Name the Starting XI - Newcastle (h)

The games, as the season approaches its business end, are starting to come thick and fast.

This weekend we welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea eager to capitalize on the magnificent Monday night win up at the Etihad Stadium, against Manchester City.

The eleven that started on Monday night all did a marvelous job for Jose but Jose knows he has a big squad to keep happy and that there are horses for courses.

So who will get the nod this weekend with regards to the starting eleven?

In our regular feature we`re asking you to try and second guess Jose and match up perfectly the starting eleven he opts for.

As far as suspensions go we believe everybody is available and as far as injuries go, only Marco Van Ginkel and Fernando Torres are not available for this fixture.

So who`ll get me started?

Fernando is back in first team training today and might make the bench, I believe mourinho would go with the team that got a win against city, with the exception of ramires. Czech,iva,Cahill,terry,Azpi,matic,Luiz, oscar, hazard, salah and eto'o

The intent should be to hopefully have this match in the bag by the end of the first half..NewCastle is in turmoil right now and we need to take maximum advantage and increase our goal differential as much as possible. The loss of Yohan Cabaye, the resignation of their DOF, injuries, suspension for Loic Remy..etc etc, not to mention the added incentive that these guys dealt us one of the few BPL defeats we have this season. I would go with the following line up; Cech, Cole, Cesar, JT, Cahill, Matic, Lamps, Oscar, Hazard, Salah and Eto O Subs; Schwarzer, Iva, Luiz, Ramires, Ba, Schurrle.

When Mou said Salah plays against New Castle did he mean he starts or makes a sub appearance???

Found myself a Muddy Pie at home, not my first one as once on the road, I ran into one and it wasn't so good, so at home I decided to Cech it out with Petr first. He didn't like the left side as it tasted like Ash and Cole, so he cut it out and decided on a salad instead, a Cesar salad. My boy Gary walked in and said it tasted Terry-ble, I told him he was the Bane of my existence and he said he ain't Luizing sleep over it and laughed at me as he dove into his autoMatic. So there I am thinking about the Best Picture Oscar and who would win when Mr da Silva flashed his Hazards in my driveway meaning it was time to Et'o--O I spelt the word eat wrong...
