The Blues crashed out in the Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea on Wednesday night, and next up face a short but potentially tricky trip to Griffin Park in the FA Cup fourth round.

Highly-rated Moore, 21, limbered up for the big game by saving a penalty in the Bees' 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient earlier this week.

And while expecting a busy afternoon against the likes of Frank Lampard, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres, Moore feels the League One side are capable of pulling off a shock.

"I think I will probably have a lot to do," he said.

"But it will be difficult for them to come here on a tricky pitch, the atmosphere in a tight stadium will be electric and we are confident we can get through."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
