FA Cup fourth-round predictions: Lawro v Man Like Mobeen star Tolu Ogunmefun

Liverpool’s unbeaten Premier League record is still intact after Thursday’s win at Wolves, but will they survive an FA Cup trip to League One Shrewsbury unscathed?

The Reds’ trip to Shrewsbury (Sunday, 17:00 GMT) is one of three fourth-round ties you can watch live on the BBC this weekend.

BBC Sport’s football expert Mark Lawrenson has taken a look at all 16 of this weekend’s ties and given his verdict on who will make it into round five.
