According to various reports after Jose Mourinho's press conference yesterday, Diego Costa, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic are likely to be dropped for tonight. I want to know who YOU think should start?

Yesterday I had posted that Jose stated that Oscar and Baba Rahman are selected for the game with Falcao out injured. In my opinion the Rahman selection in place of Ivanovic with Azpilicueta moving back over to the right hand side is the natural replacement.

With Oscar coming into the team, again it's my view that it would be in place of Mikel from the side that lost at Everton.

Now, with reports that Costa and Terry are also to be withdrawn indicates clearly that Gary Cahill will come in next to Zouma. Jose Mourinho admitted before Everton that the only reason Cahill did not play was because JT had been training with him during the whole International break while Cahill was away with England. I personally thought that Cahill would come in for Zouma who had a disappointing game at Goodison Park but it appears the press have us believe that I am wrong!

As for Costa? He hasn't looked anywhere near the same player as last season and I posted here that I wanted to see Loic Remy given a much needed start, his first of the season with Falcao being injured.

As with any game, there is even more speculation ahead of tonight stating that Nemanja Matic could also be dropped for the game with Ruben Loftus-Cheek being handed a start in the deeper midfield positions next to Cesc Fabregas? What do you think of that?

We all know the manager. We know that he likes to change no more than two or three positions from game to game and I honestly cannot see as many as FIVE or SIX changes to the starting eleven tonight as being predicted.

The changes I can see happening will be Rahman for Ivanovic, Cahill for Zouma, Oscar for Mikel and Remy for Costa.

What do you think? Who would be in YOUR starting eleven to be announced in a little under two hours time?
