How to watch Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup 5th round live and free
English giants Chelsea and Liverpool meet in a heavyweight fifth round FA Cup clash. Who will march on to the quarter-finals?
Chelsea are having a solid if unspectacular season under first-year manager Frank Lampard. Sitting fourth in the Premier League at the time of writing, reaching the round of 16 in the Champions League and on the cusp of the FA Cup quarter-finals is a reasonable return for a rebuilding club.
The Blues host a Liverpool side that has been nominated EPL champions-elect for some weeks after opening a commanding lead at the top of the table. The Reds did suffer their first league defeat against Watford last round, but still enjoy an immense 22-point lead right now.
The interest here will be on the line-ups the two managers select. Lampard will likely pick a fairly strong team to appease the home support. Counterpart Jurgen Klopp has used a host of reserve players in the competition to date, but is tipped to add a sprinkling of first-team regulars for this match.
When is Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup fifth round?
Kick-off is 6:45am AEDT on Wednesday 4 March at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge.

Who will win Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup fifth round?
This is a very tight match to call. With Liverpool already virtually guaranteed of the Premier League title, how do they approach the FA Cup? There is speculation players like leading striker Mohamed Salah could be added to a youthful line-up to help give them an edge.
Chelsea have a poor recent home record against Liverpool, including a 2-1 league defeat back in September. But Lampard can underline his emergence as a manager with the big scalp of the season's dominant side to date.
With replays gone from the fifth round of the FA Cup onwards, we'll settle for a Blues victory in an extra-time thriller.
