Michael Owen gives ‘massive’ prediction for Chelsea vs Morecambe

Michael Owen has backed a second-string Chelsea FC side to secure a 6-0 win over Morecambe in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

Chelsea have just once in our last seven games in all competitions but Owen expects the Blues to return to winning ways against Morecambe.

“Chelsea kick off their FA Cup campaign as one of the favourites for the trophy,” Owen told BetVictor.

“It’s fair to say the Blues need a result after a difficult festive period. I’d expect Frank Lampard to make a few changes here so he can rest a few of his bigger names.

“For Morecambe, it’s a great chance to go and play at Stamford Bridge. Let’s hope they give their supporters a performance to be proud of.

“However, at the end of the 90 minutes, I’m confident the Premier League side will go through in comfortable fashion.”
