Valencia Vs. Chelsea Live, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Neither Andre-Villas Boas or Unai Emery has busted out too many surprises in their lineups for their UEFA Champions League fixture. Valencia starts the same team that got a draw out of Barcelona, while Chelsea stick with their 4-3-3. The front three is a bit odd, though, with Florent Malouda and Juan Mata on either side of Fernando Torres. Mata will probably be wide right, but who knows. Villas-Boas could have some trickery in store. Here are the lineups.
