This Sunday, with the kick-off time set for 18:00 hours, Chelsea continue their defence of the FA Cup they won last May, when they welcome Sheffield Wednesday, to Stamford Bridge, for a 4th round tie.
Chelsea reached the 4th round of the competition with a comfortable 3rd round win at home to Nottingham Forest whereas Sheffield Wednesday required a replay to ease past Luton Town, at Kenilworth Road after a draw at Hillsborough.
The Championship side will be looking to create a cup upset this Sunday, in front of the BBC cameras and will be cheered on by a travelling support numbering close to 6,000.
It’s been a good week for Chelsea supporters who are still savouring the wonderful win, against Tottenham Hotspur, in the Carabao Cup semi-final, that saw them reach a Wembley Final.
For the Tottenham game, Maurizio Sarri made numerous changes to his starting eleven with Emerson, Barkley and Giroud coming in.
Will that trio be chosen for the tie against Sheffield Wednesday or will Sarri decide to give Gonzalo Higuain a first run out in a Chelsea shirt after the Argentine international signed for the club on Wednesday?
As usual, we’re asking you to second guess the starting eleven that Sarri will select.
Simply drop your predicted starting eleven in our comments facility and we’ll see if anyone gets it 100% correct.
Up the Chels!
