Your Starting XI - Juventus (a)

With Roberto, seemingly, being criticized for his starting eleven selection, in the defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, all eyes will be on who he selects for the crunch Champions League fixture, against Juventus, on Tuesday evening.

But, whilst the world waits for that all important team-sheet to be provided to the officials, we`re after your input.

Who would you select as your starting eleven for a fixture that could well turn out to be season defining?

Take it away!

This starting 11 will make or break our season and will either buy RDM some time or essentially turn him into a "dead coach walking" depending in the result. My suggestions are as follows; Cech, Cesar, Iva, Cahill, Bertrand, Ramires, Mikel, Mata, Oscar, Hazard and Sturridge. Bench; Turnbull, Moses, Torres, Luiz, Ferraira, Marin. The rest is left to prayers that we can secure at least a draw and even better still a win that would reset our season.

Cech, Cezar, Cahill, Iva, Bert, Ramires, Mikel, Marin, Hazard, Mata and Oscar, I think Chelsea dont need to play wif a striker as both of them are crap, one plays wif no confidence or speed or agility, d oda makes some suprising decisions...play lyk da Spaniards and we can make it....forca blues
chokoz_cfs
Err why does everyone's line-up include Bertrand? I mean Ashley Cole is fit again; he was just rested for the West Brom match. Bertrand nearly costed us the game against Shakhtar.

I agree with GabeU tho except for Bertrand. Torres and Luiz should be benched. Ivanovic should move to CB and Azpilcueta should be RB (he was brilliant at defending as RB in the past few games).

Cech-azpi,Cahill,ivanovic,cole-mikel,Oscar,ramires-mata,hazard,sturridge. Would set up 4-3-3

If Cole is actually fit again then absolutely he needs to start instead of Bertrand who has recently looked rather fragile at LB. I was not aware that Ashley is back to match fitness..if that is the case then my starting line up would have him instead of bertrand.
GabeU
chech cezar iva cahill cole ryan mikel romeu rami ferrera luiz....let put this line up and make them keep on guessing for the rest of the match that who is playing in which postion and who is the got damm striker...must be fun..
shlok27
Cech-Azpi-Iva-Cahill-Luiz---Mikel-Rami-Oscar---Mata-Sturridge-Moses. 4-3-3.......if Cole is fit then start him instead of Luiz.
SameX
I think it'll be the same 4-3-2-1 , with Azpi , Iva , Cahill , Cole - mikel ,ramires- oscar ,hazard,mata- sturridge or if its a 4-3-3 , same defence , mikel-mata-ramires , oscar-sturridge-hazard.
CFCTalal
Cech. Azpili. Cahill. Ivanovic. Cole. Mikel. Ramires. Oscar. Mata. Hazard & Sturridge
chuks09
Cech-Azpi,Ivanovic-Cahill-Bertrand-Ramires-Mikel,Mata-Oscar-Hazard,Sturridge. Or Drop Hazard and play Luiz in midfield in a 4-3-3 formation.
foreign_viewer
My lineup would be cech! Cole, cahill,iva,cesar,mikel,rammy,oscar,moses,sturridge,mata in a 4-3-3 formation, with mata playing from RW and swapping with oscar, we'll win subs- luiz,betrand,hazard,torres,marin,piazon,ferreira and turnbull, lord please no red cards tommorow.
Desmondadonis
well di matteo will go for, cech, iva, cole, luiz, cahill, rammy, mikel, mazacar and perhaps sturridge, but i will go for, cech, azip(watever his name is, or ohh dave), cahill, iva, cole, rammy, mikel, mazacar and definitely sturridge

Cech-Azpilicueta-Cahill-Ivanovic-Cole-Mikel-Ramires-Oscar-Mata-Hazard-Sturridge

Let us win this one mates

I have a feeling throwing in every available deadly armour in our disposal will fetch us the win. That is going wit a highly offensive line up. That said ,my line up in a seemingly 4-1-4-1 formation or a partial 4-3-3 formation will be -cech. Azpi. Iva. Cahill. Cole. Rami. Oscar. Mata. Hazard. Moses. Sturridge..... However,i have predict RDM to go with...cech,azpi,iva,cahil,cole,mikel,rami,mata,oscar,hazard,sturridge...in 4-2-3-1
Ohans
i don't know why but my instinct says that RDM will start with torres upfront!
Chelsea n Torres Fan
cech,azpi,cahill,iva,cole,mikel,ramires,mata,oscar,marin,torres..subs:turnbull,luiz,bertrand,romeu,hazard,moses,sturridge...on 60th minute hazard will come for marin and sturridge will come for torres to inject some pace.another one probably moses for oscar on 80th minute...
Chelsea n Torres Fan
Cech - Azipilicueta - Iva - Cahill - Cole - Mikel - Ramires - Moses - Oscar - Mata - Sturridge.....
Blu_run
Cech-cole-cahill-ivanovic-azpi-mikel-ramires-oscar-mata-moses-hazard
