Only one change to the lineup from Sunday's win over Everton: Erik Lamela starts in place of Roberto Soldado in a move that makes me weep hot, wet tears of sadness and pain. As for Chelsea, Didier Drogba gets the start ahead of Loic Remy. Otherwise, this is a very strong lineup, as expected.
How to Watch:
Game time: 7:45 p.m. (2:45 p.m. ET). 'Mericans can find this match on NBC Sports, and online at NBC Sports Live Extra. Britons can watch... well, actually, it doesn't appear to be on TV in the UK because stupid, so find it on BBC Radio. You suck at broadcast sports, England. It's on Fox Sports 2 in Oz, and TSN4 in Canadinia. All of this doesn't really matter because I'm at my day job and can't watch and I hate everything.
