Former Liverpool striker Adam Morgan hit a hat-trick but it was not enough to save Curzon Ashton from FA Cup heartbreak as AFC Wimbledon hit back from the dead to claim an extraordinary 4-3 win at Tameside Stadium – surely one of the most amazing comebacks in the competition's long history.

The National League North strugglers - three divisions and 81 places below their visitors - looked to be coasting to victory from the moment Morgan fired a stunning 35-yard opener with just 30 seconds on the clock.

Morgan increased Curzon's lead before the break and completed his hat-trick in the 63rd minute - only for the Dons to strike back with three goals in two minutes from Tom Elliott, Dominic Poleon and Tyrone Barnett before Elliott grabbed the winner deep into injury time.

Liverpool may sell Mamadou Sakho in January after Jurgen Klopp revealed the defender is not in his first-team squad.

Asked about his plans for the upcoming transfer window, Klopp insisted he had no intention of selling England striker Daniel Sturridge or any other first-team player - but then implied that does not apply to outcast Sakho.

"There is absolutely no thought or idea to sell any player from the first team squad," Klopp said. "I don't think it would make sense."

Klopp said in several national newspapers that former Paris St Germain captain Sakho, 26, is not in that category.

"Now you know, I said it: he is not in these plans for the first team," Klopp said. "The first-team squad is here [at the training ground]."

Sakho has been training with the club's under-23 squad since September, when he used social media to dispute Klopp's comments about his fitness.

Yaya Toure has vowed to keep working hard following his Manchester City recall.

The midfielder was frozen out of the first-team picture by manager Pep Guardiola in September following comments by his agent, Dimitri Seluk.

But Toure, 33, apologised and was brought back in for the Premier League victory at Crystal Palace a fortnight ago.

He retained his place for last week's win at Burnley and was among the substitutes for Saturday's big clash with Chelsea.

Speaking in the matchday programme, Toure said: "On a personal level, I have to keep working because Pep is a very, very professional person and he really loves football.

"I think that the most important thing for me is to keep working hard - those who work hardest always have more opportunities to play. I'm delighted to play, I always want to play and help my team-mates."
