Chelsea will be away at the KCOM Stadium for our FA Cup fourth round tie against Hull City on Saturday evening.

The Blues got to this stage of the competition after beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the third round. Hull City were 3-2 winners against 10-man Rotherham United in the previous round.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen is backing Chelsea to see out this game into the FA Cup fifth round.

“Frank Lampard and his Chelsea team will be kicking themselves for not taking all three points against 10-man Arsenal at the Bridge midweek, and they are likely to be without Tammy Abraham for the trip to Hull after the striker limped off the field at the end of a pulsating derby,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Tigers have lost their last couple and failed to score in those league defeats, and I expect the Blues to make serene progress at a sold-out KCOM Stadium.”

While Chelsea got a 2-2 draw with Arsenal over the weekend, Hull suffered a 1-0 loss to Frank Lampard’s former club Derby County at the weekend.
