Match Preview

Championship side MK Dons welcome Premier League champions Chelsea to Stadium MK on Sunday afternoon in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

MK Dons are sitting dangerously close to the relegation zone in the Championship but have only lost twice in their last six outings.

They come into the tie off the back of a 3-1 away defeat to Bolton but will fancy their chances of causing Chelsea some problems this weekend.

Karl Robinson’s side overcame Northampton Town 3-0 in the last round but needed a replay to do so.

Chelsea are now unbeaten in their last eight outings and come into this tie off the back of their 1-0 away win over Arsenal.

Interim boss Guus Hiddink seems to have steadied the ship at Chelsea and will be expecting nothing less than progression after this tie.

Chelsea overcame Scunthrope in the last round and will be looking to give a few first choice names a rest this weekend. Eden Hazard could start after he made an appearance off the bench last time out following his injury troubles.
