The versatile young Nigerian defender Tariq Ossai was named in the starting lineup of the Eagles, and saw his penalty saved in the shootout after both teams could not be separated at the end of both regulation and extra time.

Curtis Jones and Toni Gomes were on target for the Reds, while Levi Lumeka and Kian Flanagan netted for the London team.

Liverpool, who have in their ranks Nigerian-born winger Bobby Adekanye, face Manchester City in the fourth round.
