Liverpool vs. Chelsea live stream: Preview

The FA Cup is down to its final 16 teams in the Fifth Round, and it’s been a bit of a rough patch for Liverpool lately. The team lost in Champions League play earlier in the month to Atletico Madrid, and this past Saturday, lost its bid to go an entire Premier League season unbeaten after Watford dealt the Reds a 3-0 loss. If there’s a time of the season to catch Liverpool, this might be it.

Chelsea, meanwhile, is having its own issues. In the past two weeks, Chelsea’s been blanked by Manchester United in a decisive Premier League match and went down 3-0 to Bayern Munich in its first Champions League Round of 16, also losing Marcus Alonso to a red card for the return tie. Then, last Saturday, Chelsea needed a second Marcus Alonso goal to salvage a draw with Bournemouth to finish a forgettable February in which it won just one of five matches in all competitions. If there’s a time to catch Chelsea this season, it also might be now.

Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Recent form, summary of last FA Cup match, odds, upcoming fixtures

Liverpool had a tougher time than it should have in the Fourth Round, drawing 2-2 with Shrewsbury Town in its stadium before winning the replay 1-0 with a youth lineup. Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp indicated before the replay that he’d de-emphasize the cup competition for his senior players and look to the future in his replay lineup. And, indeed, the average age of that side was 19, and the lowest squad number of the 11 on the field for Liverpool was 46.

Chelsea got past Hull City in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in KC Stadium on Jan. 25. Hull put up a spirited effort, but Chelsea dominated possession all the same, and the scoreline didn’t quite reflect the outcome.

Odds

According to the DraftKings Sportsbook oddsmakers (as of March 2):

  • Liverpool, +175 (wager $100 to win $175)
