Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur, FA Cup: Confirmed lineups

And here we go.

The top two teams in the Premier League, playing for a spot in the FA Cup final against the winner of Manchester City and Arsenal (played tomorrow).

Pre-match talk has been all about who's the biggest underdog, with rumors flying left and right about major changes for both teams.  Let's see if those were correct.


Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Courtois | Aké, David Luiz, Azpilicueta (c) | Alonso, Matić, Kanté, Moses | Pedro, Batshuayi, Willian

Substitutes from: Begović, Zouma, Terry, Chalobah, Fàbregas, Hazard, Costa

Tottenham Hotspur starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Lloris (c) | Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Dier, Trippier | Dembele, Wanyama | Dele, Eriksen, Son | Kane

Substitutes from: Lopez, Davies, Walker, Wimmer, Sissoko, Nkoudou, Janssen


Date / Time: Saturday, April 22, 17:15 BST; 12:15pm EDT; 9:45pm IST
Venue: Wembley, London, England
Referee: Martin Atkinson
On TV: BBC One (UK); Fox, Fox Deportes (USA); TEN 1 (India); elsewhere
Streaming online: BBC iPlayer (UK); Fox Soccer 2Go, Fox Sports Go (USA)


As expected, Nathan Aké deputizes for injured captain Gary Cahill, with the armband passing to Dave.  Meanwhile up front, Costa has been dropped/rested and Hazard has been rested/dropped.

Spurs make a couple changes to their defence as well, but start all the danger-men up front.
