Shrewsbury's Jason Cummings joins Lionel Messi in scoring twice against Liverpool - FA Cup team of the week

Cummings joins Jonathan Kodjia, Gabriel Martinelli, Milan Pavkov and Lionel Messi as the only players to have scored two or more goals against the Reds in a game in the past 18 months

Jason Cummings joined a select band of players on Sunday as the Scot came off the bench to earn third-tier Shrewsbury Town an FA Cup replay against Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Cummings joins Jonathan Kodjia, Gabriel Martinelli, Milan Pavkov and Lionel Messi as the only players to have scored two or more goals against the Reds in a game in the past 18 months.

If Cummings' feat is a rarity, even fewer put in a man-of-the-match performance against Jurgen Klopp's European and world champions.

Josh Laurent was superb for the League One club, who came from two goals down to take Liverpool to a replay at Anfield next month to see who advances to the fifth round.

Simon Eastwood pulled off a string of fine saves as another League One club Oxford United held Premier League Newcastle United to a 0-0 draw at St James' Park.
