Classic Chelsea-Liverpool: 1997 FA Cup

What better way to prepare for Sunday's top-of-the-table clash between Chelsea and Liverpool than to look back at some of the classic matches in this dynamic rivalry.

What better way to start than the comeback of all comebacks.

Thanks to goals from Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore, Chelsea fell behind 2-0 within 20 minutes in this fourth round FA Cup tie on Jan. 26, 1997. Dead and buried? I think not.

Mark Hughes sparked the monumenal rally, finished off by King Zola's absolute screamer and a brace by Gianluca Vialli

Under Ruud Gullit, the Blues went on to win the FA Cup, defeating Middlesbrough 2-0 at Old Wembley.
