Watch: Liverpool v. Oldham Highlights

Clive Mason

Thanks to the lack of live viewing options, we're doing some catching up today with highlights of Liverpool's 2-0 FA Cup victory over Oldham on Sunday afternoon.

Fans who couldn't make it to Anfield for Sunday's FA Cup tie between Liverpool and Oldham may not have missed a classic, but that won't have made the lack of viewing options any less frustrating, and so today we take the unusual step of diving into a general highlights package. Not surprisingly, the focus is on a much more open second half that saw Liverpool's introduction of Lucas and Coutinho for Alberto and Moses give the hosts the lead and forced Oldham out of the defensive shell they'd spent the first half in.

Coutinho's fancy footwork provided a few entertaining moments, but the key was bringing on Lucas, a shift which allowed Steven Gerrard to leave the pivot role he had played in the first half with limited success and move up alongside Jordan Henderson. The removal of Luis Alberto seemed harsh, as the young Spaniard had provided the hosts their best chance of the opening half. For loanee Victor Moses, though, there can be little positive to say, and if it weren't for Liverpool's lack of depth there's every chance the club would be looking for a way to send him back to Chelsea.

The match, in the end, felt rather comfortable following Sterling's deflected goal that gave Liverpool their 2-0 final margin, but Oldham had had their chances before then, and the lower league visitors at times looking dangerous after Liverpool went up a goal. QPR loanee Michael Petrasso in particular gave Liverpool's centre halves a tough second half, creating Oldham's best chance of the night and forcing a strong save from Brad Jones shortly before Agger limped off. Liverpool will now face Bournemouth or Burton Albion in the fourth round.
