Chelsea have to beat Leicester City in the FA Cup on Saturday to keep hopes of winning silverware this season.

The Blues were dumped out of the Champions League on Wednesday after the 3-0 loss to Barcelona at the Nou Camp, and will be away to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday for a quarterfinal showdown.

Michael Owen doesn’t think Chelsea will win this game, but Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has backed the Blues to win the game.

The Blues take on Leicester in the FA cup quarter-final on Sunday and Merson is tipping them to return to winning ways.

He said: “This is a hard game to call but I fancy Chelsea, despite Leicester’s heavy win at struggling West Brom.

“Chelsea had their moments at Barcelona and their fans cannot be too disappointed because they had a go, unlike United the night before.

“Things could well have been different had they been more clinical. If Chelsea play anything like they did over the two legs against Barca, they’ll beat Leicester.”
