Should the Kids Get a Run Out versus Chelsea?

Manchester City face a daunting week ahead. First on Sunday it's the FA Cup Fifth Round against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Blues last won at the bridge in February 2010, in a famous 4-2 victory over Carlo Ancelloti's side that would go on to capture the title.

Then the Blues travel to Ukraine to face Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday in UEFA Champions League play and that will be followed up by Sunday's League Cup Final against Liverpool at Wembley. Given the Blues injury crisis and the lack of depth the team has some positions to begin with, what should be the plan of attack for these games?

The media has been aggressive in talking up a potential " quadruple" for Manchester City but the reality is that the Blues have just one trophy really within grasp and with that final on Sunday February 28 after a cross-continent midweek trip some sacrifices will have to be made.

What do Bitter and Blue readers think? Should Manager Manuel Pellegrini roll the dice and give the promising youngsters in City's side a run out at the bridge? If doing so, maybe securing a replay at home is the ultimate goal?
