Liverpool To Visit Arsenal In Fifth Round Of FA Cup

Steven Gerrard, Mesut OzilLiverpool has been drawn to face Barclays Premier League rival Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

When the draw for the next stage of the 2013-14 tournament was made Sunday, the No. 14 ball handed Brendan Rodgers‘ team a trip to the Emirates Stadium.

The game will be played on the weekend of Feb. 15-16, just a week after the two sides face off in the Premier League at Anfield.

Rodgers’ charges suffered a 2-0 defeat by the Gunners when they traveled to North London in league action earlier this season.

The Reds booked their place in the last 16 of the competition with a 2-0 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday, with Victor Moses and Daniel Sturridge on the scoresheet.

Liverpool has lifted the FA Cup trophy on seven occasions, most recently in 2006.
