The men in blue seem to be back in a positive vibe since the victory against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Sarri has found a new combination up top but he will have to shuffle the team sheet for the quarter finals against Bournemouth tonight. The English duo of Loftus Cheek and Barkley are expected to start tonight. Eddie Howe’s team have a great potential but I think tonight won’t be one of those nights where they would be able to upset Chelsea. They might trouble the blues with their sharp attack but the blues might be just too much for them. So I predict Chelsea to win this one with a score line of 2-1.
