Chelsea vs. Swansea City, Capital One Cup: Lineups & Game Thread

The double pivot. - Jamie McDonald

Almost within touching distance of a "meaningless" Cup! Get excited!

On January 9, 2007, the very first iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs. It was magical, it was ground-breaking, it was game-changing.

Six years later, Chelsea shall unveil no such thing. Ho hum.

Also worthy of note, Nigeria - with Victor Moses for sure and maybe John Obi Mikel as well - will be playing a friendly tonight vs. Cape Verde. That match kicks off 15 minutes after this one.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Ross Turnbull; Ashley Cole, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta; David Luiz, Ramires; Juan Mata, Oscar, Eden Hazard; Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Hilario, Paulo Ferreira, Ryan Bertrand, Nathan Ake, Frank Lampard, Marko Marin, Demba Ba

Swansea City starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Gerhard Tremmel; Ben Davies, Ashley Williams, Chico, Angel Rangel; Leon Britton, Jonathan de Guzman; Pablo Hernandez, Ki Sung-Yueng, Wayne Routledge; Michu

Substitutes from: Michel Vorm, Garry Monk, Dwight Tiendalli, Kemy Agustien, Itay Shechter, Nathan Dyer, Danny Graham

Full strength is the key word today but interesting pivot, that.

Swansea's substitute striker cost more money than Chelsea's. Hah!

UP THE BLUES!
