Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes winning the FA Cup this season will do wonders for the team as it can springboard Chelsea to Premier League and European triumphs.

“It would be brilliant for Tuchel and brilliant for the Chelsea fans as it was painful last season,” Nevin told the Daily Star ahead of the FA Cup quarterfinal tie with Sheffield United.

“They didn’t perform at their best in the final against Arsenal 12 months ago.

“But if Tuchel managed to win the competition and this group of players got their first trophy, remember what Mourinho used to say?

“It makes you believe and know that you can do it.

“If Kai Havertz and Timo Werner get that silverware, this will then feel like a real team.

“They’ll have a bond and be a group of winners. It’ll make a massive difference. Securing the FA Cup could be a real turning point for them.”
