Betting Tip: Jordan Henderson - Liverpool vs Blackburn @ 11/1 with bet365

Premier League top four challengers Liverpool will welcome Championship side Blackburn Rovers to Anfield, in a tasty FA Cup quarter-final encounter.

The Reds have a dominant record at the quarter-final stage of this competition, having progressed on 15 of the last 16 occasions when they have made it this far.

Their in-form midfielder Jordan Henderson has been on a fine run, after scoring first in his previous two outings against Manchester City and Burnley.

Henderson is available at an awesome 11/1 with Bet365 to open proceedings again this time out, following his rampant run of form.

Blackburn face an extremely tough task of overcoming Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying side, with Liverpool having gone unbeaten in the Premier League since the turn of the New Year.

Gary Bowyer’s Rovers have struggled in recent weeks, securing just a single victory in their previous five domestic league matches, and they are a best priced 12/1 with William Hill to cause a famous upset and topple their superior opposition on Merseyside.

However, goals at Anfield are hard to come by for the travelling outfit, with their last two strikes there being own-goals from Liverpool players.

Blackburn’s poor record in their previous trips to Anfield is highlighted by the fact they have won none of their last 11 visits, drawing four and losing seven times.

Henderson’s central midfield partner and club captain Steven Gerrard has a strong scoring return against their cup opposition, after netting four times in his last six starts against them.

Gerrard, who made his Premier League debut against Rovers in 1998, is a best priced 7/4 with SkyBet to strike again anytime in his latest outing, as he aims to guide his side towards an eighth cup triumph.

Reds boss Rodgers will be confident of his side’s progression, with Blackburn struggling domestically, but the 10th-placed Championship outfit have impressed in a clinical cup campaign after beating Swansea and Stoke.

However, there is hope for Bowyer’s battlers as the hosts have kept just one clean sheet in their last 20 FA Cup games, proving they will get chances to secure a shock win.

Although, recently returning striker Daniel Sturridge will be a key threat, after striking 10 goals in his previous 12 cup starts, and he is available at a best priced 10/3 with Coral to net the opening goal.
