Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Lineups & Game Thread

Mike Hewitt

Welcome to David Luiz's 100th start for Chelsea.

A couple things happened last night that I thought I'd never see. One, I got more than five hours of sleep. Two, Sir Alex Ferguson announced that he will be stepping down as managed of Manchester United at the end of the season. I'm not sure which is one the greater sign of the approaching apocalypse, but let's go with the second one for now.

So after all that drama up North, we turn our attentions to the South. Although I'd more be than happy with an entirely undramatic, run-of-the-mill one- or two-goal victory over Spurs.
