Barcelona may be on everyone’s minds, but a spot in the FA Cup quarterfinals is on the line tonight and that opportunity should not be wasted.

The big surprise is that Giroud starts again instead of Morata, but otherwise it’s just about as expected from Conte tonight — rotated but strong.
There are plenty of kids on the bench however, including Hudson-Odoi and Trevoh Chalobah.
COME ON, CHELSEA!
