Chelsea are preparing to face Barnsley in the FA Cup 5th round on Thursday, February 11. The Blues celebrated a 3-1 win over Luton Town, while Barnsley celebrated a 1-0 victory over Norwich City in the 4th round.
Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
“Thomas Tuchel has not lost any of his first four games as Chelsea boss and only conceded one goal – in Sunday’s win over Sheffield United.
“But he’s not really had much of a test yet – Tottenham were terrible when they played them last week – and although Barnsley will make things difficult for the Blues, this is another game he will be expected to win.”
Lawrenson’s prediction: 0-2
