Chelsea vs Plymouth Argyle prediction and odds: Thomas Tuchel side in for easy FA Cup ride at Stamford Bridge



Chelsea find themselves with yet another potential banana skin moment in the FA Cup as they welcome Plymouth Argyle to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The Blues are the favourites at 1/18 with Grosvenor Sport while Plymouth are a huge 35/1 to produce a shock at Stamford Bridge and a draw is 23/2.

Thomas Tuchel side saw off National League side Chesterfield in the third round while Plymouth saw off Sheffield Wednesday, Rochdale and Birmingham City after extra-time to get the glamour tie with the European champions.

With the FIFA Club World Cup just round the corner, Tuchel has plenty to consider in terms of rotation without undermining Argyle’s ability to cause an upset in the domestic cup competition.

With the club looking like outsiders in the Premier League title race, a chance for domestic cup success might save a few blushes at Chelsea.

  • In 36 matches involving Chelsea in all competitions, 16 of them have finished with both teams scoring while for Plymouth it is 22 from 37 – no on both teams to score is 7/20

Players to watch

Five goals from five goalscorers helped Chelsea beat Chesterfield comfortably at home and I am expecting something similar again this weekend at Stamford Bridge.

For me, I will back someone like Timo Werner. I feel his pace will be too much for Plymouth’s defence to handle so expect him to find the net at 19/20 anytime.
