Liverpool FC could be on their way to an extraordinary quadruple this season, with the Club World Cup championship trophy already on their mantlepiece, and what appears to be a lock on their first-ever English Premier League title — and first top-flight title since 1990 — with a 13-point lead on the table over second-place Leicester. But Manager Jurgen Klopp has decided to roll the dice on the quadruple, when he fields a weakened side in Liverpool’s 2020 FA Cup debut on Sunday.
The Reds host Everton FC in the third-round FA Cup match, making the match the second Merseyside derby is a month. Liverpool took an away victory in the Premier League on December 4. The game is also a rematch of last season’s third-round, FA Cup showdown. Liverpool won that one, as well.
