Andre Schurrle and John Mikel Obi both took part in full training with Samuel Eto'o working on his fitness away from the first team at Cobham this morning. It's a massive game tomorrow night and I am asking YOU the Chelsea fan reading this post who YOU think should be starting to give us the best chance to get the win and to go through!
The Midfield Two:
As we know Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are both cup tied and unavailable and Ramires is suspended after being booked in Paris last Wednesday. We are short of numbers in the middle of midfield and it now comes down to a toss up between Frank Lampard, David Luiz and Mikel for those two all important positions.
One important thing to note here is that I believe with David Luiz being rested to the bench for Stoke last Saturday, he WILL start. We just have to decide where we believe he will be!
The lone striker:
I have read or seen comments made in the media that Jose Mourinho may decide to risk Samuel Eto'o tomorrow which although I can understand, just seems crazy for me with important games in the league coming up.
Should he stick with Fernando Torres after he looked tired and leggy during the second half against Stoke or should he give Demba Ba a go? Ba is someone who has popped up and scored important goals for us before!
The back five:
Should Mourinho stick with the same (normally reliable) back five that also started in Paris or should he make a change? Ashley Cole is now back in contention after his substitute appearance against Stoke on Saturday and David Luiz is available to play at the back if Mourinho decides to go with the Lampard and Mikel combination.
The attacking three:
Looking at the fact that both Eden Hazard and Oscar were both rested to the bench for Stoke, You would have to imagine they are both due to start tomorrow. The question is, who should play alongside both of them? Should it be Andre Schurrle or Willian?
Plenty of questions to answer and I would love to hear your thoughts on the team selection for tomorrow. This is massive and we need people out there to stand up and be counted.
My team selection is as follows:
Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c), Azpilicueta, Lampard, Luiz, Willian, Oscar, Hazard and Torres.
What do you think?
