The 5th round of the FA cup is upon us tonight with a big clash between Chelsea and Liverpool at the Bridge!
After managing a last minute draw against Bournemouth over the weekend, Lampard’s men will be relishing this fixture especially after Liverpool’s loss to Watford. With Tammy Abraham, Ngolo Kante, Christian Pulisic and Hudson- Odoi still sidelined, Lampard still has a fantastic bunch of players to use! With Pedro, Giroud and Marcos Alonso hitting good form, it would be interesting to see how Lampard will set his team up!
Kepa Arrizabalaga on the other hand is set to start on goal after being in the cold in recent times.
On the other hand Liverpool have to pick themselves up after the loss over the weekend. Klopp and the players themselves will demand a response from the dreadful performance at Vicarage Road. In the past FA games Liverpool opted to use mainly the u23 players who have done exceptionally well so far but I think in this fixture Klopp will include more senior players.
Henderson,Keita and Shaqiri are still absent. Its a relief though that Milner and Joe Gomez will be available again after minor injuries.
