Chelsea v Everton: Live GameThread (FA Cup Edition)

This is the match to salvage our season. A win here, and we're still in contention to accomplish something. A loss here and it's a dead season with relegation worries still hanging over our heads.

I like that Beckford is the starting striker, but I'm not so sure about Osman starting over Bilyaletdinov. I always thought Osman was an energy man best used as a substitute, but I guess we'll have to wait and see how it works.

As always, comment below.

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Coleman, Arteta, Fellaini, Osman, Cahill, Beckford

Everton Subs: Mucha, Hibbert, Heitinga, Bilyaletdinov, Anichebe, Duffy, Baxter

Chelsea Starting XI: Cech, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Lampard, Kalou, Drogba, Malouda

Chelsea Subs: Turnbull, Essien, Zhirkov, Bertrand, Anelka, McEachran, Sala
