Match thread! Torres is starting!

Chelsea: Cech; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic, Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Oscar, Mata, Hazard; Torres.

Subs: Turnbull, Ferreira, Terry, Bertrand, Ake, Marin, Ba.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin, Wilshere, Diaby, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud.

Subs: Mannone, Koscielny, Jenkinson, Santos, Frimpong, Ramsey, Arshavin.

So Arsenal has named the same starting XI as Wednesday against Swansea. Hopefully they're not totally gassed. Chelsea have slotted Ramires in the holding two along with Lampard, which allows them to field three creative players in their midfield, although Oscar does a lot of good work on defense, so. And, hey, yep, Torres. Torres! Oh well; we have Meerkat on the bench if anything happens.
