Chelsea vs. Liverpool, League Cup: Confirmed lineups

Unsurprisingly, this one has turned into quite the hotly anticipated cup tie.  Just a reminder that away goals do not count until the end of extra-time.  So if scores are level at the end of 90 minutes, we go to extra-time without exception.  But at the end of the additional 30 minutes, the only way we'd progress to penalty kicks is if the game finishes 1-1.

Football under the lights!  Here we go.


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Thibaut Courtois | Filipe Luis, John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas | Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian | Diego Costa

Substitutes from: Petr Cech, Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Nathan Ake, Ramires, Loic Remy, Didier Drogba

Liverpool starting lineup (3-4-2-1):
Mignolet | Sakho, Skrtel, Can | Moreno, Lucas, Henderson, Markovic | Coutinho, Gerrard | Sterling

Substitutes from: Ward, Johnson, Lovren, Lambert, Lallana, Allen, Balotelli


For the second game running, Mourinho proves a bit more adventurous in his squad selection than the community votes, preferring Zouma and Filipe Luis over Cahill and Azpilicueta.  Nathan Ake gets a bench spot over Mikel (who's probably still dazed from his head injury on Saturday), while neither Schurrle nor Salah are present in the 18.

Meanwhile, Liverpool stick with what worked for them in the first leg.  No Daniel Sturridge, not even on the bench.
