West Ham United vs. Chelsea, EFL Cup: Confirmed lineups

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Welcome to a non-televised Chelsea game!  There are options however, even though the game's not on TV in either the UK or the USA.

Your options in the UK, the legal ones anyway, are restricted to radio only.  In the USA, we're a bit luckier in that the match will be shown on beIN Sports Connect (ch.3).  It won't be shown on the actual TV channel (they'll have the Manchester derby on instead), but their online offering will have it.  You can access this either through your cable/satellite subscription, OR, and this is where we're lucky, through fuboTV.  A cord-cutter's dream!

More details below, but basically you have sign up for a fuboTV membership ($9.99/month but they do have a 24-hour free trial, which works just as well), then link that to a beIN Sports Connect account, and then you're good to go.  This is a multi-step process (and doesn't work very well in Chrome), so do it now before the game starts.

Speaking of which...

Conte sticks with the 3-4-3, with JT coming it to anchor it in the middle, David Luiz sliding right and Azpilicueta playing as the wing-back.  Young Ola Aina comes in on the left while Nathaniel Chalobah starts in the middle.

Strong lineup.  Let's win this.
