Four added minutes at Home Park. Liverpool hanging on, a little.


GOAL! Southampton 1-0 Norwich City (Shane Long)


Songo'o dives in on Albert Moreno and Plymouth's status in the FA Cup is hanging by a thread as a penalty is awarded. Divock Origi steps up by McCormack makes a good save to his right. Can Plymouth take advantage?

Last throw of the dice for Plymouth as the big Nauris Bulvitis comes on for the Jordan Slew. Can Argyle force one more chance? They've had a fair few already.


What a chance for Plymouth! A long ball finds Bradley, whose header across the goal finds Jervis whose flashing volley hits the outside of the post. So close for the hosts, who have had a decent period of pressure.


GOAL! Newcastle United 2-1 Birmingham (David Cotterill)


Almost a goal on his Liverpool debut for Harry Wilson as Luke McCormack hits a goalkeeper against the forward but the ball balloons over the bar. Scrappy display this from Plymouth, who have not shown a great deal to convince they can get back into the game.


Big night for young Harry Wilson, who is coming on for his Liverpool debut. The Under-23 star will replace Philippe Coutinho, who has lasted over an hour on his full return to the Reds first team.


Loris Karius makes a mess of a Jervis cross, under pressure from Garita, and drops the ball at the feet of the Plymouth forward. Garita can only poke the ball over and anyway the referee's whistle had already gone. Nervy moment for the Liverpool stopper.


Liverpool monopolising possession at the start of this second half, not giving Plymouth an ounce of encouragement. Home side can't get out of their own defensive third.

Signal of intent from Argyle as David Fox shoots from range and Karius gets down to keep it out.


Players out and we're back underway at Home Park. Can Plymouth turn this around and produce the shock of the round?


Half time: Plymouth 0-1 Liverpool

Not much to choose between these sides by the visitors have the lead through Lucas' first goal for seven years. Plymouth have been competitive but they have work to do to keep themselves in the competition.

It's half-time in the other two replays, where Newcastle lead Birmingham 2-0, while Southampton and Norwich are deadlocked at St Mary's


GOAL! Newcastle United 2-0 Birmingham (Yoan Gouffran)

Rafa Benitez won the trophy in 2006 and is heading for a fourth round appearance with Newcastle. Shelvey's free-kick finds Gouffran, who controls the ball, turns and fires home.


What a chance for Plymouth! Threlkeld gets down the right and crosses for Garita, whose deflected shot wrong-foots Karius but goes wide of the Liverpool goal.


Liverpool go close to a second as Gomez gets in behind and crosses on the volley, but it is just behind Sturridge who was waiting to tap into an empty net.
