Chelsea could face Liverpool in FA Cup with Wayne Rooney one game away from Man Utd tie

Chelsea could face Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round while Wayne Rooney faces the prospect of playing against Manchester United.

The Blues will host the Premier League leaders if they come through a fourth-round replay against Shrewsbury. Jurgen Klopp has indicated none of his first-team players will be involved in the reverse fixture against the League One outfit, however.

Old Trafford icon Rooney could face his former team if current club Derby County overcome Northampton Town in their own replay.

The England legend, who is United’s leading goalscorer in history, joined the Rams in January from DC United.

Elsewhere, reigning champions Manchester City will play Sheffield Wednesday while Arsenal will travel to Portsmouth if they beat Bournemouth in this evening’s fourth-round clash.
