Now Here`s a Challenge!

Now Here`s a Challenge!

Before each and every game, I try to run a mini-competition whereby I ask you to predict the starting line-up.

Now before each game I suspect you might just take into account the players that are not available, either through injury or suspension.

I`m also, in my role as editor, party to all the comments you leave relating to liking and disliking players and certain combinations.

So here`s the ultimate challenge for you!

With everybody in the current squad fit and available name your starting eleven.

Azpi has really won a lot of Chelsea fans with his performances.

@kakufrank, I'd go the same but I'd be tempted to put Cahill at the back and Luiz in midfield for Mikel as he's more of a forward thinking player and can cover when needed. But either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3

GK:Cech, RB:Azpi, CB:Cahill, CB:Ivanovic, LB: Cole, DM: Mikel, DM: Ramires, RW: Mata, CAM: Oscar, LW: Hazard, CF: Ba. Its difficult leaving lampard and luiz out of my lineup but ivanovic and ramires really deserve to start ahead of them to give the team a better balance cos of the MAZACAR ahead of them. And ivanovic/cahill partnership have been our best centre-back pairing this season.

Everything else being equal i would go with the following starting 11 to line up in a 4-3-3; Cech, Cesar, Cole, JT, Cahill, Oscar, Mikel, Ramires, Mata, Hazard and Ba.
