Jordan Ibe’s stunning individual effort helped Liverpool to a win over Blackpool but it was Ryan Crump’s goalkeeping heroics that saved the day for the Merseysiders.
Blackpool managed to draw the game 3-3 and take the tie to a penalty shoot-out at Bloomfield Road but couldn’t find a way past Liverpool from the spot. Crump made penalty saves from Joe Moulden and Dominic Telford to send Liverpool through to play Aston Villa in the next round.
In normal time, twice Ibe gave Liverpool the lead but Sam Staunton Turner and Conor Ready saw Blackpool equalise. In extra-time the Tangerines almost grabbed a last-gasp victory through Telford but Seyi Ojo managed to put the Reds level.
