Liverpool enter the FA Cup tie after registering a 2-0 win over Hull City at Anfield on New Year's. Daniel Agger opened the scoring for Brendan Rodgers' side before Luis Suarez doubled the lead in the second half as the Reds sealed a comfortable victory.

The result comes after their 2-1 back to back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea away from home during the festive season. The two defeats has seen Liverpool drop down the table as they sit in fourth spot with 39 points from 20 games.

Meanwhile, Oldham come into this fixture after suffering a 1-2 defeat against Shrewsbury Town in the last fixture at home. John Taylor scored before the half hour mark for Shrewsbury before Jonathan Grounds equalised before half time.

Brendan Rodgers

However, Aaron Wildig's second half goal has seen Lee Johnson's side suffer another defeat in League One. The visitors have been suffering a poor form in the league and they sit 19 in the table with 24 points from 23 games. The visitors have managed only one win in the last five fixtures played in all competitions.

What Managers Say

Colin Pascoe (Assistant Manager): "The FA Cup is a special trophy. We'll assess if everyone is fit, and pick a team that will go out to win the game. The youngsters have trained well and I'm sure they'll be ready if they're called upon, but we're looking for a good performance."

Lee Johnson: "I mean this in the nicest possible way - he's [Luis Suarez] like a dirty street rat. He's sharp, horrible, but that's all in admiration for him. He's a winner; he's someone with the immense desire to be better today than he was yesterday and you see that in his game."
