Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd and Mark Meehan to look ahead to Chelsea’s FA Cup 3rd round tie against Morecombe FC on Sunday.

Liam Twomey from The Athletic joins us to talk about the press talk of Frank Lampard coming under pressure from the Chelsea board. Why was the story published right after the final whistle after defeat to City? How serious is the pressure from the Board? Who are the disgruntled players? What does this mean for Chelsea’s long term plan and has the story of Lampard’s imminent departure been walked back this week?

In this week’s ‘Opposition View’ we have more of a Spy in the Camp than a someone from the opposition as Jon Parkinson, Chelsea fan and long time listener to the FanCast joins us to give us the lowdown on Morecombe. Jon is a Morecombe local and knows more about the League Two side than we will ever know!

Finally, we preview the match focusing on which of the youngsters might start, shoudl Werner and Havertz start to regain some confidence and we look at Chelsea’s 3rd round record down the years.
