[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.

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.
