Liverpool v Birmingham 2-0 (FA Cup match: February 21, 1920)

February 21, 1920
Key note: “A scrappy game, marked by very few thrills, saw Birmingham wiped out of the Cup competition, and they were ousted by a team which adopted superior tactics in thrusting home their attacks. Liverpool were not at their best, but they were a sufficiently superior team, particularly in attack, to satisfactorily account for Birmingham, who were sadly below their proper form.” (Birmingham Daily Gazette: February 23, 1920)
