Chelsea are expected to progress to the Fifth Round of this season’s FA Cup by beating Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.
The Blues suffered an agonising Carabao Cup exit at the semi-final stage on Wednesday evening with a 2-1 aggregate loss to Arsenal and attentions now turn to the FA Cup.
Ahead of the fixture against The Magpies, we asked Blues fans whether Chelsea will beat Newcastle United. Most fans think that this is likely with 77% opting for a home win while 17% believe that the match could be drawn. Just 6% anticipate an away win with Chelsea being undefeated at home so far in 2018.
In a second fan poll, we asked the Chelsea faithful how many goals they think their side will score in the match. Two or three goals was the most favourable outcome with 52% of the votes while 9% fancy The Blues to score four or more. Just 9% anticipate Newcastle United to record a rare clean sheet at The Bridge while 30% think that Antonio Conte’s men will score once.
Finally, with Chelsea now out of the Carabao Cup and well behind in the race for the English Premier League title, we asked whether the FA Cup holds The Blues’ best chance of success this season. Many fans feel that this is the case with 70% voting that Chelsea have the best chance of lifting the FA Cup.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 1.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on BT Sport 2.
