Chelsea vs. Manchester United, Capital One Cup: Lineups & Game Thread

Clive Rose

So much surreal stuff happening, I'm hardly in the mood for a match. Hopefully the boys are and give us a reason to cheer.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; Ryan Bertrand, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta; John Obi Mikel, Oriol Romeu; Lucas Piazon, Juan Mata, Victor Moses; Daniel Sturridge

Substitutes from: Hilario, Paulo Ferreira, George Saville, Ramires, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Marko Marin

Manchester United starting lineup (4-4-2): Anders Lindegaard; Alexander Buttner, Scott Wootton, Michael Keane, Rafael; Ryan Giggs, Anderson, Darren Fletcher, Nani; Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez

Substitutes from: Sam Johnstone, Nick Powell, Federico Macheda, Jesse Lingard, Marnick Vermijl, Robbie Brady, Ryan Tunnicliffe

It seems that on Halloween, not only ghosts come out to play, but also the likes of Azpilicueta, Victor Moses, and Lucas Piazon! Woo. United have made 10 changes from Sunday - Rafael the only returnee.

Also, loving the fact that BOTH Mikel & Mata are in there, just to throw it back in the face of the papers which claimed they'd miss due to the whole Clattenburg affair. Hah! George Saville makes the bench (high-five!).
