Speaking to Sky Sports, football pundit Charlie Nicholas has predicted which team will win between Liverpool and Exeter in the FA Cup this evening.
Nicholas said: “This Liverpool team, as I've said often enough, can go away from home and play a pressing game but they are still really struggling to deliver when they're expected to win. As for Wednesday night, I think Benteke will return and there will be a bit of anger in this Liverpool team after what happened to them against Manchester United, resulting in a backlash for Exeter to deal with.”
As Nicholas highlights, Liverpool perform better then they are the underdogs, generally playing away from home on the counter attack.
This means Jurgen Klopp’s pressing system is best utilised, with few teams expecting them to press with such intensity.
However, when considered the dominant team, the Reds have been struggling, as they lack the precision to break down teams who sit deep and only look to defend.
This is how Exter are sure to set-up at Anfield on Wednesday evening, but Nicholas believes Liverpool will have enough to break through their ranks and win the game,
He believes Klopp’s men will be looking for revenge after losing to Manchester United at the weekend, and has predicted a huge 4-0 win for the Merseyside giants - with Christian Benteke getting on the scoresheet.
