The Londoners should be able to take advantage of playing a home to ensure they make it to the next round with ease

Stamford Bridge is the venue of the FA Cup fourth round tie between Chelsea and Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday evening.

The Blues are very much in contention for honours in cup competitions and this they got close to after seeing off Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup semis on Thursday.

With the FA Cup presenting Mauricio Sarri another opportunity to win silverware in his first season in charge in England, Chelsea are favourites to win here at odds of (1.22) with Bet365.

The Owls might have gone past Luton Town in the previous round but they are in for a one tough ride this time.

Indeed, Chelsea have eliminated them in eight of the previous 10 times they’ve met in the FA Cup and are thus clear underdogs with the same bet firm at (13.00).

A draw isn’t something that is envisaged here but seeing that the FA Cup is full of shocks, it’s (7.50) for a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes.
