With Stamford Chidge struck down by Covid, Dean Mears takes the helm and is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dayne Whittle and Liam Twomey from the Athletic to look back to Chelsea’s Champions’ League defeat to Real Madrid and ahead to the FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace.

In part one, we discuss the latest news from the Chelsea takeover, with the Ricketts withdrawing their bid, Liam Twomey explains what it all means.

In part two, we discuss the honourable defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions’ League. A Tuchel masterclass with some superb performances and some surprisingly good ones too.

In part three, we wrap up by looking ahead to the FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace. Is Palace’s form anything to worry about? What will Tuchel’s team be? Will extra time on Wednesday and disappointment be an issue? Is Antony Taylor the biggest threat? And how do we see it going and what are our predictions?
