Chelsea have drawn Morecambe at home in the third round of the FA Cup. The third round will be played between the 8th and the 11th of January.
The Blues got exactly what they would have wanted – an easy home game where they can hopefully progress without needing to use too many of their starting XI.
The winter period is going to be especially tough this time around, and this weekend off will be a blessed relief for Frank Lampard at and his team.
Derek Adams’ Morecambe are currently 14th in League 2, and will face a tough task against high flying Chelsea.
Lampard won the trophy four times as a player, and also guided this side to the final last season. We’re all hoping that they can go one further this time around.
Who knows, by the time May comes around, we may even have a full Wembley to enjoy it from.
