Ahead of Thursday’s FA Cup game against Chelsea, Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael has concocted a plan to produce a famous upset.

Ismael has warned Chelsea that the FA Cup has its own rules while revealing his plan to dominate Chelsea on the pitch.

“Intensity is the main focus. Everybody knows what to do and we try to move as a swarm on the pitch,” Ismael said as quoted by Daily Mail.

“Our purpose is to dominate our opponent. This is my way and the club wants to play this way.

“The players understand the principles and it suits the team. It’s a young side, they learn very quickly.”

He added: “It is a chance for us to dream and measure our quality.

“Can we stamp our philosophy on that team? It’s great for my young guys to compete against one of the best teams in the world.

“It’s a massive challenge but we want to find a way through. The FA Cup has its own rules. That is one of the things I have learned.”
