THE PREDICTION

Since the departure of Frank Lampard and appointment of new head coach Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have enjoyed a change of fortunes on the pitch. The Blues have conceded just one goal under Tuchel so far, having also won their last three matches. Here they travel to Championship side Barnsley, who beat Norwich 1-0 to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Tykes are a fearless outfit full of young players with energy who will attempt to play an attractive style of football in an attempt to cause an upset. However, Chelsea are starting to show signs of really clicking as a unit heading into the business stage of the campaign and with Tuchel likely eying up the prospect of his first trophy as Chelsea manager coming in this competition, the visitors should prove too strong for Barnsley at Oakwell.
