With Chelsea out of the EFL Cup, the FA Cup is quickly becoming a very important competition for Antonio Conte…

Of course, the Blues are still flying high in the Premier League, but given the rich history that Chelsea have with the FA Cup – a decent run in England’s most historic competition will be expected of Antonio Conte.

A win against Peterborough came in the last round, with the Blues running out 4-1 winners against the Football League side. Next up is a tough game against Brentford, in a clash that the Blues will be expected to win – and win comfortably.

With regards to team news, Antonio Conte has a fully fit squad to choose from, with no major injuries currently halting the Blues’ momentum.

You can expect the Italian to utilise much of that squad, too, with a fully rotated side expected to be put in place by the Chelsea boss. With such a tough run of fixtures coming, Conte will want to rest some of his key players, meaning that you can expect a few youngsters to feature.

With that said, this is the 3-4-3 XI that Conte must pick to smash Brentford…
