On Tuesday, March 3, Chelsea will host Liverpool in the fifth round match of the FA Cup. The match will take place at Stamford Bridge at 19.45 GMT. In their history, Chelsea and Liverpool met 185 times, of which 64 times won the “blue” and 79 “red”. 42 times fights ended in a draw.
However, in the FA Cup, Chelsea are quite successful. Over the 20 years of this century, “senior citizens” have won the tournament five times. In addition, the "blue" here often get to the late stages. In the first two fights of this draw, Chelsea won Nottingham (2: 0) and Hull City (2: 1).
What testifies not entirely in favor of “pensioners” is the statistics of meetings with tops. Chelsea lost to Liverpool (1: 2) at home in the Premier League, Manchester United (0: 2), tied with Arsenal (2: 2) and won only Tottenham Hotspur (2: 1) . True, the away results of Lampard's wards look better: wins over Arsenal (2: 1) and Tottenham (2: 0), but defeats against Manchester City (1: 2) and Manchester United (0: 4 )
Personnel losses at Chelsea are serious. The club’s infirmary has Tammy Abraham, N’Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The results of Liverpool somewhat deteriorated after a short vacation. Having returned from rest, the “Reds” minimally defeated Norwich (1: 0) and West Ham (3: 2), and lost to Atletico (0: 1) and Watford (0: 3).
Liverpool flies out of the FA Cup very quickly even with Jurgen Klopp. Going into the fifth round in the current draw is the maximum indicator of a team with a German. And “red” made their way here not without adventures. Exposing the youth squad, Liverpool beat Everton (1: 0), and in the fourth round only Shrewsbury did it in the replay (2: 2, 1: 0).
With the representatives of the top six, Liverpool played three times away this season. The Merseysides defeated Chelsea (2: 1), Tottenham Hotspur (1: 0) and tied with Manchester United (1: 1).
There are only two losses in Liverpool: Nathaniel Clyne and Jordan Henderson. Questioned the participation of Xherdan Shaqiri
