Chelsea make the trip to Southampton tomorrow, fresh from a good performance and three points against Liverpool. In some ways, this game has now become just as important for Chelsea. Can Jose Mourinho's men deliver another three points to keep the pressure on Arsenal and Man City? Who do YOU think should start for Chelsea in this one?
As we know, Frank Lampard is out with a muscular injury. We are awaiting news on Ivanovic and David Luiz is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Liverpool. The good news is that Ramires is back from suspension and available.
Looking at the starting eleven from Sunday, you have to wonder just how many changes Jose will make? Lampard and Luiz are the two enforced changes (three if Ivanovic is ruled out) that we know at the moment. Would you rotate anyone else?
In my opinion, I would start with both Cesar Azpilicueta AND Ashley Cole as full backs alongside Gary Cahill who was immense on Sunday, and John Terry.
Mikel to come in for Frank Lampard alongside Ramires who comes in for David Luiz.
I would also start Fernando Torres in this one in place of Samuel Eto'o with Demba Ba on the bench.
As for our attacking three and thinking of giving people a rest, why not rotate Oscar for Juan Mata and Andre Schurrle for Willian and keep Eden Hazard in the team?
So my preferred starting eleven for Southampton away tomorrow would be:
Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry(c), Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Schurrle, Mata, Hazard and Torres.
What do you people think?
