A great atmosphere and perhaps a more tense affair than it should have been against Utd in the FA Cup quarter-final last Monday. Kerry applauds yet another stunning performance by Kante and even Michael Oliver gets some praise for stopping Utd kicking Hazard out of the game. We now look forward to Spus in the semi-final although Kerry admits that drawing Arsenal or City might have been an easier proposition.
With Lukaku appearing to want out of Everton, would Kerry like to see him back at Chelsea and what would this mean for Diego Costa? Also will Antonio Conte be backed in the transfer market this summer as we prepare to launch a challenge for more European silverware?
Turning to Stoke, both Chidge and Kerry recognise that this is a tricky and potentially tough fixture for Chelsea – the players will need to be ‘on-it’ from the first whistle. If we win it will make another big statement to our rivals but we predict a close game with the odd goal being the decider. But will it be for Chelsea and will Costa score his 50th Premier League goal in 80 games for Chelsea?
