Chelsea vs. Swansea City: Lineups

Fernando Torres starts up top for Chelsea against Swansea City in place of Demba Ba, because he needs minutes, we guess. David Luiz continues in midfield, and he'll be partnered by Ramires. John Terry is nearing a return for Chelsea, but isn't quite fit to start yet. The Swans have Gerhard Tremmel in goal ahead of Michel Vorm. They've chosen to stick with five in midfield and Michu up top, despite the excellent form of Danny Graham, who has scored three goals in his last three appearances while deputizing for Michu.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Ross Turnbull; Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesar Azpilicueta; Ramires, David Luiz; Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar; Fernando Torres

Swansea City starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Gerhard Tremmel; Ben Davies, Ashley Williams, Jose Chico, Angel Rangel; Leon Britton, Ki Sung-Yong; Pablo Hernandez, Julian de Guzman, Wayne Routledge; Michu

Kickoff is at 7:45 p.m, local time, 2:45 p.m. ET from Stamford Bridge.
