Chelsea vs. Real Sociedad, Preseason Friendly: Confirmed lineups

Mike Hewitt

It promises/promised to be a fun occasion, but the good ol' London, England weather is trying its best to put a damper on the proceedings.

Must persevere!  There's a preseason win at stake!


Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):
Thibaut Courtois | Nathan Ake, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Andre Schurrle

Substitutes from: Petr Cech, Mark Schwarzer, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Filipe Luis, Kurt Zouma, Mikel, Oscar, Marco van Ginkel, Mohamed Salah, Victor Moses, Willian, Fernando Torres

Real Sociedad starting eleven:
Zubikarai, Zaldua, Ansotegi, Iñigo Martínez, De la Bella, Markel, R.Pardo, Granero, X.Prieto, Canales, Agirretxe

Substitutes from: TBA


Thanks to Ramires' versatility, we could be in a 4-2-3-1 as well, with Hazard in the #10 role, Schurrle out wide left and Ramires wide right.  But I'm hoping that it's a 4-3-3 instead.
