[Teams] Middlesbrough vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-ups

By on February 27, 2013

Chelsea are in the north east tonight to take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium with a place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup at stake.

The holders needed a replay to overcome Brentford in the previous round and with a packed fixture list coming up, boss Rafa Benitez will be keen to get the job done at the first attempt this evening.

Chelsea head into the game off the back of Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City and the build-up to the game has been overshadowed by reports of a training ground bust-up with captain John Terry. However, both will be keen to put there differences to one side and concentrate on securing a trip to Old Trafford in the next round.

Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Middlesbrough Team

Steele, Bailey, Friend, McManus, Bikey, Williams, Haroun, Leadbitter, McDonald, Main, Carayol

Subs:

Chelsea Team

Cech; Ferreira, Ivanovic,Terry (c), Bertrand; Ramires, Ake; Moses, Oscar, Benayoun; Torres.

Subs: Turnbull, Cole, David Luiz, Lampard, Hazard, Marin, Ba.
