Chelsea v Manchester United: Luiz, Piazón, Anderson and Rafael all start

Lucas Piazón starts for Chelsea tonight against Manchester United

Tonight's Capital One fourth round tie between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge see's four Brazilians involved from the start with David Luiz and Lucas Piazón involved for Chelsea and Anderson and Rafael starting for Manchester United. Oscar and Ramires will start on the bench for Chelsea.

These two teams met as recent as Sunday, with Manchester United coming out 2-3 winners after Javier Hernandez's late winner, and both teams have made significant changes to their respective starting line-ups.

Luiz has become a regular for the European Champions since his big-money move from Benfica 18 months ago, but tonight is only Piazón's second appearance for the blues since moving to London from São Paulo last year.

The 18-year-old has made quite an impression so far at Stamford Bridge, as he was named Chelsea's Young Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season after he helped the Chelsea Youth team to victory in the F.A Youth Cup.


Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz, Bertrand, Romeu, Mikel, Moses, Mata, Piazon, Sturridge

Manchester United:

Lindgaard, Rafael, Keane, Wooton, Buttner, Giggs, Anderson, Fletcher, Nani, Hernandez, Wellbeck
