Youth Cup open thread: 2/15/12

New, comments

The fifth round of the FA Youth Cup will get underway at 1:30 EST on Chelsea TV today. Chelsea's youth have made a bad habit of allowing early goals this season before dominating the remainder of the game. Hopefully today we'll see the youngsters come out of the gate with a better defense and have an impressive showing. Lucas Piazon, Islam Feruz, Jamal Blackman, Nathan Ake, and Nathaniel Chalobah will all definitely play a part today. Danny Pappoe and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are definitely out. Several other players are fighting minor injuries, but I'll post our lineup as soon as it's released. There are also a pair of Champions League games if any of you are watching those...discuss away.

Chelsea lineup (4-3-3): Blackman, Kane, Chalobah, Ake, Nditi, Swift, Baker, Osmanoic, Affane, Feruz, Piazon

For a preview from a West Ham perspective have a look at this...
