My Chelsea Team to Face Brentford

Who should line up for Chelsea against Brentford?

Few will deny that League One outfit Brentford were Chelsea's equals in the initial FA Cup fourth-round tie, but when Fernando Torres' late goal saved the Blues' blushes, surely Uwe Rosler's side missed the boat to progress into the next round.

The awful pitch at Griffin Park was a leveller, hindering Chelsea's passing play, as the Bees set around their near neighbours with no fear or intimidation.

However, it will be a different ballgame at Stamford Bridge, and on a big, open pitch with plenty of grass, Rafa Benitez's side should surely make light work of a team ranked 47 places below them in the league hierarchy.

With games coming thick and fast in three different competitions, the visit of Brentford provides Benitez with an opportunity to rest some of his more overworked players ahead of a congested schedule.

Therefore, given the context of this game and strength of the opposition, I select the Chelsea starting X1 I would pick to see off Brentford.
