After two consecutive failures, Chelsea will now have another difficult match. Pensioners in the FA Cup will host Liverpool. The “blues” are not coming to this meeting in the best shape. Over the past five official matches, Frank Lampard wards have won only once. Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur (2: 1), but lost at home to Manchester United (0: 2) and Bayern Munich (0: 3). In other matches during this time, “pensioners” broke the world with Leicester (2: 2) and Bournemouth (2: 2).
Liverpool suffered their first defeat in the Premier League last weekend. It turned out pretty painful. The Reds lost to Watford (0: 3). This fiasco did not really affect the position of the Merseysides. Even if Liverpool lose another five games at 0-3, it will still remain the first. Moreover, at least with a four-point handicap. However, this may affect the confidence of the “reds” in their abilities. The results of “Liverpool” somewhat deteriorated after a short vacation team. 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).
