Predicted Liverpool and Blackburn line-ups

Anfield Pitch

Here is how we predict Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers will start Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final tie.

To be played on Sunday 8th March 2015 at 16:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool

Odds: Liverpool 3/10, Draw 9/2, Blackburn 10/1

Liverpool welcome Blackburn Rovers to Anfield this weekend as the two sides go head-to-head in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Liverpool have enjoyed a wonderful start to 2015 and they will hope to end the campaign with a trophy, but Championship side Rovers will have aspirations of their own and they have already seen off two top flight clubs in this season's competition, beating Swansea City 3-1 in round four and Stoke City 4-1 in round five.

However, both those matches were at Ewood Park and it will be a far tougher prospect taking on the Premier League’s form team on their own turf.

Rovers won the last meeting between the two sides in this competition back in 2000 but Liverpool have the edge, winning five of the nine ties played to date.

Liverpool’s last FA Cup triumph was in 2006 while Blackburn have to look back to 1928 for the last time they won this famous trophy, but their form this season suggests that could be about to change…
