Name the Starting XI - Galatasaray (h)

Name the Starting XI - Galatasaray (h)

The Champions League knockout stages are back with us this Tuesday evening when we welcome Galatasaray to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of our last-16 tie.

The fixture is delicately poised and the occasion will be made even more poignant by the return of a certain Didier Drogba.

Chelsea, courtesy of that away goal, will start as the favourites but we all just know the script is there, a script that has Drogba scoring the decisive goal. Let`s all hope that it is a script that will be torn up long before Didier plays a significant role in the game.

After the defeat at Villa Park, on Saturday evening, Jose Mourinho will, no doubt, be contemplating who will be in his starting eleven for this crucial tie. The big question being though - can any of you second guess the eleven that Jose will select?

Who would you play in the middle of the park, in the holding role, with Nemanja Matic illegible having played for Benfica earlier in the competition? Would John Obi Mikel get your vote? Or is it time to recall the experienced Frank Lampard?

What about up front, who should lead the line?

So who`ll get me started as we prepare to face Galatasaray and give Didier Drogba the kind of welcome that will bring tears to more than just his eyes?

with his ability for clinical finishing, why not use schurrle as a second striker or just behind. if shape needs to change due to midway contingencies, he's a super runner on the wings too. why do we insist on discounting our potential world class star?
