Barnsley vs Chelsea

The FA Cup 5th round action will draw to a close on Thursday evening.

The final tie of the week will see Chelsea face a trip to Championship outfit, Barnsley.

The Londoners will no doubt head into the tie brimming with confidence after a fine start to life under new boss, Thomas Tuchel.

The German’s latest clash in the Chelsea dugout saw the Blues beat Sheffield United 2-1.

This took Tuchel’s record to three wins and one draw as Chelsea manager, with that winning run no doubt set to extend this week against lower-league opposition.

Thomas Tuchel on Chelsea’s links to Haaland & Upamecano

Ahead of the Barnsley game, Thomas Tuchel held his latest press conference on Thursday afternoon.

The former PSG man discussed a number of topics in the presser, including transfer speculation.

Chelsea have been linked with both RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano and Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland in recent months.

But when quizzed on these links ahead of Barnsley, the Chelsea boss gave little away:

“I can understand the interest of every fan and supporter to talk about these subjects. But now is February. There is a long way to go. I will not talk about other players publicly where they are under contract. This is the respect we show.”
