Barnsley to follow their good run with an upset
Barnsley has not been in good form in recent matches but they need to be at their best as they host a resurgent Chelsea at Oakwell on Thursday. The two clubs met earlier this season in the EFL cup and Chelsea came out victorious then 6-0.
Barnsley beat Tranmere 2-0 and Norwich 1-0 to reach this stage. They have one win in five matches in all competitions. At home, Barnsley have won three of their five games
Chelsea looking set to qualify
The Blues reached this round after beating Morecambe 4-0 and Luton 3-1. Under new manager Tuchel they won three matches and drew one in their four Premier League matches.
It is a very good start for the German manager and he will be keen to continue that form coming into this game and qualify for the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.
- Chelsea have seven wins in eight FA Cup Matches
- Barnsley have one win in five matches
- Chelsea are unbeaten in five matches
- Barnsley have failed to score in three of their last five matches
Barnsley vs Chelsea Prediction
It will be a difficult match for Barnsley, especially with their current form as they are struggling in the Championship in recent games.
Chelsea on the other hand have found themselves under Tuche and with their great form in the league and FA Cup, this should be an easy encounter for them.
With The Blues likely to control the game from start to finish, we predict Chelsea will score in both halves.
