Morecambe have won four on the spin and find themselves in the League Two play-off spots.

Chelsea have only won one of their last seven matches and the pressure is definitely mounting on Frank Lampard.

Despite the two clubs’ contrasting recent form, the gulf in talent between them makes it difficult to look past anything but convincing Chelsea win.

Chelsea vs Morecambe: Recommended bets

Both teams to score. Morecambe have found the back of the net in 17 consecutive matches. Even if they’re well beaten on Sunday, it wouldn’t be a shock to see them get on the scoresheet against this Chelsea side.

Tammy Abraham to score. Abraham has not featured in Chelsea’s last two matches and is expected to be recalled to the starting eleven. Abraham has three goals in his last two appearances.

Chelsea vs Morecambe: FA Cup preview

Chelsea welcome League Two side Morecambe to Stamford Bridge for their FA Cup third round tie on Sunday.

Morecambe moved up to 7th in the League Two table following their 3-1 home win over Grimsby Town on Boxing Day. Carlos Gomes (2) and Adam Phillips were on the scoresheet.

The Shrimpers have won four on the spin and five of their last six, earning manager Derek Adams the League Two manager of the month award for December.

Morecambe beat Maldon & Tiptree 1-0 in the first round, before requiring extra-time to see past Solihull Moors 4-2 in the second round.

Chelsea lost 3-1 at home to Manchester City in their opening match of 2021. The Blues were already 3-0 down at the break and never looked like taking anything from the match. Callum Hudson-Odoi came off the bench to score a stoppage-time consolation goal.

The Blues are 9th in the table on 26 points from 17 matches. Chelsea have failed to win any of their last three matches, and defeat on Sunday would surely cost Frank Lampard his job.

Most of Chelsea’s poor form has come away from home, however. Last week’s defeat was their first loss at Stamford Bridge in 13 matches, so they should have no problems against League Two opposition on Sunday.

Chelsea have won the FA Cup eight times in their history, most recently in 2018.

Chelsea team news vs Morecambe

Frank Lampard is set to make wholesale changes to his starting eleven.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to replace Edouard Mendy in goal, while Antonio Rudiger and Emerson Palmieri should start in defence.

Billy Gilmour, Kai Havertz, and Callum Hudson-Odoi should also be handed further minutes.

N’Golo Kante will serve a suspension after picking up his fifth caution of the season against Man City.

Reece James remains sidelined with “a small hamstring problem”, while Andreas Christensen misses out with a knee injury.

Timo Werner has gone 12 matches without a goal and could use a confidence boost against lower league opposition – that said, he may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Marco van Ginkel has returned to full training following an extremely long injury layoff, but the midfielder is still a while away from being match fit.

Morecambe team news vs Chelsea

The Shrimpers have not played since Boxing Day and will be well-rested for this huge game.

Carlos Mendes Gomes was nominated for the League Two player of the month award for December after scoring five goals in six appearances.

Cole Stockton could lead Morecambe’s attack.
