Sinclair, Clarke, Page, Williams
Collins, Berrett, Holdsworth, Brandon
Eastwood, Mirfin, Kamara, Schofield, Booth
Beckett recovers from his injury, but sadly Worthington does not, Frank Sinclair is the sides captain today, surely a special honour and a nice gesture from Andy Ritchie for the ex Chelsea player on his return to Stamford Bridge.
A few players not used by Chelsea this afternoon, but still a very strong line up, with a fantastic bench !
23 Carlo Cudicini
20 Paulo Ferreira
22 Tal Ben-Haim
26 John Terry (c)
18 Wayne Bridge
9 Steve Sidwell
12 John Mikel Obi
8 Frank Lampard
21 Salomon Kalou
14 Claudio Pizarro
17 Scott Sinclair
Substitutes: 40 Hilario, 6 Ricardo Carvalho, 5 Michael Essien, 7 Andriy Shevchenko, 39 Nicolas Anelka.
Town under some early pressure, with Chelsea gaining a few corners and Williams making a goalbound clearance.
Chelsea having most of the ball, but Town still holding the premiership giants with seventeen minutes gone.
Spoke too soon, Lampard has scored for Chelsea, from a cross. 1-0 to Chelsea.
The possession stats must be greatly in Chelseas favour.
Half an hour gone, this is a one sided game as you would expect.
Huddersfield also making quite a few errors with passes not finding their intended target.
Thirty five minutes gone, Clarke gets a shot in from a corner which is cleared for a corner after being goalbound, and Williams shoots from the resulting corner, at last something for the many terriers fans to shout about.
Just before half time, Holdsworth put the ball into Michael Collins who has scored for Town, it's 1-1, would you believe it, a good time to score.
Half time 1-1 ! Game on.
Attendance - 41324
I would expect Chelsea to come out for the second half all guns blazing now.
Ten minutes gone of the second half, and so far its a more even contest in the second half.
Chelseas Kalou has a goal disallowed for offside.
Sixty minutes gone and Lampard has scored his and Chelseas second goal. 2-1 to Chelsea.
Another Chelsea goal disallowed for offside, this time Pizarros effort.
Kalou has scored it is now 3-1 to Chelsea, with twenty minutes to go.
Kamara comes on for Jevons, and Shevchenko comes on for Sidwell.
Town replacing a striker with a midfielder, and Chelsea replacing a midfielder with a striker.
Clear intentions from both sides here.
Eighty minutes gone, Booth comes on for Beckett.
Essien replaces Lampard.
Both managers make their final substitutions
Anelka replaces Pizzaro and Schofield replaces Berrett for Town with five minutes to go.
