Simple question but with a difficult answer as Chelsea simply cannot afford to have the same result as Arsenal did last week in Italy.

We're down in the dumps, struggling for form and taking flack from everywhere as AVB continues to struggle with our players. Like I said yesterday, it's as much the players fault as it is AVB and I am glad people are finally seeing that too.

So what of tonight? You'd imagine the players will be up for this one for many reasons. First of all because it's the best club competition in the world, second of all and despite the situation we find ourselves in right now, those players that have been chasing glory in the competition at Chelsea for around six or seven seasons still have the hunger and desire to put right the wrongs of Moscow and finally, because if some of these players are going to be moved on in the summer, it's the best shop window there is right now!.

I prefer to think that our players are professional enough to realise where we are at and to get behind the manager starting tonight. Chelsea have a fantastic chance to grab a good result tonight and bring them back to the Bridge and I believe we HAVE to play our strongest eleven. Saying that, we have to make sure we are defensively sound at the same time.

So, for me tonight my starting eleven in a 4-2-3-1 formation would be:

Cech, Luiz, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Romeu, Essien, Mata, Lampard, Sturridge, Drogba.

Hopefully JT & Cole will be back in the side to start. Ivanovic isn't cutting it for me at the moment at right back so I would move David Luiz along to play there. Cahill and JT get their chance to play together.

Essien to come in next to Romeu for his experience and his stamina and strength. Lampard in for Meireles again for his experience. Mata and Sturridge continue out wide. The big decision will be Torres or Drogba and if Drogba starts you will see all sorts of headlines tonight. The thing is, this will be a game where Napoli will have a lot of possession and will be dangerous so we will need the big man up front to hold the ball up at times and bring others into play. That's why Drogba gets the nod tonight.

Chelsea CAN win this one out there and take one step into the next round, it's whether they pull together and finally give a good performance only time will tell!.

What do you people think? Who do you want to start tonight and why?
