ROTATION: Here's SEVEN changes to the Chelsea side to face Hull on Sunday!

As we have seen for the most part this season, Jose Mourinho has settled on his strongest eleven ...

As we have seen for the most part this season, Jose Mourinho has settled on his strongest eleven in the Premier League. Now and again we have seen one or two players change but you can pretty much name what he believes to be his first team based on the majority of his team selections.

After some disappointing performances in recent weeks, with a full weeks rest ahead of us before we make the trip up north to face Hull on Sunday afternoon, I am asking YOU the Chelsea fan reading this post your opinions on whether or not Jose Mourinho should rotate his players and if so, how many?

I am all for it at Hull if I am honest. We should give the fringe players a run out and rest the others. Certain players have had game well below the levels they have set themselves this season and it can do us no harm at all to drop them. If anything, it will help them to refocus their efforts.

As I said above, you can pretty much bet your mortgage on the starting eleven for a big, big game under Mourinho. This has been the selection we have seen more often than not:

So to Hull away on Sunday and on paper, a game we should be winning comfortably. Why not make wholesale changes? Why not go with a starting eleven that is as fresh and hungry as possible?

This is how I WOULD LIKE Jose Mourinho to start on Sunday - Have a look and see what you think!

Some people may moan at my selection(s) but I have decided to stick with Eden Hazard for obvious reasons, Cesc Fabregas as he can open up the door with a sublime pass out of nothing, Cesar Azpilicueta back to his favoured position and John Terry leading from the back. Filipe Luis to finally get a game after spending recent weeks on the bench.

I would really favour a change in formation for this one to 4-4-2 and give Didier Drogba and Loic Remy a go together.

I would also start Juan Cuadrado on the opposite wing to Eden Hazard in order to give him a full ninety minutes because he has had literally five or ten mins here and there. We need to see what he could give us down that right hand side.

In the middle I have gone for Ramires alongside Fabregas because of his energy and the fact that he made a real difference to us when he came on for Matic last Sunday.

At the back, the impressive Kurt Zouma to play alongside John Terry. In moments of late, we have really lacked someone with natural pace and Zouma offers us that. In away games in particular, it could be decisive.

Finally, despite the fact that Courtois has done little wrong of late, I would go for Petr Cech to come back into the side.

So to conclude, that's seven changes for this weekend against Hull and should give a freshness to our team. With a switch to 4-4-2 with the Drogba and Remy playing together, it should provide us with more attacking options.

What do you people think?

  1. Absolutely agree with the rotation of Ivan at the back. However, Cahill has been good for us so would like to see him stay as centre back. The answer is to move Zouma into deep midfield. We need his energy, strength and pace in the run in.

    Fabregas is a problem at the moment because he is clearly tired. We need him to have more impact attacking and assisting, rather than defending. So it makes more sense to partner Zouma alongside Matic, and give Fabregas the number 10 role.

    Cuadrado, and Hazard for certain. Would like to see Costa and Remy as the front two. Costa has been getting better and is so unlucky not to have generated more goals from penalty decisions.

    That line up would have a very strong deep midfield and allow Matic to stroll forward. Fabregas can work magic in the front without having to run so far back. Cuadrado would give us more width and zip in attack.

    On 70 mins, bring on Loftus Cheek for Matic.

  2. I would change the back four by replacing Ivanovich and Cahill with Zouma and Luis, moving Azpilicueta to RB. This would be nothing to do with resting players, rather making our defence stronger down the right side.

    I have to say I completely disagree with resting players against Hull, it will not be an easy game, we've not had an easy game since Swansea! If our current form remains, then we're likely to lose to Arsenal, Liverpool and United regardless of selection. It is absolutely imperative that we play what Mourinho believes is our strongest side at Hull and against every other side where you may "expect" us to win.

    1. Yes I agree with u 100% we need something fresh right now we're not doing good at all

  3. I prefer Zouma mid field and rest Matic. As for Cuadrado, Why did we buy him? I have not seen any hope for him in his performances so far. Lightweight and poor distributor.

  5. Replace Ramires with Matic, Remy with Oscar and Costa with Drogba, then we are talking!

  6. I like the idea of seeing if Cuadrado's pace on the other side may draw some attention off Hazard, maybe free him up a bit. And Remy/Costa as a nice threat. Would be a fun experiment.
