FA Cup Match Preview: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea have won only two of their last eight matches in all competitions after Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth. They have lost two of their last three at Stamford Bridge and have failed to score five times in their last 11 on home soil.

Liverpool suffered their first league defeat of the season at the weekend after being hammered 3-0 away to strugglers Watford. Liverpool haven’t lost two matches in a row without scoring since 2014.

Chelsea have scored exactly once in each of their last seven home games against Liverpool. Klopp’s side are favourites but it will be interesting to see how they react to Saturday’s defeat, having recently lost to Atletico Madrid without scoring too.

Chelsea– Jorginho is available to face Liverpool on Tuesday night, as Premier League suspensions triggered by accumulated yellow cards do not apply to domestic cups. He will start here as a result.

Frank Lampard looks set to be without Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the welcome of Liverpool on Tuesday night. Start forecasting your today’s games Now

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is expected to make his long-awaited return from injury on Tuesday night but likely from the bench.

Kepa has been demoted as Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper in league and Europe but should get a chance to impress here.

Antonio Rudiger was dropped against Bournemouth and will hope to return here.

Liverpool– Jordan Henderson was a huge miss in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Watford but Liverpool’s captain remains sidelined here.

Joe Gomez and James Milner are available again after missing out at the weekend through injury.

Dejan Lovren played poorly in Gomez’s place against Watford and will certainly miss out here.

Curtis Jones has been hugely impressive in previous rounds of the FA Cup and will hope to start for the away side.

Pedro Chirivella is hoping to get a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge, but Harvey Elliot won’t feature.
