Chelsea youngsters will most likely get a chance to prove their worth against Brentford in the FA Cup clash on Saturday.

With the Blues facing a testing Premier League game at Liverpool just three days after the Brentford match and title challengers Arsenal coming to Stamford Bridge next weekend, Conte will give youngsters and fringe players game time on Saturday, and also give his first team players much-needed rest for the big game.

Of the side that faced Hull, only Gary Cahill and Pedro started for Chelsea in the previous round of the FA Cup against Peterborough. The likes of Nathan Ake, Nathaniel Chalobah, Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi will play on Saturday, while Cesc Fabregas and Willian could also be given starts. However, the same cannot be said about Asmir Begovic and Branislav Ivanovic, who are both subjects of intense transfer speculation.
