West Ham United's FA Cup Youth clash with Chelsea is being broadcast live tonight by the club's website.

Tony Carr's youngsters, who beat Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion to reach the fifth round of the competition face a tough trip across town later this evening when they take on the Blues at Staines FC's Wheatsheaf Park ground.

And thanks to whufc.com, Hammers fans can watch all the action live from 7pm with what promises to be partisan commentary from Martin Godleman, the author of a number of West Ham-related books.

To book your seat for the game - in which the likes of Robert Hall (pictured above) and Danny Potts, two players who have featured for Sam Allardyce's first team already this season, are set to feature - simply visit West Ham TV and sign up for a basic subscription.

For just £4.99, you can get full access to tonight's live broadcast plus access to all premium club content, including exclusive interviews and match highlights, for the next 30 days.

Academy Director Tony Carr, who will take the team tonight along with Youth team coach Nick Haycock told whufc.com: "We're all looking forward to it. We have to say that Chelsea are the favourites [but] we've beaten them this year in the league and lost narrowly in the other game (1-0), so I think it'll be a tight game.

"I don't think there will be a lot in it. I think it will be [close] - and hopefully we'll be the team that comes through."

Those wishing to attend the game in person may pay on the door; admission costs £3 per person. For the winners of tonight's tie, a quarter final trip to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, 25th February awaits.
