This will be the first time since 1988 that Liverpool and Stoke City will be battling each other in the FA Cup. At stake is a place in the semi-finals of the competition. The match will be available live on FOXSoccer.tv in the US and livesoccertv.com in the UK.
Liverpool, who are currently seventh in the Premier League and have had a disappointing campaign so far. In fact, they have only managed four wins in their last 12 games. However, the Reds, who have claimed the Carling Cup for the season, did record a convincing 3-0 win in the Merseyside derby against Everton and will be looking to claim a domestic cup double for the first time since 2001.
Meanwhile, Stoke City, who are 13th in the league, have managed three wins from their last five games in all competitions. The Potters, who incidentally were knocked out of the Carling Cup by the Reds, will be looking for revenge.
Liverpool Probable Team: Reina; Kelly, Skrtel, Carragher, Jose Enrique; Henderson, Gerrard, Bellamy; Downing, Carroll, Suarez
Stoke City Probable Team: Sorensen; Wilkinson, Shawcross, Huth, Wilson; Shotton, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington; Crouch, Walters
