We can't afford to use a bad team for this one. Forest will come planning to cause an upset. Most of the players that we refer to as our first team players should have been the ones we would have been expecting to play in this kind of matches had it not been for the transfer ban that left us with mostly young players in the team. 

it is those young players that play this kind of matches, they would have been in the team from the beginning of the season, coming in as substitutes and playing full matches occasionally when we want to rest some of the first team players. I think that is how a top team should be. But of course, because of the transfer ban, we didn't have any option than to keep playing them. 

Anyway, some of them are better than that, all I'm saying is that we should play them for this one because in the first place, they would have been the ones that would have played this kind of match. If we say we want to be using the likes of Pedro or ......., we may be using a team that is too weak to play against Forest, and they may defeat us. 

In this transfer window, we need to make important signings. Teams like Everton, Bournemouth, West Ham, Southampton shouldn't be defeating us, if we are really desirous of finishing in the top four at the end of the season.

Come on Chels.

Can’t see anything other than a win today. Hopefully some positive performances and another small team in the next round to help us advance further before we eventually reach the final.

I won't call a team that is 4th in the championship a small team...

Honestly I hope we lose and focus on top 4..  our  starting 11 is stretched mainly because lampard didn't rotate during the Christmas period.. Hopefully he learns from Kane's hamstring issue bcoz that could easily be Tammy , especially with our high pressing from attackers

Hudson odi needs to start showing a bit more to his game. He hasn’t been impressive at all this season. So it will be good to see how he does today.

You could say the same for half this team, certainly Michy, Emerson, Christensen, Pedro, Barkley
