Egg's? What do you mean eggs? Well I take it you haven't heard or seen Jose Mourinho's press conference ahead of our opening Champions League group game against FC Basel tomorrow night?
Talking in jovial mood, Jose revealed that he intends to play FOUR youngsters under the age of 22 in his starting line up. Just who are those players?
Here's what Jose said:
(Source)'Beautiful young eggs. Eggs that need a mum, in this case a dad, to take care of them, to keep them warm during the winter, to bring the blanket and to work and improve them. One day they will arrive in the moment where the weather changes, the sun rises, you break the eggs and the eggs are ready to go to the top level.It's important for the club, for everybody, it's important for a team of kids, not just kids but a team that for example will tomorrow start the match with four players under 22, and if you think as we think in the club, in the evolution of the players and the team, it's very important for them to play on the big stage, and the big stage is the Champions League.
First things first, I hope we are not under estimating Basel as all know just how good they can be. They were two difficult games against them in the Europa League semi finals last season!
Secondly, who do you think the four young players will be tomorrow night? In addition to the above, he also revealed that Frank Lampard and Oscar will start the game so we know Oscar is one of them.
Who are the other three?
I personally believe that we will see Marko Van Ginkel given his first Chelsea start next to Lampard in midfield which would be fantastic for him ( I am sure Ramires is suspended but unable to confirm at this stage ).
Could we see Kevin De Bruyne come in for Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle keep his position in the team or would Schurrle drop out and De Bruyne come in on the opposite wing to Hazard, either side of Oscar?
What do you people think about Jose's young eggs?
