Match Day Moments - Derby (a) FA Cup

Match Day Moments - Derby (a) FA Cup

Chelsea takes to the road today for an FA Cup 3rd round tie against Derby County.

The FA Cup is a competition we have a decent record in and with the FA Cup Final now rightly restored to its familiar place at the end of the season, reaching Wembley is a fantastic climax and a wonderful day out.

Jose Mourinho has already spoken about how much the FA Cup means to him and the 'Special One` has promised to field a strong side against a Derby side who are flying high in the Championship.

But who will make the starting eleven? We know that Frank Lampard and Branislav Ivanovic are both out injured but David Luiz is available after serving a one game suspension picked up for receiving five yellow cards.

So why not join us around 13:00 hours, ahead of the 14:14 (UK time) kick-off when we`ll be on hand to discuss the starting eleven, the possible tactics but most importantly of all - the action as it unfolds at Pride Park.

Hopefully, Chelsea can edge into round four and avoid the kind of giant-killing that befell Leeds United, Millwall and Aston Villa yesterday!

Derby manager Steve McClaren on BT Sport: "We are at home, it is a full house and it should be cracking atmosphere. We know playing against Chelsea it is going to be a very tough test but we are all looking forward to it."
