Chelsea vs Morecambe

SUN 10th JAN 2021 – KO 13:30


Chelsea vs

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea host Morecambe at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup, in what should be a fairly straight forward game for the hosts.


Frank Lampard’s team have been in very poor form of late. In their last game, they were beaten 3-1 by Man City which was their third game in a row without a win. A game against League Two Morecambe should put an end to that run.

Chelsea last won the FA Cup in 2018 beating Man United 1-0. There also got to the final last season but were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal.

Frank has a lot of pressure on him at the moment. His side are playing very poorly and on top of this, he has spent a lot of money and right now none of them are proving their worth. An FA Cup trophy at the end of the season would be a welcome return in his second season in charge. 


The team from seventh place in League Two aren’t really given much of a chance this weekend. They will go there looking to enjoy the big occasion and with the slightest hope of a FA Cup upset.

The Shrimps though are in great form of late. They have won their last four games and will be full of confidence, even though they are playing a team three leagues above.

Morecambe’s best FA Cup run is getting to the Third Round, which they are in now. If they managed to beat Chelsea, which would be huge, it would make history for the club.

Team News

Chelsea have fitness doubts over full-back Reece James and defender Andreas Christensen.
