After a momentous victory that put us into a great position in the Premier League, attentions now turn to the FA Cup where we are just three wins away from securing the Lampard Era’s first trophy.
In an ironic twist of fate, our opponents this time around are also our closest competitors in the Premier League. Leicester City sit just one point ahead and will be looking to not only wrap up their European qualification campaign, but also keep their FA Cup dreams alive — so just like us.
Leicester have managed just two draws so far since the Restart, but their quality and the danger they can pose should be familiar to all by now.
For Chelsea, the fitness situation remains the same as before, with Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi expected to miss another game; the rest all available. There’s not much time to rest after this one either with a rivalry game coming up on Wednesday against West Ham.
