Tomorrow night, Chelsea travel to Switzerland to take on FC Basel in the Europa League semi final first leg and with our priority of finishing in the top four taking a blow by dropping two points on Sunday at Liverpool, it will be interesting to see how Rafa Benitez approaches this one.
The Europa League is the final chance of silverware Chelsea has to aim for this season no disrespect to the other sides left in the competition, this is a trophy we should we winning this season without fail!.
No matter what, we need to do a professional job in Basel and it's important that we get the team selection right with Swansea next up at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The good news today is that Gary Cahill and Ashley Cole returned to full training ahead of travelling to Switzerland and are in contention to start. Demba Ba remains cup tied and is unavailable.
So, I am asking you the Chelsea fan reading this to give me YOUR starting eleven to take on Basel but remember this is no easy game. They have beaten Manchester United and Tottenham in recent seasons and if we are to beat them over both games, we need to be strong.
This is my selected eleven to start tomorrow:
Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c), Cole, Luiz, Mikel, Ramires, Mata, Hazard, Torres.
The one I am not sure about is Frank Lampard. I personally would play him against Swansea at home on Sunday and then at home next Thursday in the second leg because let's face it, Benitez is not going to play him at Old Trafford the week after is he!.
What do you people think? Who would you like to see start the game!
Carefree & KTBFFH!
