Welcome to the FA Cup fifth round.  A spot in the quarterfinals awaits the winner.

We've already had one giant-killing today, as non-league Lincoln City beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.  Wolves themselves eliminated Liverpool in the previous round.

In the words of Antonio Conte, we must pay great attention.  And find the right balance.  And win.


Wolves starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Ikeme | Doherty, Hause, Batth (c), Coady | Saville, Price | Weimann, Edwards, Costa | Bodvarsson

Substitutes from: Burgoyne, Stearman, Evans, Saiss, Ronan, Enobakhare, Gibbs-White

Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Begović | Aké, Terry (c), Zouma | Pedro, Fàbregas, Chalobah, Moses | Hazard, Costa, Willian

Substitutes from: Eduardo, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Kenedy, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Batshuayi

A fair bit stronger lineup than the previous two rounds then, with an almost first-choice forward lineup but a fully rotated backline and midfield.
