    Benitez’s record has been outstanding in times of playing league cups, so I think the match will favour Chelsea 3-1

    Chelsea’s records in fa cup in the last 6 years have been outstanding including wins over Tottenham and Livepool in the semi and final of last year’s fa cup tie respectively, so I think the match will favour Chelsea 3-1
