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

Name the Starting XI - Burnley (a)

Did anyone else find the weekend torturous?

Whilst everyone else got their 2014 / 2015 season underway, we were sat waiting for Monday night to come along.

Monday night fixtures have never been a favourite of mine but that`s a gripe to be debated another day.

Instead, let`s concentrate on the matter in hand and the tricky-looking fixture against newly promoted Burnley tonight.

With Jose Mourinho having admitted that Schurrle, Willian, Oscar and Ramires are not, individually, ready for the big kick-off, it makes the task we`re about to set you a little easier.

For the first time this season, but as our regulars will know from last season, we`re asking you to second guess who Jose Mourinho will opt for in his starting eleven!

So who`ll get us started?

Well it's been a long weekend, but bow it's upon us. If the 4 above names don't start then, I'd go with Courtois- Iva Cahill JT Azpi- Matic MVG- Hazard Fabregas Salah- Costa.

I'd love to see us surprise Burnley with a 3-5-2 formation.. Courtois - Iva, Terry,Cahill - Luis, Matic, Fabregas, Hazard, Azpi - Costa, Torres. But expect it to be a 4-2-3-1 Courtois - Iva,Terry,Cahill,Luis - Matic, Fabregas - Hazard, Salah,Torres - Costa

Courtois; Ivanovic,Cahill,Terry,Luis; Matic,Fabregas; Salah,Hazard,Torres; Costa. Would ve prefered if Jose were to Start the season with Cech and let Courtois do exactly what he was running away from, that is challenge Cech for that #1 spot.

Courtois; Iva, JT, Cahill, Luis; Matic, Fabregas, Azpi; Hazard, Salah; Costa
