What about Arsenal, Tiago?
Tiago Ilori has issued a Liverpool rallying cry after Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Reds are taking on Bolton Wanderers at Anfield in their fourth-round clash after their top-four rivals all suffered humiliating home defeats in the cup.
Premier League leaders Chelsea lost 4-2 to League One side Bradford City, City were beaten 2-0 by Middlesbrough, whilst Leicester edged past Tottenham.
Even Ronald Koeman’s high-flying Southampton side suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat by Crystal Palace, leaving Arsenal and Liverpool as favourites to win the competition.
Although Ilori forgot to mention the Gunners in his pre-match tweet, the Liverpool defender is hoping Brendan Rodgers’ side can enjoy a good run in the FA Cup.

The Portugal Under-21 is currently on a season-long loan at Ligue 1 side Bordeaux after the centre-half spent last term at La Liga outfit Granada.
Ilori joined Liverpool from Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon in 2013.
