Can Newcastle Reach The 5th Round Of The FA Cup?

Newcastle will play at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon (1:30 pm kickoff) in the 4th round of the FA Cup and we have to hope that by then we have at least one new player into the club – in addition to Kenedy.

Newcastle have another vitally important Premier League game the following Wednesday evening against Burnley (7:45 pm KO) at home, so Rafa will not play his best side at Stamford Bridge, and he has to prioritize the Premier League.

But that doesn’t say we cannot field a good side against Chelsea.

We also play at Crystal Palace a week on Sunday (2:15pm KO) so there are two league games in a short four days that will be vital to our survival, and we really need to win both games.

That’s unlikely unless we can start scoring some goals.

First things first and we could shock the Blues on Sunday if we can play somewhere near our best form.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Chelsea?

    Slimani to Chelsea?

    “As Roma continue to deny any agreement with Chelsea over Dzeko, reports suggest the Blues are interested in Islam Slimani – also a target of Newcastle.

    “The Leicester striker was even in the stands at the Emirates for last night’s Carabao Cup semi final clash with Arsenal, further increasing speculation he’s set to join Antonio Conte’s side.” (Chronic)

    Although sitting in 3rd place
    Chelsea have Spurs and Liverpool
    on their heels.

    Conté will want to put space between
    Chelsea and their chasers.

    He will see Bournemouth at the Bridge on Wednesday
    as a big opportunity
    Liverpool are away to Huddersfield
    Spurs have ManU at home

    I think he’ll put a weakened side out against us

    Chelsea will be going all out for it in the FA cup. I fear for our chances.
    The league has to be our priority anyway.

    Jib I think we will do exactly the same though, Wednesday night has to be out main priority, I think there will be a lot of changes to our team on Sunday

    Catchy you have just answered you question its you tube, Shola looked a world beater on there while in reality he was a poor striker, wait until we sign him and he plays before making a judgement that he is no better than mitro

    If Mitro is as bad as rafa seems to think then why won’t he sell him to a relegation rivals?

    If I was trouble causer then I’d be angling for a move away and letting my displeasure known to the world. Like cabaye did and HBA has done!! Especially seeing as it’s a world cup year
