Chelsea will look to avoid an upset when they take on Sheffield Wednesday in the 4th round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge this afternoon. 

Maurizio Sarri has handed a debut to new loan signing Gonzalo Higuain as he starts up front with Willian and youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi in support. Eden Hazard gets a well earned rest.


Willy Caballero starts in goal while Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso come in to the back four. Ross Barkley, Ethan Ampadu and Mateo Kovacic make-up the midfield with Jorginho among the substitutes.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also among the subs after recovering from a back injury while Olivier Giroud and Pedro are on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Caballero; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Barkley, Ampadu, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Higuain, Willian.

Subs: Kepa, Luiz, Emerson, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Giroud
