Goals from Michael Owen, Danny Murphy and Florent Sinama-Pongolle ensured the Reds victory, with Alan Smith scoring for Leeds in a 3-1 loss.
Monk’s team will have won eye on their league campaign, but with a clash at Anfield set to be play, his players will be motivated to feature in the famous ground.
The former Swansea boss has made a lot of changes to his line-ups in previous rounds, but his star players are likely to be unhappy if they are left out against Liverpool.
