Uwe Rosler thinks it might suit his Brentford side if Chelsea decide to rest players for the FA Cup fourth-round replay between the teams.

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has insisted that any squad rotation from Chelsea could play into his side's hands today.

The Bees travel to Stamford Bridge in an FA Cup fourth-round replay after an impressive 2-2 draw at Griffin Park two weeks ago.

The League One side are considered even bigger underdogs this afternoon, but Rosler says that it will suit him if his opposite number, Rafa Benitez, decides to rotate his team.

"Since bigger clubs have 11 designated players, there are those who must sit on the bench," Rosler told Goal.com. "It's difficult for them as they have not played for a while and then are thrown in against combative and highly-motivated third-tier players.

"You have seen that we can raise our performance against a team like Chelsea, not individually but the performance of the entire team.

"If you have a good game plan, help yourself and close down space quickly like we did, then you always have a chance, even against Chelsea's world stars."

Brentford face Chelsea at 12pm today.
