Kickoff: Monday, December 27, 3 PM EST, Emirates Stadium
TV Coverage: ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Mobile, probably The Ocho
SBN Chelsea Perspective: We Ain't Got No History


Here we go.

Lineup: Fabianski, Sagna, Koscielny, Djourou, Clichy, Wilshere, Song, Fabregas, Nasri, Walcott, Van Persie.


Chelsea: Cech, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Essien, Mikel, Lampard, Kalou, Drogba, Malouda. Subs: Turnbull, Ramires, Bosingwa, Van Aanholt, Bruma, Kakuta, McEachran.

Or, as The Backwards Gooner puts it on twitter: "Very pleased with starting XI. Walcott can help stop Cole's influence, Nasri will defend better than AA. Djourou adds more physical presence."
