Here’s the side we reckon Jose Mourinho will select to start for the Blues against Fulham today.
GK) Petr Cech
The Czech stopper will definitely start between the sticks for the Blues unless he picks up a late injury. He’s been an ever present for the side with the Premier League’s best defensive record.
DR) Branislav Ivanovic
Ivanovic is a guaranteed start when fit, and should take up his usual position on the right of the back four. He will likely be charged with dealing with the threat of Riise and Richardson up Fulham’s left.
DC) Gary Cahill
Cahill has been virtually ever present for the Blues this term alongside John Terry, weighing in with one goal and assist apiece as well.
DC) John Terry
The Blues skipper has arguably been the best defender in the Premier League this term, and he’s an automatic starter under Jose Mourinho. He will hope for a quiet afternoon against Fulham today.
DL) Cesar Azpilicueta
Mourinho recently said that if he had a team of Azpiliceuta’s, Chelsea would win the Champions League! He’s naturally a right-back, but starts on the left of the back four for the Blues, with Ashley Cole having to content himself with a spot on the bench.
