Twitter reacts at potential Liverpool-Chelsea clash in the FA Cup 5th round
Liverpool will face Chelsea in what will be the standout tie of the FA Cup fifth round – provided the Reds can overcome Shrewsbury Town in the replay.
Both the clubs faced each other last in the competition in the final of 2012-13 with the Blues prevailing 2-1 on the occasion.
The Reds have already defeated Chelsea twice this season – first on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup followed by a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League. Chelsea have had a mixed campaign so far and the FA Cup represents their best chance for silverware this season.
Liverpool, however, will have to defeat an energetic Shrewsbury Town at Anfield in our FA Cup fourth-round replay in order to face off against Chelsea.
The Reds were leading 2-0 in the original fixture at New Meadow before Shrewsbury fought back to take the tie to a replay.
The Liverpool reserves have shown that they can hold their own against the likes of Everton and it will be interesting to see how they fare against Shrewsbury at Anfield.
In a strange coincidence, the Liverpool Women’s team were also drawn away to Chelsea in their FA Cup fifth-round tie.
