West Ham United vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

THAT GUY; SWARM SWARM SWAM - Jamie McDonald

And I go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can't help myself,
All I wanna hear her say is "Are you mine?"

Mourinho, in line with his claims of this being a tough match, goes with a more defensive look today with Ramires deployed as a defensive winger on the right side.

Well, if things go very badly here, at least we'll have the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special to look forward to (starting right after the conclusion of this one).

Also, a friendly reminder to any and all prospective Artur Boruces out there:
