Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is under no illusions about their upcoming FA Cup quarter fina clashl against Sheffield United.
Chelsea saw off Barsnley to move into the quarter finals, and now take on a team they narrowly defeat a few days ago.
But Thomas Tuchel knows that facing the Blades will be a huge challenge, even if they are bottom of the Premier League at present.
“Last Sunday I said afterwards that it felt like a cup game and they played it like that, and I was very happy we adapted in the way we did and accepted this challenge, because it was a very intense game and we took away a deserved win,” said Tuchel to reporters.
“It was hard for us to win and it will be hard to play against them but it is the quarter-final of the most prestigious cup competition in the world.
“We are happy that we can play them at Stamford Bridge because it saves us a lot of travel but we will prepare for another intense game and we will be ready, I am absolutely convinced.”
