Ahead of Thursday’s FA Cup game against Barnsley, former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to beat Barnsley.

The Blues are unbeaten under new boss Thomas Tuchel, winning three games and drawing just one game.

“It’s been so far, so good for Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea,” Owen told BetVictor. “The Blues certainly look more solid and come into this with their tails up after a good run of results.

“Barnsley will be hoping Chelsea will have an off day here and even if that was the case they’d need to be at their very best.

“I can only see this one going one way, and that’s with Chelsea being in the draw for the quarter-finals.”
