Within 15 minutes of replacing Callum Lang on the hour mark, Cummings converted from the penalty spot and guided a cool finish past Adrian to earn League One side Shrewsbury a replay against the Premier League leader at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to his team and saw it go 2-0 up when Donald Love followed up Curtis Jones's opener with a comical own goal.

Klopp responded to Cummings's brace by calling for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino from the bench, but Liverpool was unable to salvage a victory despite some huge late chances and now has another fixture to add to its busy schedule.
