Chelsea have a huge FA Cup fifth round clash with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

For Frank Lampard, the FA Cup represents Chelsea’s best opportunity to win silverware this season, as the Premier League and Champions League seem far-fetched for Frank Lampard’s team.

To face Liverpool, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard might think of altering his squad as the Blues also have a huge game this weekend against Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Check out our probable team to play Liverpool tonight:

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga

Defence: Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori, Emerson Palmieri

Midfield: Jorginho, Billy Gilmour, Ross Barkley

Attack: Willian, Giroud, Pedro

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is backed to return to the starting line-up for the first time in six games.

In defence, Lampard will think about giving playing time to Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori who have been short of playing time recently. A rest should be given to Cesar Azpilicueta as Reece James takes the right back spot. Emerson Palmieri will have a rare opportunity to impress as the in-form Marcos Alonso could be dropped to the bench for this game as to have a rest ahead of this weekend’s tie against Everton.

In midfield, youngster Billy Gilmour could have the opportunity to impress and he has done very well so far this season. Rests should be given to Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic for this weekend’s game. Jorginho can be allowed to play as he’s suspended for Chelsea’s upcoming games.

Lampard should also go for the pace of Willian and Pedro, and give the duo the opportunity to start. Willian has been missing from the starting line-up in recent games.

Giroud has been lacking game time before now and should get another start, with Michy Batshuayi coming on in the second half.
