Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Martin Wickham to look back at the victory away to Leeds, catch up on the Chelsea news and look ahead to the FA Cup final against Liverpool.
In part one, we talk to Liam Twomey from the Athletic to catch up with this week’s Chelsea news, today’s press conference and look back at the 3-0 defeat of Leeds United. A superb result, superb performance with Pulisic impressive, Mount & James at their best and Chalobah finally getting a recall. All this plus Lukaku scoring 3 goals in 2 games. On the downside, Leeds proved that they are still very much Dirty Leeds with Daniel James putting Kovacic out of the game with a horrible tackle. But, more important Chelsea now only need one more win to finish third in the league.
We also discuss today’s press conference – will Kovacic & Kante be fit and Lukaku’s agent causing trouble & will Lukaku start up front?
In part two we welcome back football writer, Tony Evans, for the Opposition View. We ask Tony what he thinks about the Chelsea take over? Liverpool’s FA Cup history; Liverpool’s FA Cup history v Chelsea. How important is the FA Cup to Liverpool fans? Has the FA Cup been devalued? Are Liverpool focussing on the FA Cup, Premier League or Champions League? Will Fabinho be a big miss? What are the key match ups? And how does Tony see it going?
And in part three we preview the 150th FA Cup final and Chelsea’s 16th final. Chidge presents his Team selection; should Lukaku start up front? Who starts in midfield if Kovacic is not fit? We discuss why we love the Cup and Chelsea’s Cup history. The importance of not losing three in a row? How do we beat Liverpool? Cup Final Match Day rituals and how do we see it going.
