FA CUP BRIEFING
Sunday, March 18
Chelsea v Leicester
Blues caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo is confident John Terry and David Luiz will be fit. Terry failed to finish the win over Napoli, while fellow defender Luiz was limping badly afterwards with an ankle injury.
Di Matteo looks set to make changes after many players completed 120 minutes in midweek, while Raul Meireles is available after suspension.
Paul Konchesky is available for Leicester after suspension. Manager Nigel Pearson must decide whether to restore the former Liverpool full-back to the starting XI or stick with Tom Kennedy.
Fellow defender Matt Mills, midfielder Ben Marshall and strikers Steve Howard and Jeff Schlupp are also pushing for recalls but midfielder Danny Drinkwater, back-up goalkeeper Conrad Logan and teenage defender Liam Moore are cup-tied.
Top scorers (all competitions): Frank Lampard (Chelsea) 13; David Nugent (Leicester) 14
Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)
Liverpool v Stoke
Forward Craig Bellamy could return to the Liverpool squad having missed the midweek Merseyside derby victory. Defender Glen Johnson is still not fit having sat out the last three games while centre-back Daniel Agger is still sidelined with a cracked rib.
Stoke will be without striker Ricardo Fuller, who starts a three-match ban. Boss boss Tony Pulis has already confirmed Thomas Sorensen will get his chance in goal after losing the number one spot to Asmir Begovic last month while Peter Crouch, rested at Stamford Bridge, will also come in.
Top scorers (all competitions): Luis Suarez (Liverpool) 10; Peter Crouch (Stoke) 10
Referee: Kevin Friend (Leicestershire)
