Chelsea are still in the FA Cup after drawing 0-0 against Aston Villa; both will have a replay next week. They will play in the EFL Cup final against Liverpool later this month as well.

Chelsea will need to win these two trophies and qualify for the Champions League next season to generate money. Although they did spend over a billion in transfers over the past few transfer windows, the club is close to breaching Financial Fair Play rules unless they make sales this summer.
