TEAM NEWS: CHELSEA V CLUB AMERICA

Posted on: Sun 26 Jul 2009

Carlo Ancelotti is giving action to some of the less-utilised players on the tour so far for this final game.

Chelsea need a draw to win the four-team World Football Challenge and the side starting the quest will have Hilario in goal with a pair of young full-backs in front, Michael Mancienne on the right and Sam Hutchinson on the left.

Ricardo Carvalho provides experience in the backline. Another young player, Scott Sinclair, will be on the right of a midfield diamond that has Deco at the front this time. Frank Lampard takes a well-earned rest.

Salomon Kalou and Daniel Sturridge will lead the attack.

Club América include their new signing, Argentina international midfielder Daniel Montenegro, on the subs' bench for the first time.

Chelsea will line-up in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation as follows:

40 Hilario
