Chelsea have selected an unchanged team for Sunday’s FA Cup clash against Manchester City.

Guus Hiddink sticks with the same side that lost 2-1 against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek.

With John Terry once again missing with a hamstring injury, Branislav Ivanovic partners Gary Cahill in central defence and Baba Rahman starts at left-back.

There is no place for Nemanja Matic, who missed the PSG trip through suspension, as Hiddink favours the combination of Cesc Fabregas and John Obi Mikel in central midfield.

In the attacking midfield places behind spearhead Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Pedro are preferred to Oscar, who remains on the substitute’s bench.

In contrast with Chelsea’s full-strength team, City have named five debutants as they save their big guns for the midweek Champions League trip to Dynamo Kiev and the Capital One Cup final against Liverpool next Sunday.
