chelsea fa cup

Chelsea will face Hull City at home in the fifth round of this year’s FA Cup.

The Premier League champions were forced into a replay by Norwich City in the third round, with the Championship side then taking us into a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge. However, the Blues prevailed and subsequently our name was in the draw for round four.

We were  drawn with Newcastle United at home, a fixture which didn’t provide us with much of a test. We defeated the Magpies in front of our home crowd thanks to a first-half brace from Michy Batshuayi and another stunning free-kick from Marcos Alonso.

As the club announced on their official Twitter account, we will now face Championship opposition once again in the shape of Hull City.

It provides us with an excellent opportunity to reach the quarter-finals of a competition which may well be our only realistic hope of winning any silverware this term.
