Chelsea hosts Morecambe at the Stamford Bridge in a match from the third round of the FA Cup. Are you ready to preview this game with us in our football prediction betting tips today?
Last season Chelsea reached the FA Cup finals, but they suffered a defeat from the hands of Arsenal and didn’t win the trophy. Now the Blues could make another try to get the gold medals, but it won’t be easy – there’s some serious competition here.
Chelsea’s manager Frank Lampard is a man with some problems at the moment. His team is in a poor form right now as Chelsea won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions. There are some rumours that Lampard is now close to getting the sack despite being a club legend. If something bad happens against Morecambe most probably Lampard will go.
In their last game Chelsea faced Manchester City in the Premier League, but made a poor performance and suffered a dissapointing 1-3 defeat. This made Lampard’s situation in the club even more complicated.
On theory Morecambe should not cause any problems to Chelsea, especially in London. Right now Morecambe are playing in League Two – the 4th tier of English football. They are currently 7th in the League Two standings and reached the third round of the FA Cup after wins against Maldon & Tiptree and Solhull Moors.
Most likely Frank Lampard will rotate his line-up compared to the game against Manchester City last weekend. Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Billy Gilmour, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud could return to the starting eleven. Jorginho is another option for Lampard in the midfield area.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the FA Cup match between Chelsea and Morecambe from the third round of the competition. This should not be a problem for the Blues, but let’s see.
