Ah yes, the glamour of the Capital One Cup.  It doesn't get much better than this.  Said no one ever.

Still, it's Chelsea and it's Mourinho and it's football under the lights and it's win or go home, so let's get hyped!  Sort of.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Filipe Luis, Kurt Zouma, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta | Nathan Ake, Mikel | Andre Schurrle, Oscar, Mohamed Salah | Loic Remy

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Branislav Ivanovic, Eden Hazard, Didier Drogba, Nemanja Matic, Andreas Christensen, Lewis Baker

Bolton Wanderers starting lineup (4-4-2):
Andy Lonergan | Dean Moxey, Dorian Dervite, Matt Mills, Chris Herd | Liam Feeney, Neil Danns, Medo Kamara, Darren Pratley | Jermaine Beckford, Craig Davies

Substitutes from: Paddy Kenny, Kevin McNaughton, Jay Spearing, Tim Ream, Lee Chung-yong, Joe Mason, Max Clayton

It's mostly a second choice lineup from the visitors, though it does feature Jermaine Beckford, who's made a habit of scoring against Chelsea throughout the various stops in his career.

Mourinho opts for the full Rafatation, with only Cahill and Azpilicueta keeping their places from the weekend (though technically Azpi's switching sides).  Petr Cech gets his first action of the new season.  Ake gets a start, while fellow young guns Christensen and Baker are available from the bench.

UP THE BLUES!
