Chelsea will be back in the FA cup action again tomorrow, Sunday, away from home where the Blues Chelsea FC under their Italian manager, Antonio Conte, will be traveling to Leicester to play against the former Premier League champions, Leicester City, in the FA Cup where both teams will be fighting for a qualification, and a loss isn’t accepted by both sides, especially for Chelsea who will be fighting for the FA Cup as the only possible trophy the team can win this season.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Sunday, March 18 at 5:30 PM BST.
Where: King Power Stadium (Away)
Who will play?
Antonio Conte is expected to make some changes compared to the team that played against FC Barcelona in the Champions League last Wedensday. However, Antonio Conte wants to win the FA Cup and the starting Xl should be a strong starting Xl against a tough opponent.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Willy Caballero
Defenders: Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill (Captain), and Cesar Azpilicueta
Midfielders: Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater, and Davide Zappacosta.
Forward: Willian, Eden Hazard, and Oliver Giroud
Chelsea should do anything to win this match, where a loss means Chelsea will get knocked out, and a draw means Chelsea will play the second leg. However, the match won’t be easy at all away from home. We expect a 2-1 win or a 1-1 draw.
Chelsea have never lost against Leicester City in the FA Cup before.
