Shrewsbury Town forward Daniel Udoh taunted Liverpool fans by performing Cristiano Ronaldo’s trademark celebration after giving the visitors a shock lead at Anfield. Shrewsbury fans were sent into raptures as the 25-year-old fired home a low cross, prompting hope of another FA Cup shock. 

The FA Cup third round weekend has already played host to numerous shocks and upsets, as fans have become accustomed to over the years. 

On Saturday, Cambridge United pipped Newcastle United at St James’ Park thanks to Joe Ironside’s second-half strike. 

Meanwhile, National League North side Kidderminster Harriers triumphed over Championship Reading at Aggborough to reach the fourth round for the first time in 35 years. 

Shrewsbury looked to be getting in on the act on Sunday, taking a shock lead over Liverpool thanks to a neat finish by Udoh.

And the 25-year-old took his opportunity to twist the knife into the Liverpool fans, performing Ronaldo’s trademark goal celebration. 

Manchester United fans have embraced the Portuguese’s return to Old Trafford this season, with a loud chorus invariably ringing out when the forward finds the net. 

Udoh’s nod to the key player of Liverpool’s bitter rivals will have frustrated the home fans, but they did not take long to respond. 

Just seven minutes later, 17-year-old Kaide Gordon found space and composure in the box to slot home his first senior goal for the Reds.

Fabinho then ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s side took a lead into half time, firing in a penalty just before the break.

Gordon was not the only youngster to be given a run-out on Sunday afternoon, with rare starts for Tyler Morton, Conor Bradley, Max Woltman and Elijah Dixon-Bonner. 

If they manage to impress Klopp, they could see more opportunities over the coming weeks with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita all on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations. 

“I am happy with the squad and we have options to play and still to play football,” said the German. 

“The thing is there are so many games coming up when we are still together – that is the most intense period now – but then we have a lot of games when Mo and Naby and Sadio are not here.

“That means we have to find line-ups for these games, even when we have cup competitions we have to find line-ups for these games as well, and that is the situation so you can never be perfectly prepared for this.

“We are quite confident we will find solutions.”
