Arsenal vs Chelsea, Capital One Cup Fourth Round; Live at 3:45pm ET: Open Thread

arsenal chelsea Arsenal vs Chelsea, Capital One Cup Fourth Round; Live at 3:45pm ET: Open Thread

Arsenal plays Chelsea today at the Emirates in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup, with both clubs fighting for a place in the quarter-final. In the battle of the London clubs, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has never defeated Jose Mourinho in any competition.

For viewers in the United States, there’s only one place to find Arsenal against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup on US television and Internet today, and that’s beIN SPORT.

Programming note: Even if you don’t have a TV subscription to beIN SPORT, you can access the channel live via an online streaming service DishWorld for $10/month. Read our review of DishWorld. And sign up for DishWorld via their website. Setup takes just minutes.

Starting line-ups:

Arsenal: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Wilshere, Rosicky, Cazorla, Ryo, Bendtner

Subs: Viviano, Sagna, Hayden, Yennaris, Ozil, Giroud, Park

Chelsea: Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Cahill, D Luiz, Bertrand; Essien (c), Mikel; De Bruyne, Mata, Willian; Eto’o

Subs: Blackman, Ivanovic, Kalas, Ramires, Hazard, Torres, Ba

In team news, both sides have fielded relatively equal teams with a mixed of proven players (Mata, Wilshere, Ramsey, Luiz), footballers who don’t get much playing time (Azpilicueta, Essien, Ryo, Fabianski) and fringe player with a lot to prove (De Bruyne, Bendtner). But the biggest difference between the two sides today is the depth on the bench, with Chelsea have the better options to bring on talent if they’re needed to push for a victory.

Today’s Capital One Cup games televised on US TV and Internet are:

Arsenal vs Chelsea (League Cup), 3:45pm, beIN SPORT and DishWorld
Burnley vs West Ham (League Cuo), 3:45pm, beIN SPORT Play
