Manchester City v. Chelsea, FA Cup: Lineups & Match Thread

Laurence Griffiths

Manchester City. Chelsea. The FA Cup. It's business time.

'If Chelsea win today then Man City can't win four trophies, like their manager said is their target for the season. But if you cannot win four but you can win three, that is a lot.

'Big teams know they can lose against other big teams.'

-Jose Mourinho, source: Chelsea FC

Manchester City Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Costel Pantilimon, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany (C), Joleon Lescott, Gael Clichy, Javi Garcia, Yaya Toure, James Milner, David Silva, Stevan Jovetic, Edin Dzeko

Chelsea Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Cesar Azpilicueta, John Mikel Obi, Nemanja Matic, Ramires, Eden Hazard, Willian, Samuel Eto'o

Manchester City Substitutes: Joe Hart, Micah Richards, Martin Demichelis, Aleksandar Kolarov, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Samir Nasri

Chelsea Substitutes: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Oscar, André Schürrle, Mohamed Salah, Fernando Torres.

Strongish lineups from both sides, despite rumours earlier this week of weakened sides. Should be a fantastic and exciting match yet again between these two sides. COME ON YOU BLUES!
