FA Cup: Southampton v Chelsea Tickets

 Subs may include Paulo Ferreira, Ryan Bertand, Marko Marin and Daniel Sturridge.

Eighteen-year-old Gustavo Lucas Domingues Piazón, known simply as Lucas Piazón is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Chelsea may have talked himself out of starting as he was quoted as saying:

"We lacked character and a love for the shirt. Nobody wanted the ball. At least Oscar tried.

"The team lacked willing. You don't go into a final without the desire to play the ball, that's unacceptable."

Chelsea boss, Rafa Benitez has history with Leeds manager Neil Warnock.

Warnock claims he has been threatened with legal action by the Spaniard. Warnock blames Benitez for helping seal his old side's relegation from the Premier League in May, 2007. 

"Last time I heard from Rafa, it was an email threatening to sue me if I mentioned it again," Warnock said.

"It had his name on. It was his solicitor who was threatening legal action and I've still got it in a scrapbook at home.

"I don't want to give you any more ammunition than you've already got. It's one of those things that disappoints you in life and you have to get on with it.

"I've made my feelings clear on the matter over the last few years and nothing will change that.

"Will I offer to shake his hand? I've no idea, I haven't thought about it yet."

Chelsea are 13 points behind leaders Manchester United in the Premier League.

FC Chelsea interim manager Benitez believes the Premier League Cup is Chelsea's best bet for silverware.

Chelsea look to defeat Southampton in their third round FA Cup fixture in January.

“I said before we have five trophies to challenge for, now we have four,” Benitez said.

“We go back, play Leeds in the League Cup and then Aston Villa at the weekend, so we need to be strong mentally. We have to be ready for the next challenge.”

The FA Cup Third Round ties will take place on Saturday 5 and Sunday, 6 January 2013. Premium FA CUP TICKETSand FA CUP FINAL 2013 Tickets are available now for sale online.
