Thomas Tuchel have made a bold statement during his Chelsea press conference today which he started that his team is playing to win the Emirates FA Cup as the Blues will be going up against Barnsley tomorrow night.

Thomas Tuchel is confident in his players and believes Chelsea will win the Emirates FA Cup as they go head to head against Barnsley tomorrow night with a chances of advancing to the quarter final of the competition.
The Blues will be hoping they can get through and maybe get a favourable next round opponent with the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City and Leicester City still on the competition.
Thomas Tuchel reports that Chelsea are playing to win the FA Cup and will need to be focused tomorrow. He adds there are likely to be many team changes as players not playing deserve chances and this is the third away game in a row so fresh legs and minds are needed.#BARCHE

Chelsea will be going up against Barnsley which is a familiar side they played against earlier this season in the Carabao cup which they won by 6nil and Kai Havertz getting a hat trick in that game.
Tomorrow’s encounter favors the Blues more as they will be looking to thrash them once again and move on to the next round of the competition.
Chelsea also will be welcoming NGolo Kante back to the squad as Thiago Silva is out of the game still recovering from his muscle injury which kept him out for few games.
Hakim Ziyech is also confirmed to be on the team that will be facing Barnsley tomorrow after being out for a period of games since Thomas Tuchel taking over as manager of the club.
