This weekend, the Premier League season is temporarily placed on hold as Chelsea begin their defence of the FA Cup they won, last May, against Nottingham Forest.

The draw could have been kinder, but then again it could probably have been a lot worse when Chelsea were given a home tie against the Championship side, Nottingham Forest.

The tie has all the ingredients to be a David and Goliath affair with the Championship side looking to spring a surprise.

With Chelsea set to enter a period where the term fixture congestion could be used, with games coming thick and fast, Maurizio Sarri faces a selection headache.

Normally, Sarri would be expected to rotate his squad but the Italian has been beset with a series of injuries that could affect his thinking.

As is the norm, we’re asking you to predict the starting eleven that Sarri will opt for, no mean feat considering the circumstances.

But, we’re optimistic that some of you, with your predictions, can get it spot on.

Now, who’ll get us started?
