Chelsea transfer news has been in overdrive for many months as the takeover of the west London club saw their big-money spending continue, and Graham Potter looks set to see more ins – and surely more outs – as he revamps his team.
Chelsea are eager to refresh and strengthen their expensively assembled squad and they are keen to splash the cash. The 20 teams of the Premier League enter the FA Cup this weekend and two tournament favorites tangle Sunday when Chelsea visits Manchester City.
Chelsea’s lost the last three FA Cup Finals and Graham Potter’s first FA Cup tie will see the Blues wrestling with Pep Guardiola’s serial contenders.
The tie is one of several all-Premier League ties, as Manchester United will host Everton, Southampton goes to Crystal Palace, Wolves are away to Liverpool, and Brentford welcomes West Ham United.
It should be a tasty weekend of matches and surely there’s an upset or two in the cards as the “magic of the FA Cup” takes hold of the United Kingdom.
Will Arsenal be surprised by Oxford United? What about Tottenham when it welcomes Pompey? Newcastle at the Owls of Sheffield Wednesday?
