Opposition view: Gianfranco Zola

26 January 2019

Gianfranco Zola says Chelsea cannot take Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round tie lightly.

The Blues are strong favourites for the cup clash at Stamford Bridge but assistant manager Zola expects the tie to be anything but straight forward.

Chelsea are likely to make changes after progressing to the final of the Carabao Cup on Thursday, where they overcame Tottenham on penalties.

The Chelsea legend said: “'It won't be easy because we have to go and play after a performance like that (against Tottenham).

“I love the Championship. You find teams that no matter if they are 16th or top of the table, you will always have a game when you play them.

“We have only one day to prepare, so it will be an interesting one.”
