Chris Sutton predicts correct score for Chelsea vs Leicester City FA Cup

Chris Sutton has made his prediction for the upcoming FA Cup meeting between Chelsea and Leicester City.

The Blues will host the championship club at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with the hope of moving on to the next round of the tournament.

If Chelsea can win the quarter-final game against Leicester City which takes place on Sunday, Chelsea will actually be closer to the final, where they will have another shot at winning a trophy this season after losing the Carabao Cup to Liverpool last month.

While giving his prediction for the match earlier this week, Paul Merson revealed he was backing the Blues for a home win, and Sutton has now done the same thing.

The pundit told BBC Sport: “At the moment there is quite a lot of negativity from Chelsea fans towards the club’s owners as well as manager Mauricio Pochettino, and I don’t think that is going to change whatever they do in the league between now and the end of the season. But they can still finish the season on a high with the FA Cup, where they have a good record in recent seasons…

“Chelsea have got home advantage here and I also just wonder how Leicester manager Enzo Maresca will approach this game. His side are still top of the Championship but they have had a bit of a wobble recently, with only one win in their past five league games. Maresca’s focus will definitely be on their automatic promotion bid…

“Chelsea had to battle to see off another high-flying Championship side, Leeds, in the last round but I can see them winning this one pretty comfortably.

“Sutton’s prediction: 3-0.”
