Chelsea vs. Southampton: Lineups

While the FA Cup replays finish up, we've got Premier League action as well with Chelsea hosting Southampton at Stamford Bridge. These two teams met two weeks ago in the FA Cup with the Blues hammering the Saints 5-1, but that doesn't mean we're in for another match like that today...hopefully.

Rafa Benitez has named a strong lineup for the match with new signing Demba Ba getting the start up front. Frank Lampard continues what is likely his Blues farewell tour with a start in the midfield.

Luke Shaw was a doubt for Nigel Adkins but was made the starting eleven. Adkins has made a couple changes since the last time the two teams met, with Jack Cork replacing James Ward-Prowse in the midfield and Jos Hooiveld starting in the defense in place of the injured Jose Fonte.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Peter Cech; César Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Ashley Cole; Ramires, Frank Lampard; Oscar, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard; Demba Ba.

Southampton starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Artur Boruc, Nathaniel Clyne, Maya Yoshida, Jos Hooiveld, Luke Shaw; Morgan Schneiderlin, Jack Cork; Steven Davis, Jason Puncheon, Guly de Prado; Jay Rodriguez.
