Brentford vs. Chelsea, FA Cup: Lineups & Game Thread

For the first time in 63 years, it's Brentford & Chelsea in a competitive match - The Magic of the FA Cup!

Christopher Lee

With Luton Town having already filled the quota of major upsets for this round of the FA Cup, this should hopefully turn into a bit of a laugher, paving Chelsea's way into the next round and making us all feel a tiny bit better about all the nonsense surrounding the club.

Brentford starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Simon Moore | Lee Hodson, Tony Craig, Harlee Dean, Shaleum Logan | Toumani Diagouraga, Jonathan Douglas | Harry Forrester, Adam Forshaw, Clayton Donaldson | Marcello Trotta

Substitutes from: Richard Lee, Scott Barron, Sam Saunders, Tom Adeyemi, Stuart Dallas, Jake Reeves, Paul Hayes

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Ross Turnbull | Ashley Cole, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Frank Lampard, Ramires | Ryan Bertrand, Oscar, Marko Marin | Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Hilario, Juan Mata, Paulo Ferreira, Cesar Azpilicueta, Demba Ba, Yossi Benayoun, Nathan Ake

So, JT makes his return. Marin starts (on the right?). Benayoun in the squad. BENAYOUN! What next? Malouda?!
