27 January 2013 11:28
Email Nick Pearce with the answer to this question: Are Brentford the best thing to come out of Hounslow since Fuller's London Pride? Latest BRENTFORD 0 - CHELSEA 0 8 min Turnbull hesitates with a backpass and ends up spooning his clearance out for a throw. Home crowd loved that! 7 min A lot of play down Chelsea's left flank, which is irritating because that portion of the pitch has no sun on it. 5 min Chance! Oscar has a dip from outside the box but his shot lacks the necessary pace and direction to concern Moore. 4 min Chance! Ashley Cole gets to the byline and cuts the ball across goal. It's an incredibly inviting ball in but Torres is not keen and fails to gamble with a run. 3 min Ooh, I like this stat: Twitter: OptaJoe - 29 - Brentford manager Uwe Rösler is the joint-top scoring German in PL history, alongside Jürgen Klinsmann. Pedigree. 2 min Sarcastic cheers from the Bees fans as Lampard's probing ball to Cole sails out for a throw. 1 min We're under way! John Terry booed as he lumps the ball forward. Good to see Chelsea employing route-one tactics. When in Hounslow 11.59 We've shown Brentford the respect they deserve by fielding our first-choice XI. Henry Winter is at Griffin Park: Twitter: Henry Winter - #cfc walking out to a ball-boy guard of honour. 11.57 The two sides are out on the field. Chelsea in presentation jackets but Brentford, like true hard men, in short-sleeve shirts. 11.54 The bookies have a Brentford win at 11/1 but Chelsea are 1/4 favourites. Mail me your predictions. 11.49 Rafa Benitez tight-lipped about Petr Cech's injury. Chelsea's No 1 is not in the matchday squad today, with Ross Turnbull deputising between the sticks and Hilario covering on the bench. 11.45 ESPN broadcasting a handy montage showing how close Chelsea and Brentford's grounds are. They literally filmed the drive and added music. Those who live outside the capital now know just how close they are. Result! 11.42 Our pals at Opta have produced a good stat to illustrate Chelsea's FA Cup pedigree: Twitter: OptaJoe - 15 - Chelsea have won 15 of their last 16 FA Cup fourth round ties, losing the other on penalties to Everton. Strong. 11.40 Here's a video reminder of the last time Chelsea lost to lower league opposition in the FA Cup. Five years ago against Barnsley at Oakwell: 11.34 Bees manager Uwe Rosler is talking to ESPN right now but there's no point in me relaying the kind of platitudes that satisfy broadcasters. Instead, have a read of Sunday Telegraph Football Correspondent Jason Burt's interview with the man: We will use every opportunity to attack them even though they are individually and collectively on a different planet. 11.28 Good morning and thanks for joining me for this FA Cup fourth round tie from suburban London. The sun is shining in the capital and we are all eagerly awaiting to find out whether Chelsea will join Aston Villa in suffering two humiliating cup exits in the space of a few days. Before we get going let's take a look at the breaking team news. TEAM NEWS: Rafa Benitez has recalled club captain John Terry at centre-back and favours Fernando Torres up front.
