We know Van Ginkel is out for the season. In addition it looks like Ashley Cole is also out and we await news on Fernando Torres. I want to know who YOU think should start for Chelsea tomorrow night?
Without question the last few games have been woeful. I keep hearing Chelsea fans saying "Remember, remember, we're shit in November" and I sincerely hope it isn't the case starting with West Ham tomorrow night.
Chelsea need the right starting eleven, the right tactics, the right attitude and the team collective to have a chance of winning this one and you can bet your life Jose Mourinho has prepared for this game harder than he has for any other this season!
We need a win first and foremost and if a good performance comes with it, so be it. Three points is a must with some big fixtures for the teams around us this weekend.
So, who do YOU think should start for Chelsea tomorrow night?
If I was Mourinho, I would be very wary of the fact we are playing away, under floodlights in a hostile atmosphere that will only inspire the home side. There will be moments when we have to dig in, to defend and remain compact. This is a game that in my view, Mikel MUST start.
We need a solid base to build from and with Ashley Cole predicted to miss this one, I would continue with Azpilicueta at left back next to JT, Gary Cahill and Ivanovic at right back.
I would play Mikel next to Ramires in the two holding roles with Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Kevin De Bruyne as our attacking three. Up top it looks like being Samuel Eto'o but I wouldn't be surprised if Jose starts with Demba Ba due to his height and using that in defensive situations. Ahead of both I would start Fernando Torres of course but I think it's too early for him.
So, I would like to see the following players start tomorrow night:
Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c), Azpilicueta, Mikel, Ramires, De Bruyne, Mata, Hazard and Ba.
What do you people think?
Carefree & KTBFFH!
