Chelsea v. Blackburn Rovers: FA Youth Cup Final, 1st Leg - Lineups And Live Thread

Only one team stands between the Baby Blues and FA Youth Cup glory: Blackburn. Adi Viveash called the Rovers youth the perfect mix of style and substance, but after vanquishing defending champions Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, West Ham, Norwich, and Doncaster it's hard not to picture Chelsea as the favorites here (of course, I am biased).

The FA Youth Cup Final is a two-legged affair, with the 2nd Leg set for May 9th at Ewood Park. Hopefully we can set ourselves up with a great chance to win it all by taking care of business tonight.

COME ON YOU BLUES!!

Chelsea (4-3-3): Blackman - Kane, Davey, Ake, Nditi - Baker, Chalobah (c), Swift - Affane, Feruz, Lucas Piazon
Subs from: Beeney, Kiwomya, Gordon, Mitchell, Nkumu

Blackburn (??): Urwin - Wylie, Beesley, Hands, Edwards (c) - O'Connell, Osawe, R.Hanley, Haley, O'Sullivan, Hernandez
