N'Golo Kante could be back after missing the last couple of weeks through a hamstring injury. Andreas Christensen was back in the squad against Leicester City after recovering from knee trouble.

Luton Town

Tom Lockyear's red card appeal was successful and the centre-back could be back but Luton otherwise have a full complement to choose from.

Stats to know (via Opta)

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been involved in 25 goals in 32 FA Cup appearances in his career.

Chelsea have played Luton thrice in the past, with each of those games being in the FA Cup.

The Blues are hoping to progress to the FA Cup fifth round for the 23rd time in 26 attempts.

Match prediction

Josh Wright, WhoScored: Chelsea 3-0 Luton Town

"Frank Lampard is on thin ice as Chelsea boss and a shock FA Cup exit to Championship side Luton could be curtains for his time at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have only won three of their last 10 in all competitions. 

"Luton are doing better than expected in the Championship this season, currently occupying a mid-table spot. The Hatters have won three of their last five in all competitions ahead of their daunting trip to Chelsea. 

"Chelsea dispatched Morecambe 4-0 in the last round of the FA Cup during their troubled league form and another win is expected here even with Lampard fighting to save his job."

Manager's quotes

Frank Lampard (via Chelsea FC): "Luton are going to be a tough competitor. They are going pretty well in the Championship, they are a good team, and this is the FA Cup and we know what comes with it.

"I’ll be picking a team to try and win the game and get us through to the next round."
