Chelsea will learn their FA Cup fourth round opponents on Monday evening when the draw takes place.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side advanced to the fourth round following a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Preston North End at Stamford Bridge.

Three goals in the space of 11 minutes from Armando Broja, Thiago Silva and Raheem Sterling sent Chelsea on their way to knocking out the Championship side in the capital.

Enzo Fernandez added a fourth in the closing stages to round off a much-improved second half display after a below-par first 45 minutes, which was criticised by Pochettino post-match.
