Chelsea will host Leeds in the 5th round of FA Cup

The eight-time FA Cup winners Chelsea will square off against Leeds United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday, 28 February 2024 at Stamford Bridge, Fulham. The 11th-placed side in the EPL, the Blues just suffered a painful defeat against Liverpool in the final of the Carabao Cup on Sunday night (25th February 2024) by losing 0-1. Now, Mauricio Pochettino's men are shifting their focus to the match against the Whites in the last 16 of the FA Cup when they host the 2nd division team, they are required to win and qualify for the next round.

The Blues are without a win in two games in all competitions and have three defeats in their last six games. Chelsea has been too inconsistent throughout the season and they have been waiting for a trophy in this competition since 2018. At Stamford Bridge, they are on a run of two games without a win. Chelsea just won two matches in the last 5 matches which they played in all competitions.

Leeds has been in stunning form since the start of this year, the Whites are unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions, have won 11 games in that run, and are on a six-game winning streak. They defeated Leicester on Friday in the EFL Championship and they are now just seven points behind in the table. In the last 12 games, Daniel Farke's men have kept eight clean sheets, which is very impressive. The second place in the EFL Championship Leeds' four out of the last 6 games ended with more than 2.5 goals. Away from home, the Whites are on a six-game winning streak and have scored two or more goals in five games the last time Leeds was in the 6th round of the FA Cup was in the 2002/03 season.

It is going to be a good contest between two English sides but it seems like Leeds United might have the upper hand in this match when they visit Stamford Bridge keeping their current performance in mind, however, we back Chelsea to win this match at home and secure the berth for the next round.
