Chelsea vs Liverpool: Michael Owen predicts winner of FA Cup clash

Former Real Madrid star, Michael Owen, has predicted the outcome of the FA Cup fifth-round match between Chelsea and Liverpool on Tuesday.

Chelsea will tonight host the Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard’s men head to the match after playing a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in the Premier League last weekend, while Liverpool lost 3-0 against Watford.

“For me, this is the match of the round,” Owen wrote in his Betvictor column.

“The four medals Frank Lampard has won in the FA Cup is a reflection of his love concern with the competition and Liverpool are the best team in the world this season.

“Since it is a one leg-tie at this stage of the competition, I see this match being a tight, cagey contest.

“However, much will depend on the side Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, to decided to play, although as both Shrewsbury and Everton can attest to, even a more youthful Liverpool side will take some stopping.”
