Chelsea face Brentford in the fourth round of the FA Cup, their first game since Eden Hazard was sent off for kicking a ball boy. Kick off is at noon.

Elsewhere, Tottenham are away to Leeds, in a 2pm kickoff.

Rafael Benitez has insisted that the FA Cup is as much a priority as the league, saying:

"The FA Cup is our next target, we will try to do it. The priority is very clear. Finish in the top four and try to progress and try to go, as much as we can, to the final or to the semi-final."

Defending the rotation policy which will likely see recalls for Paulo Ferreira and Ryan Bertrand in addition to John Terry, Benitez said: "You can make one mistake in one game. It does not mean that the approach is not good enough."

Like Chelsea, Brentford lie third in their own division. Benitez said:

"I have seen some games and I was talking with the scout. They can play in different ways. They can switch. They can play long, they can try to win second balls. So, quite an interesting team and they are doing well."
