Trophy in hand.  Packed and ready to check out and go on vacation.  Three more games.  Here's the first.

A reminder, from Jose Mourinho:


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Thibaut Courtois | Filipe Luis, John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Branislav Ivanović | Ruben Loftus-Cheek, John Obi Mikel | Eden Hazard, Cesc Fàbregas, Willian | Loïc Rémy

Substitutes from: Mitchell Beeney, César Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Nathan Aké, Nemanja Matić, Juan Cuadrado, Didier Drogba

Liverpool starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Simon Mignolet | Glen Johnson, Dejan Lovren, Martin Škrtel, Emre Can | Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson | Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana | Rickie Lambert

Substitutes from: Daniel Ward, Kolo Toure, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Joe Allen, Jordan Ibe, Jerome Sinclair


True to his word, Jose gives RLC the start, while Filipe Luis, Mikel, and Kurt Zouma join the party as well.  Rémy, finally healthy, gets the nod up top.  There's a fresh face on the bench, too, goalkeeper Mitchell Beeney.
