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

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.

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.
