London – Chelsea can take another step to rehabilitating what had looked set to be a disastrous season when they host Leicester in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Two weeks ago, Chelsea were struggling in the cup, appeared to be on the verge of Champions League elimination and their hopes of finishing in the top four of the Premier League were fading after one win from six matches.
But three straight wins have lifted morale and put the west London club back in contention for all three competitions, with only second-tier Leicester now standing in the way of a Wembley semifinal appearance.
“We proved we're a team and that's what we're all about,” Chelsea captain John Terry said. “That togetherness when it really mattered showed what Chelsea are made of.
“All we can do as players is stick together and do what we do best which is playing football and winning football matches.”
