Wolves’ reward for securing an incredible FA Cup upset at Anfield on Saturday, where they emerged 2-1 victors against Liverpool, was an even more difficult prospect as they’re set to face-off against Chelsea in the fifth round.
Antonio Conte’s Blues side have excelled this season in the Premier League and have avoided any slip-ups in their FA Cup fixtures so far. Whilst they will have to travel to the Molineux, the top-flight leaders will be expected and confident of sealing a spot in the fifth round.
Having avoided a potentially difficult clash against a top-six rival, Chelsea fans were pleased with another favourable draw handed their way and seem optimistic of the side’s chances of sealing a place in the quarter-finals, which would put them just one win away from Wembley.
Wolves will be confident after their dramatic win over Liverpool but the task will certainly be difficult and there isn’t too many Chelsea fans fearing an upset.
Would've been Liverpool v Chelsea unfortunately we've got a harder draw in Wolves v Chelsea

FA Cup 5th round draw: Wolves v Chelsea. Fair trip and winnable. Pants away section, but hopefully better in the cup.
