Chelsea host Leeds in an FA Cup fifth-round tie today, Wednesday, February 28, that reeks of nostalgia. Older fans may remember the brutal 1970 final replay – the last time these two teams met in the competition – ending 2-1 in Chelsea's favor. You can watch FA Cup games from anywhere


Three days on from defeat in the League Cup final, Chelsea have one more chance to salvage some silverware from another dispiriting season. Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate for his side to prove their doubters wrong. The Blues' 3-1 defeat of Aston Villa in the fourth round was arguably their performance of the season and much rests on top scorer Cole Palmer's precocious young shoulders for the eight-time winners.


Marching on together, Leeds are unbeaten in 2024, on a nine-game winning run in the league and four points off the Championship's summit after Friday's 3-1 defeat of table-topping Leicester. After a shaky start, Daniel Farke has got the Whites purring, with Crysencio Summerville firing 16 goals in all competitions and 17-year-old academy youth product Archie Gray, whose great-uncle Eddie played in that 1970 final, impressing many with his buccaneering right-back runs. Willy Gnonto has also found some with five goals in his last six games in all competitions and the Yorkshire side will go to Stamford Bridge seeking to maintain their momentum.


Christopher Nkunku will be out for three to four weeks after a fresh injury blow, while all of Thiago Silva, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Lesley Ugochukwu, Romeo Lavia, Carney Chukwuemeka and Benoit Badiashile also unavailable for selection on account of injuries.


Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez, who was in the matchday squad against Liverpool in Sunday's cup final, could start in goal, with the likes of Trevoh Chalobah, Alfie Gilchrist, Noni Madueke and Mykhaylo Mudryk expected to start against Leeds.


Nkunku's void would force Cole Palmer to continue in the XI, as Cesare Casadei is cup-tied.


The Whites' boss Daniel Parke will miss the likes of Karl Darlow, Pascal Struijk and Stuart Dallas through injuries, while Georginio Rutter, Crysencio Summerville and Patrick Bamford remain in doubts due to their respective issues.


Sam Byram is likely to be available for selection after making it back in training following a leg injury, while Daniel James is also expected to shake off his niggle.


Ethan Ampadu can see himself in the XI against his former side.


Chelsea take on historic rivals Leeds United in the fifth-round of the FA Cup with a place in the quarter-finals at stake. The Blues welcome their Championship opponents to Stamford Bridge just three days after being defeated in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.


Leeds, on the other hand, have won 11 of their last 12 games in all competitions. Having beaten table-toppers Leicester City on Friday night, Daniel Farke's side have cut the gap to first down to six points. Leeds will now be hoping to take advantage of their form as they visit an out of sorts Chelsea side.


Mauricio Pochettino, who is under extreme pressure from supporters once more following a catastrophic extra-time performance at Wembley on Sunday, is wary of the threat the visitors can pose. "It is going to be tough," he said on Tuesday ahead of the game.


"I think tomorrow [Wednesday], four or five thousand fans. I understand the disappointment from our fans but we need their help, as always. I'm sorry to ask again but I think it is important to create a good atmosphere.


The Blues fell short in their bid to win a first trophy under both Todd Boehly and Mauricio Pochettino, as Virgil van Dijk’s 118th-minute header gave Liverpool a dramatic Carabao Cup final win on Sunday.


It was a huge chance for Chelsea to pick up some silverware, against a Liverpool side down to the bare bones amid an injury crisis, but they missed out and their season is now on the line against Wednesday night.


Chelsea sit 11th in the Premier League, so the success of the rest of their campaign rests on whether they can book another trip to Wembley.


It is sure to be a brilliant atmosphere for Leeds’ visit. Daniel Farke’s side are in superb form, on a six-match winning run and unbeaten in their last 12 games.


Victory last time out over Championship leaders Leicester leaves Leeds just six points off the Foxes, as they look to earn promotion back to the Premier League.


Chelsea will hope to have Thiago Silva available, after he missed the Carabao Cup final with a groin problem. Marc Cucurella is also closing in on a return, but Reece James and Romeo Lavia are among those still out.


Christopher Nkunku came off the bench at Wembley but has since been ruled out with a fresh injury, with Noni Madueke an option should Pochettino opt to shuffle his pack.


For Leeds, Patrick Bamford recovered from a calf injury to score as a substitute against Leicester, and he could replace Joel Piroe in the starting lineup. Sam Byram is pushing to return from a hamstring issue, but Pascal Struijk remains unavailable. Dan James should also be fit.


Chelsea looked incredibly tired in extra time against Liverpool, but they must find a way to go again just a few days after the heartbreak of those 120 minutes at Wembley.
