Rant Box: Chelsea v Cardiff City

New, comments

FA Cup weekend begins with the holders hosting 2008 runners-up Cardiff City. So two teams who enjoyed a troubling week about to go at it, then?

Chelsea, they wasted a chance to go four points clear at the top of the Premier League with defeat to Everton. And they lost the finest leftback in the world for the season. Cardiff, meanwhile, have even bigger problems. Another winding order could be in their future if a £1.6m tax bill isn't paid by 10 March. Who, then, will be the first to respond to the adversity?

It best be the Blues.
