The FA Cup starts up again this weekend and Premier League Chelsea host Conference Premier Chesterfield on Saturday evening at Stamford Bridge.
The magic of the cup often pits lower league sides against the top-flight teams and many will be looking for a David vs Goliath story with this one.
Chelsea could opt for a mix of youth and experience this weekend against ChesterfieldGETTY

Chesterfield are hoping for a big season this year, not only do they have the boost of facing a top Premier League side they’re also setting their sights on promotion from the Conference Premier.
They were relegated from League Two in 2018 and haven’t been close to reaching the EFL since, until this season.
These two sides will meet for the first time in nearly 72 years, which was also in the FA Cup.
The first leg of that tie saw a 1-1 draw forcing a replay which ended up seeing Chelsea win 3-0.
Thomas Tuchel will likely rotate the teams drastically for a game such as this and it’s difficult to predict which experienced player will lead them out.
But it’s also the biggest occasion for some of these non-league players who will leave everything out on the pitch and make it difficult for the top-flight side.
Chelsea are 1/25 just to win the match and therefore backing any kind of miracle is a big punt, but knowing the FA Cup as it is, there will likely be a quick start to the proceedings.
We are backing: Over 2.5 goals in the first half at 9/4 on 888Sport.
