Here’s the side we reckon Jose Mourinho will select to start for the Blues in this crucial title clash this lunchtime.
GK) Petr Cech
Obviously, the Czech stopper will start between the sticks barring a late injury.
DR) Branislav Ivanovic
Ivanovic is encouraged by Mourinho to focus primarily on his defensive duties against big sides, although he did venture forward against Manchester City earlier in the season and bag the winner.
DC) Gary Cahill
Cahill and Terry kept Drogba quiet midweek in the Champions League, and will hope to enjoy a similarly easy match against Olivier Giroud.
DC) John Terry
Terry’s probably been the best defender in the top flight this term, marshalling his side expertly at the back. Chelsea have conceded fewer goals than any other top flight side this term.
DL) Cesar Azpilicueta
Cole is injured, meaning first-choice Spaniard Azpiliceuta will definitely start on the left of the back four.
