class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Frank Lampard's men eased past Morecambe in the last stage of the FA Cup but our tipster is expecting a much tougher task in the fourth round
Chelsea will be hoping to avoid an FA Cup upset when they welcome Championship side Luton Town to Stamford Bridge in the fourth round on Sunday.
The Blues eased past Morecambe 4-0 in the last round but that is just one of three wins in their last 10 outings in all competitions, with their most recent fixture a 2-0 loss at Leicester City.
Chelsea vs Luton Town Latest Odds
Chelsea have progressed in 51 of their last 53 FA Cup ties against lower league opposition and bet365 make them 1/6 (1.16) to do so again here.
Luton have won three out of their last four games across league and cup fixtures but are out at 14/1 (15.0) to stun last season’s runners-up.
A draw will mean extra-time and potentially penalties at Stamford Bridge, with that scenario priced at 6/1 (7.0).
Chelsea vs Luton Town Team News
N’Golo Kante could return after missing the last three games with a thigh injury, but this fixture will likely come too soon for Olivier Giroud.
Tom Lockyer is suspended for the Hatters after seeing red against Brentford on Wednesday.
Chelsea vs Luton Town Preview
The win over League Two Morecambe in the last round has done little to disguise the fact that Frank Lampard’s men have been seriously out-of-form in recent weeks.
Tuesday’s Premier League loss at Leicester made it five defeats from their last 10 matches, during which time they have scored 13 goals and netted more than once against only West Ham and Morecambe.
Although Chelsea should have enough to progress, it will certainly not be straightforward against a Luton side that has kept five clean sheets in their last 10 games and have conceded more than twice in only one of their previous 16 fixtures in all competitions.
Chelsea vs Luton Town Tips and Predictions
This FA Cup fixture will certainly not be an easy one for Chelsea and bet365’s price of 10/11 (1.91) on the Blues scoring under 2.5 goals looks a strong selection for Sunday’s early kick-off.
