CHELSEA v Hull: FA Cup Preview

Date: Friday 16th February 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

Tonight’s FA Cup fifth round tie sees us at home to Hull City and for me, it’s a really hard game to read. After a couple of really shoddy performances, we come into this off the back of a 3-0 win over West Brom – and yes, it was the Baggies and no, we didn’t blow a poor West Brom away but there were undoubted signs of improvement.… Read More

After going out of the League Cup midweek to Arsenal, today’s early kick-off sees us play host to Newcastle in the fourth round of the FA Cup but whilst most predictions I’ve seen seem to have us as firm favourites to go through, I’m less convinced.… Read More

Today’s late game takes us to Carrow Road for an FA cup tie against Norwich. Currently 13th in the Championship table, the Canaries have lacked consistency this season although come into this game unbeaten in their last three.… Read More

CHELSEA v Arsenal: FA Cup Final Preview

Venue: Wembley Stadium
Kick-off: 17:30 BST

Whilst everyone else has hung their boots up for a rest before pre-season, our last game of 2016/17 sees us take on Arsenal at Wembley for the FA Cup final.
Neither of us are strangers to Wembley or FA Cup finals, although Arsenal are streets ahead with 12 FA Cups won ahead of today and a win would take them ahead of United in terms of FA Cups in their cabinet.… Read More

CHELSEA v Tottenham: FA Cup Preview

Date: Saturday 22nd April 2017
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Kick-off: 17:15 GMT

Today’s game takes us to Wembley Stadium for an FA Cup semi final against Spurs.

Venue: Stamford Bridge
Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

Tonight’s game sees us take on Manchester United in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

Date: Saturday 12th March 2016
Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

With our midweek defeat in the Champions League still far too fresh in our minds, we’re back at it in today’s late kick off, for an FA Cup tie against Everton.
The Toffees haven’t done particularly well at home in the league lately but that won’t stop them coming into this game feeling a bit more optimistic than us.… Read More

CHELSEA v Man City: FA Cup Preview

Date: Sunday 21st February, 2016
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Kick-off: 16:00 GMT

After a poor start against PSG midweek, Chelsea found enough fire in their belly to come out of it with an away goal and only a marginal defeat. Back at home now, today’s FA cup fourth round tie sees us play host to Man City and whilst we’ve got our Champions League game out of the way, City will come into today’s game with one eye on their game Wednesday.… Read More

CHELSEA v Scunthorpe: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge
Date: Sunday, 10 January
Kick-off: 14:00 GMT

During his first stint in charge in 2009, Guus Hiddink led Chelsea to FA Cup glory in a 2-1 win over Everton. Having blown even a European place this season, he’s hoping for domestic silverware at least, so we can expect the current interim manager to field a strong side as we play host to Scunthorpe.… Read More

CHELSEA v Spurs: Capital One Cup Final Preview


Venue: Wembley Stadium
Date: Sunday, 1 March
Kick-off: 16:00 GMT

This afternoon sees us at Wembley for the Capital One Cup – or League Cup for those of us who still use old money – in what we hope is our first final of the season.
Our opponents, that lot from North London, are more than confident it seems, after the 5-3 win over us New Year’s Day although to be fair to them, Harry Kane has given them plenty of reason to be buoyant this season.… Read More
