Chelsea take on Stoke City in the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge, and a few individual battles are likely to be pivotal in deciding the outcome of the match.
Nemanja Matic v Stephen Ireland
Nemanja Matic is expected to make his second debut for Chelsea against Stoke City, having re-signed for the west London club earlier this month.
Stephen Ireland will hope to capitalise on a player not yet familiar with his team-mates, and after signing a permanent deal with the Potters he will be in confident form.
The former Manchester City star, who shone under Mark Hughes at Eastlands, looks to have found a new lease of life under his old boss at the Britannia Stadium, and Matic will hope his class will tell on the day.
