Birmingham City whizkid Nathan Redmond hopes to introduce himself to a world audience against FA Cup opponents Chelsea.

The winger's pace and trickery have caught the eye and there will be no shortage of scouts at Chelsea on Saturday to see how the 17-year-old performs in Birmingham's FA Cup fifth-round tie.

"We played Man City [in the League Cup] earlier in the season and lost 2-0 and that was a really good experience, but I think I'm a much better player now," Redmond told the Guardian. "I think I got a little bit too caught up in the occasion in the first 10 minutes [at City] and then I started to play. The Chelsea game will be difficult but we don't really fear anyone. We've gone into games when we've been the underdogs and scored late goals, and we haven't lost a match for a while."
