Liverpool's Raheem Sterling is held off by Craig Conway of BlackburnLiverpool and Blackburn meet on Wednesday evening at Ewood Park – 7.45pm kick off UK time – in this FA Cup quarter-final replay, with a semi-final tie against Aston Villa at Wembley the reward for the winners. The two sides drew 0-0 at Anfield almost a month ago and with the Reds coming off back-to-back league defeats against Man Utd and Arsenal, victory over Rovers – with a trip to Wembley guaranteed for the victors – would be a timely boost for a squad who have seen their top four aspirations take a serious blow over recent weeks.

Some good news for the Reds is that of the previous six FA Cup quarter-final replays we’ve played, we’ve won five of them with the other being a draw against W.B.A. back in 1968. The tie against West Brom would go to a second replay which we lost 1-2.
