It will be interesting to see Maurizio Sarri’s team selection for Sunday as this FA Cup tie comes so soon after their League Cup meeting with Tottenham on Thursday, and just a few days before their Premier League trip to Bournemouth on Wednesday.
It is fair to assume that all eyes will be on new signing Gonzalo Higuain in the goalscorer markets if he is selected!
Expect Sarri to go strong with his starting line-up as Chelsea have an excellent tradition in the FA Cup, winning the tournament five times in the previous twelve years, and they tend to be excellent at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have won nine in a row at home in the FA Cup since they last tasted defeat in January 2015, racking up five wins to nil. They’ve conceded one goal in their last six FA Cup matches on home soil and another home win to nil is 11/10 with Boylesports.
It is unlikely to be a high scoring encounter as Chelsa have seen both teams score in just two of their past nine in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday have lost just one of their last eight in all competitions, but they have only scored six goals in that time. Expect them to try and frustrate Chelsea on Sunday.
With that in mind, the Chelsea win and under 3.5 goals looks good at 5/4 (Boylesports), as does the Chelsea win and under 2.5 goals at 3/1 (Betfred).
The hosts should have too much quality for Wednesday, who have gone beyond the fourth round of the FA Cup once since the turn of the century.
