The FA Cup is always an important competition when Chelsea are involved…

The Blues have a storied history in the competition, and whilst Antonio Conte might have bigger fish to fry this season – a decent cup run is still of the utmost importance this season.

Of course, the Blues are flying high in the Premier League, and that surely must take precedence – and so on first glance, it might make sense to drop a few key players. However, with Brentford the opposition, Conte can’t be too confident going into the game – with the FA Cup often producing a few shock results with every passing round.

Instead, Conte might want to use the game to drop a few underperforming players – and with a number of young stars in the ranks waiting for a chance – could this be the perfect game to embed them within the Chelsea first team?

Games are going to come thick and fast over the next few weeks, and Conte must pick his Bradford team with that in mind, whilst also ensuring victory for the Blues.

With that said, it is time for Chelsea to make a few changes – and Conte simply must not start these 2 Chelsea players against Brentford on Saturday…
