case it will be a late night because
the kick-off here at Stamford Bridge

Yes, January is
always a bit annoying. It's also
easy to focus the players on the
sporting side and on the games, to
be honest we lost a really key
player, he was pretty important for
us but it's like this so sometimes
you have to accept such decisions
and it's up to me to find solutions
to be successful with all the other
lads and hopefully we will be today.
You have spoken in the press about a
special plan for this game, do you
want to share that with us?
I think it's quite normal when you
face an opponent who has such high
individual quality compare to us, it
is necessary to be there with good
basement behaviour but also create a
special plan and to further was
planned with a good performance on
the pitch. For that you need a big
game and perhaps Chelsea is not

see how it develops.

a big part to play in this game.

the year. It will be a tall order
fraud knowledge, relegated from the
Premier League two years ago and
currently 13th in the Championship,
the reform is pretty good, unbeaten
in five and only conceding one goal
in that time. Chelsea made it all
the way to the final last year where
they lost to Arsenal but they have
lifted the trophy five times since
the turn of the millennium, seven
times in all and it is 20 years
since the last went out of the cup
in the third round. Let's take a
look at the line-ups. As with most
domestic cup games Caballero is in
goal. David Luiz starts for the
first time since the game at Carrow
Road and 17-year-old Ampadu gets a
chance to impress.

against Leicester in all. Only
Azpilicueta and Bakayoko stay in the
team. Some big hitters on the bench,
not least Hazard and Morata. As for

there's a chance for someone.
Interesting night for Batshuayi his
50th appearance for Chelsea but
clearly the manager doesn't really
fancy him, not many starts in 18
months in the Premier League and it
looks like he'll be going elsewhere.
That's why it's interesting for him
also. When you go through these
transfer sagas, and Batshuayi's name
has been mentioned, the spotlight is
going to be on him. CFE performs in
a way that says he wants to stay at
Chelsea -- seat if he performs.
Caballero is in goal again. He has
started every cap domestic game
until the last game in the Carabao
Cup. And Zimmermann safely seeing it
out of play. Antonio Conte, who made
some positive noises about the video

before Christmas. He is an under 19

do more of. They are playing quite a

do that and he's not doing it often
enough. This is what he should be

end you have to say they deserve it.
Absolutely. That goal that Chelsea
just conceded, the header, it summed
up their performance. No pressure on
the ball, no effort to stop the

the quality of the game you want it

everything against the champions.
Has to be clever now, Pinto. When
cramp sets in, it doesn't go away
very often. He's put in everything,
every ounce of effort. He's the

to lead. He'll have to be careful
about his energy.
