With the massive FA Cup semi final on Sunday on the horizon, Chelsea have a tough Europa League quarter final second leg in Russia against Rubin Kazan on Thursday and I just wonder how YOU the Chelsea fan reading this, thinks that Rafa should approach the game against Rubin.

Obviously, at this stage, I would prioritise (personally) the FA Cup Semi Final ahead of the Europa League game as it's the most realistic opportunity to win a trophy.

Rafa Benitez has had no problem with rotating the Chelsea squad for the run of games we have had and I just wonder if he will want to do the same again and keep his best eleven fresh for Sunday?

If that's the case, how would you approach Rubin Kazan? Would you set up defensively to protect the two goal lead we have or would you set up the opposite way?

If so, who would start this one in Russia?

I believe that we need to pick a balanced side for Rubin but to to protect our lead. It could be dangerous but we have no option with all the travelling the players will have to do. We must give ourselves the better options for Sunday.

So, in saying that, my selected eleven to take on Rubin on Thursday is as follows:

Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry(c), Bertrand, Mikel, Lampard, Moses, Benayoun, Marin, Torres.

Now I know before people say it that the Mikel and Lampard combination in the middle isn't as effective as with Ramires there but we have to save his legs. Also, Lampard works hard in defensive areas in addition to Mikel and would provide protection.

We have no choice but to play Torres because of the injury to Ba, Bertrand because of the injury to Cole, I have chosen Ivanovic to play over Azpilicueta to give "Dave" a rest for Sunday and Oscar to also be given a rest with Yossi Benayoun to come in and see what he can provide us in that role just in behind Torres.

What do you people think? Would you play a different side and have a different approach?

Carefree & KTBFFH!
