to an end before signing a new contract with the club in November.

"I want a keeper who helps, a keeper who comes out and tries everything", Klopp said last month of a player who also kept more Premier League clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in 2015.

As for Exeter, they celebrated the draw like a victory and primarily the trip to Merseyside is all about the experience for their players and a significant boost to the Grecians' coffers.

The defender took part in the initial meeting between the two teams on January 8, scoring the goal which secured a replay for a young Reds side who had endured a scrappy battle with their League Two opponents. The manager has reprimanded the striker for his poor work rate during games, and admitted that at the moment the former Aston Villa forward does not fit into his style of play.

Sheyi Ojo, with a brilliant individual effort, and Joao Carlos Teixeira scored their first senior goals on their Anfield debuts after Joe Allen, one of three experienced players in the side, had put them ahead in the first half. We can only offer things and first we need to offer education and training and the possibility to work together with the best coaches and the best players we have. "Hopefully we can play well and qualify for the next round".

"As a club you can not make younger players happy", said Klopp.
