Chelsea and Liverpool meet at Stamford Bridge in the fifth round of the FA Cup. This will be the first meeting between the clubs in the competition since the 2012 final, which Chelsea won 2-1.
What has been said?
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard: “It’s Liverpool, our fans are coming to see us in the FA Cup trying to overturn the best team in the land.
“It doesn’t mean I might not change a couple of people, I think there might be something for freshness of legs or a couple of little different options.
“But I won’t pick a team casually where I’m giving minutes. I’m treating it with the care I would any Premier League game.”

Chelsea vs Liverpool latest odds
A spokesperson for thepools.com said: “Liverpool have beaten Chelsea in their last three meetings, including a 2-1 win in the league in September. The hosts have been finalists in two of the last three seasons, and beat Liverpool on their last Wembley visit in the 2012 final.
“However recent form fancies the Premier League leaders; Chelsea have won just two in eight, without a clean sheet, and despite an apparent wobble and six goals conceded in three, the Reds have 37 points from 42 away in the league.
“We make Liverpool slight favourites to win at 8/5, and with nine goals in three games between them, either team to win and both to score is a decent 11/8.
“You can get 8/1 that Marcos Alonso scores anytime, after three in two league games, and Curtis Jones is 9/1 to score anytime after two in three FA Cup games.”
