Chelsea vs. Watford, FA Cup: Confirmed lineups

Well, are you ready to use your imagination combined with some vague, non-descriptive commentary to figure out what's happening? That's football in modern times on radio for ya!

This might be the first match in about two years, which, to our knowledge, is not televised anywhere.  So, tune to BBC or Chelsea TV and good luck, everyone.


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Čech | Filipe Luis, Gary Cahill, Kurt Zouma, César Azpilicueta | John Obi Mikel, Ramires | André Schürrle, Oscar, Loïc Rémy | Didier Drogba

Substitutes from: Thibaut Courtois, Branislav Ivanović, Nathan Aké, Nemanja Matić, Willian, Mohamed Salah, Diego Costa

Watford starting lineup (3-5-2):
Jonathan Bond | Gabriele Angella, Craig Cathcart, Tommie Hoban | Daniel Pudil, Fernando Forestieri, Dániel Tőzsér, Gianni Munari, Juan Carlos Paredes | Troy Deeney, Odion Ighalo

Substitutes from: Rene Gilmartin, Lloyd Doyley, Sean Murray, Matej Vydra, Almen Abdi, Josh Doherty, Connor Smith


True to his word, Mourinho makes 8 changes from Thursday's fiasco -- Cahill, Azpilicueta, and Oscar the only ones who get to retain their starting spot (with Azpi switching sides) -- and opts for experience rather than youth on the bench.  Didier Drogba is your captain tonight.
