It’s the day after the Blues managed to secure a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup, edging past League One side Plymouth Argyle 2-1 after extra-time.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel missed the game after a positive Covid test and now faces a race against time to travel for the Club World Cup next week. Mason Mount is also an injury concern after coming off in extra-time.

Last year’s FA Cup finalists will find out their opponents for the next round today though, so stick around for all the latest updates on that.

There’s also plenty to follow off-the-pitch too, with the Blues preparing their squad for next season. A number of key players have contracts expiring, while there may be potential replacements lined up if agreements can’t be reached.

So, with all of this being said, scroll down for all the latest Chelsea-related updates as and when we get them.
