Everton FC Vs. Chelsea FC: Starting Lineups

The competition's holders, Chelsea, kick-off the FA Cup weekend with a trip to Goodison Park, facing an Everton side they've recorded only one win against in the clubs' last six meetings. With that recent history of trouble against the Toffees, it's no surprise that Chelsea is set to start a full-strength side for today's 7:30 a.m. kick-off,one which includes Frank Lampard, returning from a calf injury which sidelined him for Monday's trip to Bolton.

Chelsea, Starting XI: Petr Cech - José Boingwa, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Ashley Cole - Ramires, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard - Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda

Chelsea, Substitutes: Henriqué Hilario, Mikel John Obi, Paulo Ferreira, Salomon Kalou, Jeffrey Bruma, Josh McEachran, Jacopo Sala

Likewise, Everton is starting a full strength side, with Louis Saha starting at the top of a 4-5-1. The only possibly surprise, normal starting center half Phil Jagielka starts the match on the substitutes bench.

Everton, Starting XI: Tim Howard - Phil Neville, John Heitenga, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines - Seamus Coleman, Jack Rodwell, Marouane Fellaini, Mikel Arteta, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov - Louis Saha

Everton Substitutes: Jan Mucha, Phil Jagielka, Magaye Gueye, Jermaine Beckford, Tony Hibbert, Jose Baxter, Leon Osman
