Crisis club Chelsea travel to Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Saturday in a game already dripping with controversy.

The Championship side did not take kindly to their Premier League counterparts’ request to play the game behind closed doors following the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea will only be able to take around 500 fans up to the North East with them and, while they would usually be strong favourites, face a difficult task.

Boro certainly boast quality, knocking both Manchester United and Tottenham on their way to the quarter-finals and that – coupled with the hostile atmosphere Chelsea are likely to walk into – make it a hugely difficult game.

Here’s everything you need to know.
