West Ham United vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

Jamie McDonald

And I go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can't help myself,
All I wanna hear her say is "Are you mine?"


West Ham United starting lineup (4-3-3):
Jussi Jääskeläinen | Joey O'Brien, James Collins, James Tomkins, Guy Demel | Ravel Morrison, Jack Collison, Mark Noble | Joe Cole, Kevin Nolan, Stewart Downing

Substitutes from: George McCartney, Matthew Jarvis, Modibo Maiga, Adrian, Matthew Taylor, Mohamed Diame, Carlton Cole

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Frank Lampard, Mikel | Eden Hazard, Oscar, Ramires | Samuel Eto'o

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, Michael Essien, Juan Mata, Willian, Andre Schurrle, Demba Ba


Mourinho, in line with his claims of this being a tough match, goes with a more defensive look today with Ramires deployed as a defensive winger on the right side.

Well, if things go very badly here, at least we'll have the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special to look forward to (starting right after the conclusion of this one).

Also, a friendly reminder to any and all prospective Artur Boruces out there:
