Chelsea Team News & Preview
Chelsea host Peterborough in the FA Cup this weekend and the Blues will be desperate for a win here.
Their 13-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end on Wednesday when they were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham. Antonio Conte will be demanding a response from his side now and the Blues will be eyeing a big win on Sunday.
Chelsea are already out of the League Cup and will want to win the FA Cup. They were unconvincing against the lower league sides earlier this season (against Bristol) and will need to take Peterborough seriously.
John Terry is the only injury problem for Antonio Conte. The Italian is expected to rest some of his key players for the cup game.
Predicted Chelsea Starting Lineup (3-4-3): Begovic; Ivanovic, Zouma, Luiz; Aina, Chalobah, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Batshuayi, Willian
Peterborough Team News & Preview
Peterborough will be aware of Chelsea’s inconsistencies in the cup competitions this season and will fancy their chances of an upset.

Peterborough are in good form as well and have won 10 of their last 17 in all competitions and have only lost three of those. Away from home they have won four of their last six and will look to give the Blues a run for their money.
Jack Baldwin is the only injury worry for the away side this weekend.
Predicted Peterborough Starting Lineup (4-3-1-2): McGee; Smith, Tafazolli, Bostwick, Hughes; Forrester, Lopes, Edwards; Maddison; Couthirst, Nichols
