Chelsea's dismal Premier League title defense means the FA Cup now carries even greater significance as interim manager Guus Hiddink attempts to avoid a trophy-free end to the season.With next month's Champions League last 16 game against Paris Saint-Germain looming, the FA does not represent the Stamford Bridge club's last chance of silverware.Chelsea remain in the bottom half of the league table, but a run of seven games without defeat under the Dutchman -- culminating in last weekend's 1-0 victory at Arsenal -- has transformed the mood at the club.Chelsea were humiliated in the FA Cup last season by third-tier Bradford City, who turned on the style to win 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.Manager Karl Robinson is hopeful his players can replicate that performance and keep believing that Chelsea can be beaten.
