Liverpool will be looking to bounce back against Blackburn in the FA Cup quarter-final replay on Wednesday following successive defeats against Manchester United and Liverpool in the Premier LeagueReuters

Liverpool travel to Lancashire to take on Blackburn Rovers in the quarter-final replay of the FA Cup.

After two back-to-back defeats against Manchester United and Arsenal, Liverpool's hopes of making a top four finish in the Premier League is probably all but over as they are currently seven points behind the fourth place Manchester City.

Liverpool's run in the Champions League this season was also very disappointing as they were unable to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

They did well to reach the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup, but they were narrowly defeated by Chelsea, who went on to win the competition.

Now the FA Cup is Liverpool's only hope of securing a trophy this season. And Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits his side's season can still be a success if they manage to win the FA Cup.

"Our attitude and our mindset is to get to the FA Cup final and win it and we will be fighting to the very end in the league. There is everything still to play for and we can still make it a really successful season," the former Swansea boss told the Telegraph.

"I think if we didn't get in the top four and we didn't have a trophy this year, we ourselves would be disappointed. That's the expectancy we want. We want to be able to be challenging every year. The FA Cup would mark a good step forward for us."

The Reds despite only managing a goalless draw against Blackburn at home on 8 March, are expected to beat the Championship side at Ewood Park on Wednesday

And Rodgers insists that the Reds will be looking to give a positive response to their recent defeats against United and Arsenal when they face Blackburn.

"As a team we haven't performed well in the last two games and the results are the consequence of that," added Rodgers. "Now we have to think about getting back to how we played in that run of games. We know we need to win but it's about how we play."

Blackburn, on the other hand, will also be hoping to take advantage of Liverpool's drop in morale and beat them at Ewood Park on Wednesday.

Following their goalless draw at Liverpool in early March, Blackburn have been pretty inconsistent in the Championship, securing back-to-back wins against Bolton Wanderers and Charlton, before losing two successive games against Brentford and Brighton and Hove Albion.

However, they will be a little confident ahead of their replay clash on Wednesday following their convincing 3-0 win over Leeds United in their last fixture.

Although Blackburn are still the underdogs in this fixture, manager Gary Bowyer is confident his side will be able to do well against the Reds in the FA Cup quarter-final replay clash on Wednesday due to them having the home advantage.

"We have proved in earlier rounds that we have the confidence to take on and beat Premier League teams at Ewood," the Guardian quoted Bowyer as saying. "We have worked very hard to get a group of players who care about the club again, and our fans recognise that. We took 6,000 to Anfield and they never shut up the whole game. All the players were talking about it afterwards."

"A full house at Ewood should be even better and I'd like to think the fans can get behind us and help us over the line in the way the Crystal Palace crowd did on Monday evening."

"We are expecting around 28,500 and it has been a long time since Ewood saw a crowd like that. We are determined to give it a right good go, and if the crowd plays its part too we might be able to pull off a shock."

Expected Lineups:

Blackburn Rovers: Steele; Henley, Baptiste, Kilgallon, Olsson; Cairney, Marshall, Evans, Williamson; Rhodes, Gestede.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Lovren, Touré, Sakho; Markovic, Henderson, Allen, Moreno; Sterling, Sturridge, Coutinho.
