Pompey head to Stamford Bridge in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday, and we want to know your views on the game.

The fixture is a repeat of the 2010 Cup final at Wembley – a game the London Blues won 1-0 thanks to Didier Drogba’s free-kick.

But a lot has changed since then, with Pompey now plying their trade in the Championship and Chelsea currently struggling to keep pace with the Premier League’s leaders.

Both side’s enjoyed victories on their last outings, though – Pompey winning 2-0 at home to Watford and Andrea Villas-Boas’ side seeing off Wolves 2-1.

Pompey had to make do without the services of suspended duo Greg Halford and Joel Ward for their victory against the Hornets.

Both are available for selection on Sunday, but should Michael Appleton restore them to the side after enjoying a comfortable win last time out?

Also, Joe Mattock has returned to parent club West Brom following his Fratton Park loan spell, but who should fill the void left at left-back?

Meanwhile, should Appleton change his formation for the clash and revert to a defensive 4-5-1 formation and hopefully earn the right to bring Chelsea down to the south coast for a replay?

Whatever your views, post them below.
