The Reds are enjoying a good spell of form lately, despite a frustrating FA Cup stalemate against Bolton Wanderers at the weekend, and arguably go into the fixture in a better place than Chelsea who are still reeling from their astonishing defeat at home against League One outfit Bradford City.

The two sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in the first leg at Anfield last week, a game that Liverpool arguably should’ve won after a dominant second half display, which leaves Chelsea as slightly favourites to progress to the final against Tottenham Hotspur or Sheffield United.

Despite the shocking Bradford defeat, however, Chelsea are top of the Premier League and have been impressive for the majority of the season, having already beaten Liverpool at Anfield in the league, but Rodgers has insisted that his side have nothing to fear from Jose Mourinho’s men:

“We respect the opponent, of course, because they’re a very good team. But we’ve got nothing to fear in the game. We’re a team that’s in a good moment.”
