Liverpool have played together as a strong unit for the last two months or so and have been hence enjoying major successReuters

Liverpool, who have lately hit a purple patch in the Premier League, would be eager to carry the momentum into the FA Cup as they prepare for a quarter-final clash against Blackburn Rovers later on Sunday night at Anfield.

The Reds have won four of their last five matches and have defeated teams such as Manchester City and Southampton in the league, which has made them a confident unit of late.

Blackburn Rovers have got nothing much to write home about in recent times, having only won one of their last five matches. Their manager Gary Bowyer has termed the upcoming clash as a David-Goliath clash.

"It's David versus Goliath. Nobody's giving us a chance outside of our dressing room,'' said Bowyer to BBC.

"I think they're the most impressive team in the Premier League at the moment and the football that they're playing is fantastic. Obviously full credit to the manager for the way he changed his formation."

Having got off to a horrendous start this season, Liverpool now find themselves fighting for a spot in the Champions League in the domestic competition.

Brendan Rodgers tried various formations to make the team click and eventually went ahead with three defenders at the back and full wing backs on either side.

With this formation, Liverpool have been solid at the back as well and have conceded fewer goals, as compared to earlier in the season.

Liverpool of late have been without their regular skipper Steven Gerrard, but the player despite his stature as club legend might not walk into the team straightaway and will probably not be risked for tonight's fixture.

Jordan Henderson has captained the team with great success in Gerrard's absence and the player has been in the form of his life.

Will Rodgers play Gerrard if declared fully fit for the game?

One doubts if Rodgers would tinker with the team which has been performing so consistently, so it should come as no surprise if he makes Gerrard sit out the game.

Another selection which would be of interest would be Rodgers deciding to play with only Raheem Sterling up front, or include Daniel Sturridge as striker with Sterling attacking from the wings.

Irrespective of which players Rodgers puts on the field to start the match, surely The Reds would be favourites to win the game and if they play anything like the way they did against Manchester City, they make life really tough for Blackburn.
