Norwich City vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

Clive Rose

The Blues are aiming for back-to-back victories in the Premier League for the first time in two months.

Boxing Day is a pretty big shopping day here in the USA. But before many of us head in search of deals, let's hope Chelsea find some good sales in East Anglia tonight as well. Buy-1-Get-1 free Torres goals!

Norwich City starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Mark Bunn; Javier Garrido, Michael Turner, Sebastien Bassong, Russell Martin; Bradley Johnson, Alexander Tettey; Anthony Pilkington, Wes Hoolahan, Robert Snodgrass; Grant Holt

Substitutes from: Declan Rudd, Jonny Howson, Simeon Jackson, Steve Morison, Elliott Bennett, Leon Barnett, Ryan Bennett

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech; Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesar Azpilicueta; David Luiz, John Obi Mikel; Juan Mata, Oscar, Victor Moses; Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Nathan Ake, Paulo Ferreira, Frank Lampard, Marko Marin, Eden Hazard, Lucas Piazon

And so the midfield sideshow rolls on. Oscar gets rotated in. Nathan Ake makes the bench for the third match running!

UP THE BLUES! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
