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

Name the Starting XI - Atletico Madrid (h)

Chelsea stand on the precipice of another Champions League Final, this time in Lisbon.

A decent performance tonight, allied with that little bit of luck you normally need, could see Jose Mourinho face his former club, Real Madrid, in Lisbon next month.

But it would be churlish to under-estimate the threat Atletico Madrid will present, the Spanish club (currently top of La Liga) are the only team left in the Champions League who are yet to be beaten in the competition this season.

Jose, being as canny as he is, will have formulated a plan, but our leading question to you is - considering we have several players suspended and a few struggling with injuries, what will be the starting eleven that Jose will opt for?.

The floor is all yours!

Schwarzer, Bane, Terry,Cahill,Azpi,Luiz,Ramires,Oscar, Hazard, Willian, Eto'o. Same as Zeenut since Schurrle might be unfit for the game.

schwarzer. iva cahill terry azpi luiz rami willzard oscar ba as i am not sure if eto'o is fully fit. if fit then eto for ba
Finney_angel
Ba is a good choice, our most inform striker in recent weeks.
Seabourch
i sincerely will go with 4-2-2-1-1 format. Now that Terry and Cech are back, i have no right to amend the back five. In the center, Luiz is an obvious choice, since lamps is suspended, i will opt for Ramires (i believe he will have a good game today, his physicality will help halt the pace of AM). Just in front of them i will push for Hazard on the left flank to do his own thing, i will then throw Shurrle on the right flank to do his sneaky runs behind AM. From there, i will plant Willian just behind Etoo in front. Cech Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpillicueta. Luiz Ramirez Shurrle, Hazard Willian Etoo. Ivanovic, Cahil, Terry, Azpillicueta.

Nana Kakraba, Cech's not back. If all fit team picks itself…………………Schwarzer….Brana/Cahill/Terry/Azpi……Luiz/Ramires…….Willian/Oscar/Hazard…….Eto'o

Schwarzer, Iva - Cahill - Terry - Dave.. Luiz Oscar Willian, Hazard Schrulle, Eto... I prefer Oscar and Willian pulling the strings infront of David Luiz than Rammy. (don't need to say why) Schurrleon the right, Hazard Left (interchanging) behind Etoo or Ba. Torres to coming in the second half if we are leading and reverting to Counters.
Dwonder
Schwazer Ivanovic Terry Cahil Cesar. luiz Rambo... Hazard Oscar Willian... Etoo. Insha Allah.. we will win dis match...UP blues
