Chelsea will look to press forward in the FA Cup with their eye on landing themselves a domestic double in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge. That would be some way to make an entrance. The Blues head into the weekend looking forward to an FA Cup fifth round tie against Championship side Wolves at Molineux. Not too surprisingly the Premier League Champions-elect are running as strong odds-on favourites to claim the win out on the road.
There’s little reason for Chelsea to sit back and not send out a strong side to compete in this one too. That could spell big trouble for the second tier outfit who they go up against. Chelsea have gotten Diego Costa back and he looks just as much in the mood for success as he was before his little blip adid reports of a fall out with the club. He could be the one to destroy the hopes of Wolves in the FA Cup.
Chelsea have a great head to head record going against Wolves as they have gone W9 L1 in their last ten games against them in all competitions. With Chelsea having lost just one of their last nine out on the road in all competitions as well, the Premier League side will be expected to comfortably be in the draw for the quarter final of this season’s FA Cup. Chelsea have won three of their last four visits to Molineux as well and they are running as second favourites behind Manchester City to win this season’s FA Cup outright.
Even though Wolves pulled off a huge shock in the fourth round of the cup in beating Liverpool at Anfield, it was against a much-changed Liverpool side and it was a result which belies their overall form. They have lost four of their last six games in all competitions and they are rooted firmly in the bottom half of the Championship, which makes their win over the Reds even more surprising to be honest. But they will face a much more efficient, a much stronger Blues machine on the weekend.
