Chelsea have a huge chance of winning a trophy this season, with the FA Cup currently Chelsea’s best chance of winning silverware this season.

However, to win the FA Cup, Chelsea must beat Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinal clash.

Gunners legend Ian Wright is pleased with the work Tuchel has done and hailed the team. However, Wright believes that the Manchester City team may be too strong for the Chelsea side.

“You feel under this manager, [Hakim] Ziyech the other day, the way he was. Mason Mount is never going to drop,” he told Wrighty’s House.

“He’s an 8/10 performer. N’Golo Kante playing like he plays.

“You think to yourself these players start to really connect, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and they get the striker nicking those goals, then City should be afraid.

“But the way City are playing with their free-flowing football. You go into that game and City can have five or ten minutes and it’s over.

“Chelsea you feel like they could do what they do, play the ball up to the final third, they can’t afford to continue to miss chances.”

Wright then added: “I’m going to probably go Leicester vs City [in the final]. As much as Chelsea are doing great stuff, City and what they’re doing, this time here is their best time since he’s been there.

“They can probably go on to win the Champions League, if I’m being totally honest. If there’s any season it could happen, if he has that talk with them, it could be this one.”
