The FA Cup 5th round clash between the two sides will take place on Tuesday 3 March at 7:45pm BST at the Stamford Bridge Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp would be hoping his Liverpool players put their Saturday’s shock 3-0 defeat at Watford behind them when the reigning European champions will travel to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday to face a Chelsea side which also failed to win on the weekend.
Frank Lampard’s men had to rely on a late Marcos Alonso strike to salvage a 2-2 draw with relegation-threatened Bournemouth. The Blues’ would be hoping to ease some pressure on their manager by claiming the Reds’ scalp on Tuesday night.
Given the significance of a potential victory in this clash, both sides are expected to field relatively strong line-ups. Their decision to do so would be a break from their tradition in the previous rounds of this season’s FA Cup as both Chelsea and Liverpool nominated young line-ups in the earlier rounds.
