It’s a battle of the fallen giants in the fifth round of the FA Cup coming this week. Chelsea will host Liverpool, who recently faced a heavy defeat for the first time after a while. Both English teams will try to bounce back from their underwhelming displays and will definitely bring the best out of the teams as they move closer to the end of campaign season in European leagues.

The home team will head to this match with back-to-back games without a win, defeated by Bayern Munich 0-3 in their Champions League kick-off match at home and shared spoils with Bournemouth 2-2 in a league match last time. They won only 1 in their last 5 games across all competitions, drawn 2 and lost 2. Despite the underwhelming display, the Blues cemented the 4th place of the English top-flight table with 45 points from winning 13, losing 9 and drawing 6 of 28 matches in the league so far this season. They have scored 47 goals which is also the 4th most in the league so far, conceded to 39. Frank Lampard’s men are back at home for this match, with only 2 wins, having lost 2 and drawn the other 1 in their last 5 home games across all competitions.
In a shocking Premier League action last weekend, the relegation-threatened Watford at home ended the domination of the Reds, following the 3-0 defeat that broke their 27-match unbeaten this season, and a record-tying 18-match winning run and 44-game unbeaten run in the league. The champions-in-waiting Reds traveled to Vicarage Road with 22-point lead on top of the table and return home losing their club and league record to Watford’s Ismaila Sarr brace and Troy Deeney goal that sealed three points. The Reds’ underwhelming performance on the road was displayed during their Champion League kick-off with Atletico Madrid breaking their then 12-games unbeaten run across all competitions that was followed by a win at home against West Ham United 3-2. Despite the loss, they remain the top team in their domestic league with 79 points collected in 28 games. Still on the road for this match, the back-to-back lost last time broke their 6 matches unbeaten on the road across all competitions, won 5 and drawn 1 since the lost to Aston Villa 0-5 in the Carabao Cup.
In the last 10 years, these teams locked horns for 26 times where Chelsea have won 8, while Liverpool have won 8 and the other 10 matches ended in draw.
