Once again, Andre Villas-Boas has opted to drop Frank Lampard to the bench. The long-serving Chelsea midfielder will not be starting, as AVB picks three more athletic midfielders in his place. Manchester City have kept Edin Dzeko and Samir Nasri on their bench, while bringing in Pablo Zabaleta at right back for Stefan Savic. Micah Richards is injured. Chelsea defender David Luiz is suspended, so Jose Bosingwa goes to right back while Branislav Ivanovic moves inside. Here are the lineups.
Kickoff is at 3:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local time. You can catch the game on ESPN2 in the USA, Sky Sports 1 in the UK and TSN in Canada.
