It's a simple question but there could be so many answers. Chelsea could do with another win but with the busy festive period only just finished, I wonder if AVB will rotate the side and bring in some of the fringe players and some youngsters?

This is a competition the club always wants to win. We have a great record in recent times and the likes of John Terry, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech will be keen to emphasise just how important this competition is for us to all the newbies that haven't either featured in the competition or won it themselves yet.

I would be tempted to put out our strongest side once more to try and get the game won and then make changes. Then again is it fair to do that to the likes of Lukaku and McEachran who haven't featured much this season so far?

We have to respect Portsmouth though. It's all well and good thinking about playing a weakened side but we have to remember that they will come here with nothing to lose, a day out for their fans and will look to try and carve out a chance to get a goal and beat us.

The onus is on Chelsea on Sunday and AVB needs to ensure that we pick a side capable of going out there and beating Portsmouth.

So, who plays?

For me it would be the following side:

Cech, Hutchinson, Luiz, Terry (C), Bertrand, , Romeu, McEachran, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Torres.

What do you think? Who would you pick?
