How should Chelsea line up against Wolves in Saturday's FA Cup match at Molineux?

Sixteen teams remain in the 2016-17 FA Cup, including five of the Premier League's top six teams.  Liverpool are the only exception.

With none of the five getting drawn against each other, there's a good chance that the latter stages of this season's FA Cup will feature some heavy hitters.  But Chelsea have to get past second division Wolverhampton Wanderers (i.e. Wolves) first, the team who eliminated the aforementioned Liverpool in the last round.

Boss Antonio Conte rotated very heavily for both of the previous two rounds of this knockout competition, as Chelsea beat Peterborough United and Brentford without too much fuss or muss.  But both of those games were at Stamford Bridge and this one isn't, and this game comes with a full week to rest both before and after. So perhaps a bit less rotation is in order.

One player who's more or less been confirmed to not be taking part this weekend is David Luiz, who will be resting and recovering his injured knee instead.  All others are fair game.

Choose wisely.
