Chelsea vs. Brentford, FA Cup: Confirmed lineups

New, comments

What time is it?

It's FA Cup time!

"Every competition must be a priority for us. To have another competition with the league is very important, because also this season we didn't play in the Champions League or the Europa League."

"You know better than me in the FA Cup anything can happen, above all if you don't play with the right concentration and focus. It will be tricky, but we want to play a good game and advance into the next round."

Ake starts as promised, though the Chelsea official Twitter has him at right wing-back, which I don't think is correct.  Either way, welcome back, Nathan Aké.  As promised, there are starts for Chalobah and Loftus-Cheek as well.

And a wild Kenedy appears on the bench!  Surprise!


P.S.: Welcome back, Josh McEachran!
