Chelsea to win 2-0 @ 23/4 with 888 Sport

Chelsea laid down a marker to Southampton when they clashed at St Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League just last week, and they should come into this game as favourites to progress as a result. Mark Hughes is running out of time to save the Saints from relegation, and that was never clearer than when the Blues recovered from 2-0 to win 3-2. All the goals came in just eight minutes, too.


They meet again at Wembley this weekend, and it is possible that Hughes’ men could play with a freedom they have not been able to in the league all season. But with Eden Hazard and two-goal hero Olivier Giroud freshly confident, and Chelsea needing an FA Cup win to distract from a poor season overall, it is tough to see a way through for Southampton.

We are backing the Blues to coast through without too many problems.
