Chelsea learn FA Cup fourth round opponents

Chelsea will face Plymouth Argyle at home in the fourth round of this season’s Emirates FA Cup.

That's the reward for our 5-1 victory over Chesterfield at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, which came courtesy of goals from Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Romelu Lukaku, Andreas Christensen and Hakim Ziyech.

The Blues have not played the Pilgrims since 1989 and the current Plymouth side ply their trade in League One, where they occupy the final play-off place. 

Chelsea are looking to win our first FA Cup trophy since the 2017/18 campaign, where an Eden Hazard penalty ensured we beat Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley.

At this stage last season, the Blues were paired with Luton Town at Stamford Bridge, with a hat-trick from Tammy Abraham ensuring a 3-1 win and our passage into the fifth round.

The ties are set to take place across the weekend of February 4 and February 7. Due to our involvement in the Club World Cup, a date for our fixture will be confirmed in due course.
