Middlesbrough vs Chelsea, FA Cup 5th Round: Open Thread

middlesbrough Middlesbrough vs Chelsea, FA Cup 5th Round: Open Thread

Chelsea plays Middlesbrough today at the Riverside Stadium in the north east of England. A win for the Blues today and they’ll play Manchester United in the sixth round. If it’s a draw, it’ll be another fixture added to Chelsea’s already congested fixture schedule.

Chelsea’s match against Boro comes under increasing pressure for Rafa Benitez after it was revealed that there was a bust-up on the training pitch earlier this week. Benitez will want noting more than a victory tonight so the talking points can focus on what’s happening on the pitch rather than off it.

For readers in the United States, the match will be shown live today on FOX Soccer at 2:45pm ET.
