The FA Cup

Confirmed - Chelsea line-up v Brentford

Here’s how Chelsea line-up for the FA Cup replay against Brentford, kick-off 12:00 GMT.

Starting Team: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, David Luiz, Lampard, Oscar, Mata, Moses, Ba.

Subs: Turnbull, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Ramires, Benayoun, Hazard, Torres.

Goals from Oscar and Fernando Torres were enough to help Chelsea for this replay after they went behind twice in the match at Brentford. Chelsea produced a superb performance away at Southampton in the third round to reach this point, winning 5-1 which will give them great confidence.

Goals from Trotta and Forrester have given Brentford this chance to play at Stamford Bridge. Domestically their away form has been pretty decent with a current record of five wins, seven draws and three defeats. However, playing at the home of the European champions is a completely different animal.

What is your prediction?
