Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea: Cahill, Luiz, Fabregas and Hazard to all start for Antonio Conte.

Antonio Conte takes his Chelsea side to Madrid to face Diego Simeone's Atletico tomorrow night and all eyes will be on the team he selects to take on one of the most organised/disciplined sides in Europe.

Your guess is as as good as mine if I am honest but we have the players that can really hurt Atletico. Should Antonio Conte select a team to take the game to our hosts or should we give Simeone's side the respect that they deserve and look to keep things tight?

One thing is 100% certain, Conte's team selection will be totally different to that of two weeks ago that battered Qarabag FK and let's not forget that David Luiz is available for selection in the Champions League with his ban just covering the domestic games.

To start with, I fully expect Gary Cahill to take his place in the side and captain the blues in this one. I cannot understand the outrage and quote simply ridiculous comments being made on social media about him at the moment. He is our captain so get behind the bloke!

He will start on the left side of our back three with Cesar Azpilicueta on the right and David Luiz back in the middle. Our tried and trusted back three that formed the cornerstone of our success last term.

Marcos Alonso and Davide Zappacosta to start in the wing-back positions. Tough on Victor Moses but we need a calm defensive head for this game and the Italian gets the nod.

Now I personally would spring a surprise and play N'Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko AND Cesc Fabregas in this one. Fabregas to play in a slightly advanced position with the two Frenchmen sitting in behind to negate the space that Atletico like to try and expose.

Now unfortunately that means that both Pedro and Willian will have to revert to the bench to allow Eden Hazard to come into the side from the start to play as an out-an-out number ten; supporting Alvaro Morata up front.

Courtois, Azpi, Luiz, Cahill (c), Zappacosta, Alonso, Kante, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Hazard and Morata. 

That in my opinion is our best team from the start tomorrow. Whats yours?

  1. Rudiger ahead of Cahill and Willian ahead of Fabregas, otherwise your selection. Luiz in for his experience but if Cahill does start I'd be happy with Christensen in place of Luiz.

  2. Cahill is our captain and top flight defender, who puts his body on the line, and is a danger in the oppositions box from set pieces and corners.Everyone should get behind him.
