Milton Keynes (UK): Chelsea's dismal Premier League title defence means the FA Cup now carries even greater significance as interim manager Guus Hiddink attempts to avoid a trophy-free end to the season.

Hiddink’s side travel to struggling second-tier side Milton Keynes Dons in the competition’s fourth round today. With next month’s Champions League last 16 game against Paris Saint-Germain looming, the FA does not represent the Stamford Bridge club’s last chance of silverware.
But it is probably their most realistic chance of salvaging a trophy from a calamitous campaign and Hiddink is keen to repeat his success of 2009, when he led the club to FA Cup success against Everton.
