Tonight as part of a massive week for Chelsea, we make the long trip up north to take on Gus Poyet's Sunderland. After Sunday's win against Southampton, how many changes if any should Jose Mourinho make? You pick the starting eleven!
I believe that Jose Mourinho will make at least three changes to the side that started against Southampton with one being an enforced change due to the injury to Oscar that rules him out of this one.
Kevin De Bruyne looks like finally being handed a start and I believe he will come in for Oscar and Ramires will revert back to central midfield.
Next to Ramires and in place of Michael Essien, I believe that Mikel will come in to add some defensive stability in front of the back four which would be the second change.
The third and final change could see Demba Ba start ahead of Fernando Torres.
We need consistency but need to refresh one or two areas and those are the changes I would make. To reconfirm, my selection and the team I believe Jose will select tonight will be:
Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c), Azpilicueta, Mikel, Ramires, De Bruyne, Mata, Hazard and Demba Ba.
What do you people think?
Carefree & KTBFFH!
