Chelsea fans believe that their side will reach Wembley when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this afternoon in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.
The 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 English Premier League champions come together in a clash which Chelsea will ultimately be expected to win, particularly after exiting the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
Ahead of the match, we asked Blues fans whether they think Chelsea will return to winning ways in The Midlands. Fans voted in their usual numbers with 89% opting for an away win and 11% for a home success. No votes were cast in favour of the draw.
In a second fan poll, we asked fans how many goals they think Antonio Conte’s men will net against Leicester City. One goal and two or three goals both received 44% of the votes each while the remaining 12% of voters believe that The Blues could score four or more. All voters expect the home defence to be breached.
Finally, after coming under pressure for his performance against Barcelona, we asked whether goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois should be rested against The Foxes. Fans believe that this wouldn’t be a bad idea with 83% opting for a recall for Willy Caballero.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4.30pm and will be screened live on BBC One.
