Just because Havant & Waterlooville are seven divisions lower than their rivals doesn't mean they've got less than an 80/1 chance (according to bookmakers) of pulling up an upset.

We all know Liverpool's players, so let's have a look at the formiddable H&W squad, thanks to BBC Sport:
GK - Scriven (Builder for his dad's company)
RB - Gregory (Physio Student)
CB - Smith (Planner)
CB - Warner (Van Driver)
LB - Taggart (Bin man)
RW - Harkin
CM - Collins (Primary School Teacher)
CM - Oatway (Community Worker)
LW - Potter (On loan from Peterborough)
ST - Baptiste (Training to be a cab driver) [Also a Liverpool fan]
ST - Pacquette (School Caretaker)

Should be a cracker of a match! I think I'll take a punt on a 1-0 H&W upset.

Here are some highlights from their 1st leg against Swansea City in the 3rd Round (H&W in the Yellow):

Im living in Portsmouth at the moment, H&W is just up the road. Quite an achievement from them already and I can see them causing Liverpool some problems with their tenacity.

The reds'll still scrape it though :D

Gerrard: Admits he still doesn't know anything about his opponents on the eve of the match

“(Beating Luton) has set up a cracking tie for the romantics with non-league Havant and Waterlooville, who I’ll be honest enough to say I know nothing about at the moment although I’m sure that will change as we focus on the game.
“Sadly for them, there aren’t any romantics in our dressing room! Well, maybe Carra! Seriously, they’ve done brilliantly to get this far and their result against a Swansea side that’s flying in the league was maybe the result of the competition so far.

Nothing says Australia Day like an old fashioned underdog getting up, let's hope this trend continues (H)

HALF TIME
Liverpool 2-2 Havant & Waterlooville

Unbelievable.

Liverpool have Carragher, Gerrard, Kuyt and Torres on the bench. I have a feeling we might see a couple on shortly after the break...

If you want to take a punt, while they aren't at 80/1 anymore, H&W still present good value at 10/1...

Should there be a draw, Liverpool can expect a replay at this massive H&W stadium:
