We've just drawn Chelsea away in the next round of the FA Cup.

City get a piss easy draw against Newport/Middlesbrough

Edit - No replays in 5th Rnd
A reminder that there will be no replays in the fifth round - all eight ties will be played to a finish on the day of the game.

If the scores are level after 90 minutes, extra-time and penalties will be used to decide the winner.

All ties will be will take place between 15-18 February.

We're going back to the days of always drawing Prem teams ffs

But Chelsea are there for taking at the min. Sarri-ball has disintegrated because the cunt is so rigid to his system they're bodging to fuck. He's got Hazard as a false 9 and Kante as an attacking mid / winger. And Jorginho is struggling to find space now.

Higuian will give them more balance and see Hazard back in his best position. But you can see a way to win because Sarri is so rigid you know what you're gonna get.

Can’t say I fancy us. Both sides will make changes and I think they’ll be less impacted than we will.

Shame Greenwood is injured as it sounds like he was going to play. Let’s give Gomes and Chong a go, see what they’ve got.

Think the last time we beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was 2012

3 managers have tried and failed since then, can Ole do any better

Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic; Pedro, Higuain, Hazard. Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Hudson-Odoi, Barkley, Willian Giroud.

Manchester United: Romero; Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw; Matic, Herrera, Pogba; Mata, Lukaku, Rashford. Subs: De Gea, Bailly, Dalot, Fred, McTominay, Pereira, Sanchez.

We've no competition for the front six positions, it's desperate. No Chong or Gomez on the bench is a disappointment.

Rashford will be shunted out wide for Lukaku to play down the middle
