Steve Bull has highlighted Chelsea’s hot form as Wolves prepare to face them in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.

Antonio Conte’s side are currently top of the Premier League and are starting to pull away from the chasing pack.

Talking in The Times, Bull revealed that he would have wanted an easier game against one of the remaining two non-league clubs in the competition rather than the country’s best.

The Wolves legend also criticised Jurgen Klopp’s decision to not play his first team in the last round.

The Black Country club won 2-1 at Anfield and speaking in an interview with The Times, Bull said that he was angry with the way Klopp set up his team on that day.

“When Liverpool put their second string out I thought, ‘Why? Why do you do that? Do you not want to win the FA Cup?’ I was a little bit cross.

“I thought they still might beat us but then the way it turned out, I thought it serves them right.

“So I thought, ‘Right, next up we have to get someone like a Sutton United,’ but no, it’s Chelsea. You can’t get bigger can you? They are on fire.”

Chelsea are eight points clear at the top of the top flight after 25 games. They are yet to face a side that are also in the same league as them in this year’s FA Cup having already dispatched of Peterborough and Brentford with ease scoring eight goals in the two games.

Wolves on the other hand have only faced Premier League teams after beating Stoke before the victory at Anfield.

The last time these two clubs met in the FA Cup was in 1994. Chelsea won 1-0 on that occasion as Gavin Peacock scored the only goal.
