Liverpool’s season has been a roller coaster ride, with the team’s slow start to the season seeing them bomb out of the Champions League and pose no title threat compared to the last campaign.

In 2015, there has been a resurgence in the league and a top four spot seemed to be on the cards before consecutive defeats against Manchester United and Arsenal means that Champions League football won’t be played at Anfield next term.

The FA Cup is all that remains and Liverpool are favourites to claim a replay victory against Blackburn although it could be a close encounter considering that the Reds are without key personnel.

Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard are still missing with suspension and Emre Can has joined them on the sidelines which means that Brendan Rodgers will have to reshuffle.

Blackburn will be confident of running their opponents close considering they won 3-0 at Leeds in their last match, with Jordan Rhodes one of the most deadly strikers outside of the Premier League.

Liverpool were run close by Bolton Wanderers in the last round before a red card cost the Championship side dear although their Lancashire counterparts may go one better.
