The FA Cup fourth round takes place this weekend as clubs look to battle it out to earn their place at Wembley in May.

Everton host Brentford on Saturday – Frank Lampard’s first match in charge of the Toffees – and Liverpool host Championship side Cardiff on Sunday.

Ahead of the ties, Merseysportlive’s Andy Lott looks at the biggest fourth round shocks involving the two clubs.

  1. Liverpool 2-3 West Brom – 27th January 2018

Relegation threatened West Brom came to Anfield and scored three first half goals in a 3-2 win back in 2018

Roberto Firmino opened the scoring within five minutes but a brace from Jay Rodriguez and an own goal from Joel Matip saw Liverpool 3-1 down at the break.

Mohamed Salah pulled one back with 12 minutes to go but West Brom held on for a shock win.

The match was overshadowed due to lengthy Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decisions.

VAR ruled out a West Brom goal, gave Jurgen Klopp’s men a penalty whilst delaying awarding the third Albion goal.

  1. Millwall 3-2 Everton – 26th January 2019

Championship side Millwall sealed a dramatic fourth-round win over Marco Silva’s Everton.

Richarlison and Cenk Tosun twice put the Toffees ahead with Lee Gregory and Jake Cooper equalising 15 minutes from time for the London club.


Murray Wallace then scored a 94th minute winner to extend Everton’s trophyless run to 25 years.

  1. Liverpool 1-2 Barnsley – 16th February 2008

Championship side Barnsley knocked Rafa Benitez’s Liverpool side out of the FA Cup with a famous 2-1 at Anfield.

A strong Liverpool side featuring the likes of Xabi Alonso, Jamie Carragher and Peter Crouch went ahead through Dirk Kuyt after half an hour.


The Tykes levelled through Stephen Foster before a dramatic injury-time winner by Brian Howard shocked the Kop.

  1. Everton 0-3 Tranmere Rovers – 27th January 2001

In an all-Merseyside clash, Tranmere Rovers made the trip across the Mersey to inflict more pressure on then Everton manager Walter Smith.

After just one win in their last eight matches, Everton conceded two first half goals from Steve Yates and Jason Koumas.


John Aldridge’s side added a third after the break to heap misery on Everton as they fought against relegation.

  1. Oldham 3-2 Liverpool – 27th January 2013

A Matt Smith double inspired League One Oldham to a famous home win against Liverpool.

Paul Dickov’s side went ahead through Smith before Luis Suarez equalised for Brendan Rodgers’ side.


The Latics’ striker Smith got his second before the break with Reece Wabara adding a third moments after the break.

Joe Allen pulled one back for Liverpool but Oldham held on to knock out the Reds and end their chances of silverware.
