Chelsea face off against Championship side MK Dons at Stadium MK this Sunday for a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Blues are still buzzing from a sterling 1-0 win over Arsenal on the road last weekend and will be looking to push on in one of only competitions offering a genuine chance of silverware this season.

Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Branislav Ivanovic have enjoyed returns to form in recent weeks, which will no doubt boost Chelsea's chances of continuing their glittering record in the FA Cup, a title they've claimed four times in the last decade.

The weekend's opposition haven't enjoyed the of campaigns in the English second tier, though, as they sit 20th on the Championship table after 28 games.


MK Dons Team News

Karl Robinson will be without the services of Carl Baker (ankle), Matthew Upson (hamstring) and Ben Reeves (thigh). George Baldock is cup-tied, while Nicky Maynard (hamstring) is a major doubt for the visit of the reigning Premier League champions.

MK Dons Starting XI Prediction

Martin | Spence, McFadzean, Kay, Lewington | Potter, Carruthers | Hall, Williams, Murphy | Church

Score Prediction

It was this stage of last season's FA Cup when we bowed out following an atrocious performance against Bradford City. If we perform anything like that in this fixture, it would be whole undeserved if we snuck through to the fifth round.

The last few weeks suggest the Chelsea team have clicked under Hiddink, so it would be a major blip if we slipped up against MK Dons, even on the road. Our hosts haven't really been at the races so far this season and although anything can happen in cup competition, we should be beating them.

Enough of our top players, including Fabregas and Costa, have proven to have shaken off the appalling form preceding them this season, which should give us hope of winning games like these even when we aren't firing on all cylinders.

I'll think this one will end 2-0 in favour of the Blues. What are your score predictions?
