Name the Starting XI - Atletico Madrid (a)

Name the Starting XI - Atletico Madrid (a)

Next game for Chelsea



This Wednesday evening, Chelsea resume their Champions` League group participation.

After the 6-0 thrashing of FK Qarabag in the first group game, Chelsea face far tougher opposition in the shape of Atletico Madrid, in Madrid.

Atletico are currently second in La Liga with only Barcelona above them in the table. Our opponents also have a more than decent record in the Champions` League in recent years.

And, with a Premier League fixture against Manchester City, at Stamford Bridge, to follow this weekend, these are a tough few days for Antonio Conte.

Ahead of the fixture, in Madrid, we`re going to ask the familiar question, relating to the starting eleven.

We want you to second guess Antonio Conte and name the starting eleven the boss will select.

Will there be a recall for the suspended in domestic football David Luiz?

Will Conte unleash Eden Hazard on the Spanish side from the kick-off?

Will Antonio play both N`Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko to protect his defence?

Just three questions you might like to ponder when you make your selections.

Right, who`ll get us started?

Courtois, Rudiger, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Bakayoko, Kante, Moses, Hazard, Pedro, Morata. Luiz back in assuming he's OK to play with a broken wrist. If he's out it must be Christensen, sorry for Cahill but I think he set his own season back by getting suspended in the first game. He's not been able to recover his match fitness. Hazard has to be ready now and must play ahead of Willian who's had a poor start to the season. The rest just about pick themselves, Zappacosta is putting pressure on Moses. I'm not sure Kenedy is quite ready to replace Alonso even though he had a stinker on Saturday.

Atleti are a tough nut to crack, an away draw and a win at the Bridge would be a good result . If Cahill starts i fear the worst, he is just as liable to hurt one of his own team members as getting a red or giving away a pen. He is not the player he was in 012 at Munich or even in 13 and 14 . He is like the Gareth Barry of defenders . We are slowly building a great team, by all accounts he and Wilian should start getting used to the Bench as the season moves along ...TC, Azpil, Rudigar Luiz, Kante, Baka,Zapa Fab, Pedro, Hazard and Morata. We need Fab, Hazard and Pedro to unlock that defense .
