"I think going to play at Anfield is something that, as a Liverpool fan, I've always waned to do and a lot of my family are over as well who are Liverpool fans so they'll be in the stands as well so it'll be a great day for everyone.

"We know not many people are going to give us a chance of Sunday, so we're going there without any pressure. But we'll go there and try and give the best performance we can possible."

– Graham Carey, Plymouth Argyle player

More than 8,000 fans will travel from Devon to Merseyside on Sunday morning for the third round tie against Liverpool. The coaches are scheduled to leave at 5am from Home Park.

But some fans have already made the journey, deciding to make a weekend of the game. And everyone's in good spirits:

Plympton based Target Travel will take thirty five coaches to Liverpool and say when you're transporting more than one and a half thousand fans nothing is left to chance.

"Vehicles being vehicles something might happen so we arrange with other operators that we have contacts with on route, one at Bristol one at Worcester one in Liverpool to give us any support they've got 24 hour support available so that's one part of it we are then liaising with the police at Liverpool for the logistics of when the vehicles arrive.

We've also spoken to the motorway services on route to let them know the Green Army is on its way in a multiple of coaches on their way so everybody's aware of what's happening."

– Ashley Taylor, Target Travel
