'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Name the Starting XI (plus) - Spurs (h)

It`s that time of the week again!

After suffering the latest round of dull international friendly fixtures, we can finally turn our attentions to the upcoming, monumental home fixture against Tottenham Hotspurs.

With Chelsea nicely placed four points ahead of the chasing pack, it`s imperative that Chelsea don`t drop any points this weekend and maintain on course for a plausible title challenge.

However our visitors, Tottenham, still have Champions League ambitions of their own and, hopefully, will be coming to Stamford Bridge to claim all three points rather than park the proverbial bus.

But, and this time we`re expanding the use of the old grey matter, we`ve a few questions for you to ponder over.

1 - Who do you think Jose Mourinho will select for his starting eleven?

2 - Which starting eleven would YOU like to see take to the field of play?

3 - What do you reckon the final score will be?

4 - Who will be the first goal-scorer in the game?

You never know, if the response to the above is good enough we might delve into our famous vault and award a prize to the Vital Chelsea member who gets the closest to answering questions 1, 3 and 4 correctly!

i don't think Mourinho picks the team though.... it's his dog that does the final selection. Mourinho just coaches i think....

Martinez Marchenbeck
Cech-Ivanovic-Cahill-Terry-Azpi-Matic-Lampard-Ramires-Schrulle-Hazard-Torres. I dont think Brazilian will be used much except Ramires (played just 20-25mins)...Luiz, Oscar, Willian will be rested. Maybe Even Ramires could be rested and Mikel could be played....But, we cant afford to draw/lose this one.
Blu_run
Since our 4 Brazillians have been been to South Africa I can't see Jose starting more than 2 of them.
CobhamBlue
@willfry "Chelski" really? Mate, how about League Leaders 3 - 1 Scumspuddies, huh?
HGH Magic
Add Cech to that @Kinky...and bingo!

Going with @Kinky's lineup as well.

Be informed folks. Hazard is injured(ankle) and may likely miss the Scumspuddies challenge.
HGH Magic
HGH, Hazard declared himself fit already!!!! Well, Jose might think otherwise!!! :) :)
Tunez
Off topic, with the way diego costa performed against italy yesterday i'm having a second thought on him as striker leading the line for us next season. he was poor throughtout last night against italy's park defense, and he didn't muster a shot on target, he strikes me as another lukaku type striker who only delivers when put clear through on goal, having watch some of his games his pattern is very different from those of suarez and aguero,and i believe a suarez or aguero type striker is a must for our kind of set-up.
oscarr
@ HGH... he trained today with the rest of the squad. we at chelsea are made of better, stronger stuff than Arsenal..... Wishere out for Six weeks... I pity Wenger.
Dwonder
Oh Tunez and Dwonder? Good stuff again from Eva Caneiro - a genius whom I'd readily recommend for the Nobel Prize in Sports Medicine! @Dwonder - heard Ramsey, who imo is a better goal threat and all-round midfielder than Wilshere, is back in training though. Wenger's other specialty(apart from failure) seems to be finding a way of having his key players injured when it matters most which almost always leads to their usual February/March meltdown. I won't be surprised if one of Rosicky or Arteta breaks a leg before month's end lol ;)
HGH Magic
lol@HGH , well said even if we are "fake" league leaders lmao
Blue_Mel
come now..Wenger is doing what he is good at ...the specialist in failure
Blue_Mel

jeffixy
lol Blue_Mel. Elsewhere, word has it Wenger is fuming with Daniel Agger over Jack Wilshere injury. Lmao
HGH Magic
Cech,Iva,Cahill,Terry,Azpi,Matic,Frank,Willian.Schurrlle,Hazard,Eto'o. In this game last May Luiz playing in midfield,did his ball watching routine,completely losing his man and let Sigurdsson equalise in the 80th minute.
THEBREEZE
1 - Who do you think Jose Mourinho will select for his starting eleven? Cech, Cesar, JT, Cahill, Iva, Luiz, Matic, Hazard, Oscar, Schurrle, El Nino 2 - Which starting eleven would YOU like to see take to the field of play? Schwarzer, Cesar, Iva, JT, Cahill, Luiz, Matic, Hazard, Schurrle, Salah, Eto With subs; Cech, Mikel, Lamps, Cole, El nino, Oscar 3 - What do you reckon the final score will be? I hope 3-0 for us but suspect it may end up being a closer goal margin hopefully with us winning and securing all the 3 points. 4 - Who will be the first goal-scorer in the game? David Luiz
GabeU
