[Teams] Leeds vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-ups
Chelsea take on Leeds United in the Capital One Cup tonight with a place in the semi-final’s at stake.
The European champions head into the game just three days after a grueling long-haul trip to Japan to contest the World Club Cup, that saw the Blues narrowly miss out after losing 1-0 to Corinthians in the final on Sunday.
Boss Rafa Benitez is without the suspended Ramires, Gary Cahill and John Obi Mikel, meaning Frank Lampard stars in midfield while Branislav Ivanovic plays alongside David Luiz at the back. Marko Marin is given his first start in a Chelsea shirt while Ryan Bertrand starts at left back.
Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game.
Ashdown, Byram, Lees, Pearce, Peltier, Tonge, Green, Brown, Thomas, Becchio, Diouf.
Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Oscar, Marin, Moses, Lampard, Mata, Torres.
Subs: Turnbull, Cole, Ferreira, Saville, Ake, Hazard, Piazon.
