We were promised youth for the West Brom game, but with one exception it looks like most of it is on the bench...
Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Thibaut Courtois | Filipe Luis, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek | Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Loic Remy | Diego Costa
Substitutes from: Jamal Blackman, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Nathan Ake, John Obi Mikel, Juan Cuadrado, Izzy Brown.
WBA starting lineup (4-5-1):
Boaz Myhill; Joleon Lescott, Jonas Olsson, Gareth McAuley, Craig Dawson | Callum McManaman, James Morrison, Claudio Yacob, Darren Fletcher, Chris Brunt | Saido Berahino.
Substitutes from: Jack Rose, Andre Wisdom, Chris Baird,Craig Gardner, Youssuf Mulumbu, Brown Ideye, Victor Anichebe
Yep, that's a second straight start for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and with four youth players out of seven making up the substitutes it's difficult to imagine us not having as least some more minutes going to younger players by the end of the day. Also, Diego Costa is back. We've missed you, buddy.
UP THE BLUES!
