Like many others, I`m of the opinion that the FA Cup is Chelsea`s best hope of winning some silverware this season.

A fifth-round win against Hull City, at Stamford Bridge, saw Chelsea earn a place in the quarter-finals of the competition where they were given an away trip to take on Leicester City.

With their being just the four ties, Chelsea`s tie was always going to be shown live by one of the television companies holding the broadcasting rights.

Yesterday, it was announced that Chelsea`s tie at the King Power Stadium will be shown live on the BBC.

The tie will take place on Sunday 18 March with the kick-off set for 16:30 hours.

Delving into the archives, the two sides played each other in the 1996 / 1997 season, the year that Chelsea won the FA Cup, in a tie that went to a replay and had everything:

Could history be about to repeat itself?
