Shrewsbury Town vs. Chelsea, League Cup: Confirmed lineups

Paul Thomas

Turn down for what League Cup Fourth Round!


Shrewsbury Town starting lineup (3-5-2):
Jayson Leutwiler | Connor Goldson (c), Nathaniel Knight-Percival, Jermaine Grandison | Mickey Demetriou, James Wesolowski, Bobby Grant, Ryan Woods, Jack Grimmer | Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, James Collins

Substitutes from: Callum Burton (GK), Mark Ellis, Scott Vernon, Liam Lawrence, Anthony Griffith, Andy Mangan, Jordan Clark

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Filipe Luis, Gary Cahill, Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen | Nathan Ake, John Obi Mikel | Andre Schurrle, Oscar, Mohamed Salah | Didier Drogba (c)

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, John Terry, Nemanja Matic, Lewis Baker, Willian, Eden Hazard, Izzy Brown


As promised, there are starts for the senior players who have not featured that much lately, as well as youngsters Christensen (at right back), Ake (defensive mid), and Zouma (center back).  Lewis Baker and Izzy Brown (the only other center forward in the matchday squad) round out the youthful contingent on the bench and should see some playing time if the final score resembles anything expected.
