    Chelsea Football Club (also known as The Blues and The Pensioners) are a professional football club based in Fulham, London. Chelsea were founded on 10 March 1905 at The Rising Sun pub (now The Butcher's Hook) after Gus Mears had previously acquired the Stamford Bridge athletics stadium with the aim of turning it into a football ground. Since there was already a team named Fulham in the borough, the name of the adjacent borough, the Metropolitan Borough of Chelsea, was settled on.

    Chelsea's first major title success came in the form of the League Cup with the appointment of former Arsenal player, Ted Drake, who also led Chelsea to the their first ever League title, enabling them to compete in the European Cup, but after objections from The Football League and the FA, Chelsea were persuaded to withdraw from the competition before it started - allowing Matt Busby's Manchester United to start their illustrious adventure with the competition.

    After decades of being non-competitors, Chelsea returned to the domestic title fore in 2003 under new owner Roman Abramovich, who fueled an unprecedented spending spree - starting in the mid 2000s. Since the takeover, Chelsea have won 1 Champions League title, 5 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cup titles, 1 Europa League title, and 3 League Cup titles, among others. Chelsea's most prominent rivalries include local clubs Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, title rivals Manchester United, Liverpool and Leeds United. Chelsea play their home games at Stamford Bridge - which had been their home for over a century.

    Team should be...

    ---------------Romero---------------
    Young---Bailly---Smalling---Shaw
    ----------------Matic----------------
    -------Fred--------------Pogba-------
    ----------------Mata----------------
    -------Lukaku--------Sanchez-------

    Subs: Grant, Jones, Dalot, Herrera, Pereira, Rashford, Chong

    Need to guard against anymore injuries so I'd keep Rashford on ice for this one. Get Mata to do the job on Jorginho he did in the league game and hope for the best but we're cursed at the bridge so I fear 1 defeat will swiftly turn to 2

    Strong as possible here. Have a feeling there's not a lot wrong with Martial so hopefully he may be ok.

    I worry Sarri will learn from the City defeat and play Kante as the DM, which would be annoying for us. Also would've much rather faced Pedro instead of Willian.

    If one of Lingard and Martial are fit I can see us getting a result. I hope so anyone, because otherwise we only really have top 4 left to play for and our season's almost over.

    Sadly without lingard and martial we don't have much chance, who would have been great in counter attack when chelsea pass to death in around 30 yards away from our goal.

    Zero chance of Kante in that position under Sarri. Even if Jorginho got injured, Kovacic or even Ampadu would preferred.

    I think the CB's will be rotated but I don't think Ole will risk Dalot vs Hazard even though Young is no great shakes defensively. Midfield remains the same, the forward line is a disaster, we have no choice but to play Sanchez and Lukaku even though I'd be tempted to just throw Fred on the RW and see what happens.

    They are shite but it is still the Bridge, a cursed place for us and I guess they will need a reaction.

    We should be winning though. 1-0 to us.

    Hate Monday night games.

    5 days to recover before the game at the bridge and 6 days before Pool. I think we can play our best team twice, then the trap at Palace the following Wednesday…

    There will be a reaction from Chelsea of course but we can’t forget that they were really poor lately so can we finally hope for a victory at the bridge ????

    4-4-2 diamond to place Pogba on Jorginho and Herrera helping Young on Hazard on right side. I would add Fred and play Pogba even higher in that position to force Kante and Jorginho being deeper.

    My team :

    ---------------------------------De Gea----------------------------------
    Young---------Jones---------------Smalling------------Shaw
    ----------------------------------Matic---------------------------------------------------------Herrera--------------Fred-----------------------------------------------------------Pogba---------------------------------------------------------Rashford------------Lukaku-------------------

    I'm not feeling good about this one, hope the players will pick them selves up and do their best, but Chelsea too will have a big point to prove here.

    Think they would be hoping to beat us now seeing that we lost, and have key players out. Probably feeling less downcast after that 6-0.

    We need to rebound and fast. Alexis and Mata are obviously going to start on the wings, so Ole will have to find a way to get the best out of them.

    I think it's clear Ole sees his best team as the one that started vs PSG so i think we will see the same again, depending on Lingard and Martial's injuries. Maybe:

    DDG
    Young - Bailly - Lindelof - Shaw
    Herrera - Matic - Pogba
    Lukaku - Rashford - Martial

    Could be a chance for greenwood to get some minutes - although obviously not the ideal place for him to make his first team debut.

    A little more pessimistic following the injuries to Martial and Lingard. Lukaku and Rashford will almost certainly play but getting enough energy in the wide areas and on the counter attack is a concern. Our squad has to step up big time in the next few fixtures but will it :nervous:

    It feels weird to say but I honestly don't care about the cups this year. After the intentional tanking of our season by the previous manger, finishing in the CL places is the priority.

    I'm really confused by this attitude. Can't relate to it at all. Last season was the same snobbery about the FA Cup being unimportant, willing to make a trade with the devil to ensure Liverpool lost the CL. I mean this with utmost contempt (at the sentiment not you personally) - did you even watch the cup final last season? Did you not mind watching Chelsea lift the cup in front of our defeated faces? How can you not want to make amends .

    Especially with Ole in charge, I desperately want revenge next week. And I desperately want to see us lift a trophy up high with that beautiful not so baby faced grin.

    The season is no longer a wash! All of a sudden we're relevant again. One loss against a top side doesn't change that. It should fire us up even more.

    Looking forward to this one. Both clubs will be looking for reaction against a good opponent (I don't think Chelsea will care too much about their Europa League tie).

    I think we'll see some changes and not just the likely forced ones. I expect to see Chris Smalling starting and possibly Lukaku and Sanchez too.

    de Gea
    Young Smalling Lindelof Shaw
    Herrera Matic Pogba
    Lukaku Rashford Sanchez
    ---
    Romero; Dalot, Bailly, Jones; Fred, Mata; Greenwood​

    If Martial or Lingard are fit then great, but I'd rather they were just left out in preparation for the Liverpool game.

    At the moment I'd have Chelsea as favourites due to our injuries, home advantage and our record at the Bridge in general in the last 15 years or so. It'll be nice if we can get a result here, but I wouldn't really want a replay either.

    Ah, that's good then. Strange that it's replays for 4th Round and not 5th Round! Would've made more sense if it was Quarter Finals onward or just no replays at all.

    Definitely need to start Sanchez and Lukaku instead of Martial and Lingard with them out. The CBs also can change, they're all about the same. The rest stays consistent. Will be tough but its important to bounce back, and especially since this was always our biggest hope for a trophy. I do hate that its away to Chelsea though. Absolutely turgid record there.

    We need to sort the right flank for this one. Lukaku/Rashford at RW or the right side of a diamond could be possibilities but even playing Dalot there might not be the worst idea in the world.
