FOURTH ROUND REPLAY
Chelsea v Brentford
David Luiz, Demba Ba, Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel are available for Chelsea after missing the Europa League win at Sparta Prague. Luiz was suspended, Ba ineligible and Moses and Mikel rested, after winning the African Nations Cup with Nigeria, while John Terry and Ashley Cole were unused substitutes. Cole had a cold and Terry was not risked after a setback in his recovery from a knee injury, but the captain is in line to return in defence against the Bees. Oriol Romeu (knee) is a long-term absentee.
Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has no fresh concerns. Long-term absentees striker Farid El-Alagui (knee) and midfielder Kevin O’Connor (ankle) miss out. Toumani Diagouraga and Marcello Trotta are expected to return for the Bees after starting on the bench during the 2-0 win over Stevenage in midweek.
Top scorers (all competitions):Demba Ba & Juan Mata (Chelsea) 16; Clayton Donaldson (Brentford) 19.
Match odds:H 1-9 A 12-1 D 6-1.
Referee:Jon Moss (W Yorkshire).
Manchester United v Reading
Alex Ferguson has confirmed he will make changes for the tie with Reading. Javier Hernandez, Ashley Young and Nani are amongst the most obvious candidates to come in, with skipper Nemanja Vidic also primed for a recall. Paul Scholes (knee) definitely misses out.
Reading manager Brian McDermott will fully utilise his squad for the tie at Manchester United. Forwards Adam Le Fondre and Noel Hunt are back in contention after coming off the bench in last week’s Premier League defeat at Stoke. Striker Jason Roberts (hip) and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (shoulder) continue their rehabilitation.
Top scorers (all competitions):Robin van Persie (Man Utd) 23; Nick Blackman (Reading) 14.
Match odds:H 2-9 A 15-2 D 9-2.
Referee:Andre Marriner (W Midlands).
