The Blues take on the Magpies in London at the weekend as they attempt to book their place in the next round of the competition

Chelsea continue their quest for FA Cup glory when they welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge in the fourth round on Sunday.

Antonio Conte's side saw their Carabao Cup hopes dashed at the semi-final stage by Arsenal during the week and they will be eager to respond with a positive result at home.

The Blues have already beaten the Magpies at the venue this season, with Eden Hazard starring in a 3-1 win back in December, and Conte will demand a repeat of that on Sunday.

However, Rafa Benitez's men come into the tie well rested, having had no mid-week cup game to concern themselves with, and they will be eager for revenge.

GAME PREVIEW


Antonio Conte Chelsea Arsenal

Having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and with Manchester City likely to win the Premier League, Chelsea have two avenues to silverware left to seriously pursue. One of those routes is via the Champions League, where Barcelona wait in the last-16, and the other is through the FA Cup, where Newcastle United stand in their way this Sunday.

Conte steered the Blues to the league title in his maiden campaign at the helm, but has been left frustrated this season, particularly in terms of recruitment - in both the summer and winter transfer windows. However, winning a trophy will be at least one silver-lining for the Italian and he will be determined to deliver, particularly having lost in the final of the competition last term.

Chelsea easily overcame Benitez's side when they faced off at Stamford Bridge at the beginning of December with Hazard putting in a dominant display. The Belgium international has shouldered a lot of the burden in the Blues attack, with injuries to the likes of Alvaro Morata, and should be the focal point again on Sunday.

They required a replay and penalties to overcome Norwich City in the last round, but the competition has since taken on greater significance and regardless of what happened when they last met, Conte will certainly not be taking the Magpies lightly.
