Souleymane Doukara says he would like to play Chelsea in the FA Cup

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds attacker Doukara would like to face Premier League side Chelsea.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, Souleymane Doukara has admitted that he would like to play Chelsea in the next round of the FA Cup, as long as Leeds United progress past Bolton.

When asked who he'd like to play against, Doukara said: “Maybe Chelsea. I hope we go forward and play against a Premier League team. It would be a big game for us.”

Leeds have to take on fellow Championship side Bolton this weekend in the fourth round of the FA Cup, hoping to secure passage to the fifth round.

The Trotters are currently in the midst of a crisis, with their financial status potentially sending the club into crisis. They sit last place in the Championship table, although they head into this fixture against the Whites on the back of a 3-1 win over MK Dons.

Leeds are in better form than their opponents, and Doukara himself is enjoying a nice run of form, but they will have to be wary of a potential upset.

Should Leeds secure passage, the pool of opponents becomes much smaller for the fifth round, and the attitude towards the cup can become more serious.

Their league season is all-but over, so why would Steve Evans not want to take the cup seriously, given the weaknesses that many Premier League teams have this season.

Doukara wants to play a Premier League side in the next round, preferably Chelsea, and considering how poor the Blues have been this season, that is actually a winnable game for Leeds.
