Chelsea Preview – Blues to bounce back with a big FA Cup win?

After one win in seven league and cup games, Frank Lampard’s Chelsea will take any kind of victory at the moment. The Blues were going great guns before back-to-back league defeats to Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers in mid-December. Since a 3-0 victory over West Ham United, Chelsea have taken just one point from their last three league fixtures.

The London side have fond memories of the FA Cup, and Lampard won this competition four times while a Blues player. It goes without saying, Chelsea will be looking for a good run in the FA Cup this season, starting with an easy home win on Sunday.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to win to nil

(odds taken 0932 GMT, Saturday 9 January)

On paper, Chelsea have the far superior squad, and the Premier League outfit should have no problems easing past the EFL League Two side. The FA Cup has produced plenty of shocks throughout the years, but we cannot foresee an upset at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Morecambe Preview – Shrimps to crash to a heavy defeat?

Morecambe are currently in seventh place in the League Two table, winning exactly half of their 20 fixtures so far. Derek Adams’ men will be hoping for promotion to EFL League One come the end of the season.

Morecambe head to the Bridge in fine fettle. They have not played since Boxing Day, but the Shrimps have won each of their last four in League Two. On their way to the third round of the FA Cup, the fourth-tier side have seen off Maldon & Tiptree and Solihull Moors.
