It was an impressive opening weekend for Chelsea in the 2014/15 Premier League as they beat Burnley 3-1 on Monday in convincing fashion.
Now they take on another newly promoted side from the Championship in the shape of Leicester City and here’s how fanatix thinks Jose Mourinho’s men will lineup against the Foxes.
GK – Thibaut Courtois
Earned his place between the sticks against the Clarets ahead of longstanding No.1 Petr Cech and after a solid display should maintain his position.
RB – Branislav Ivanovic
It was a strong performance from Ivanovic at right-back despite the fact many thought the Serbian would lose his place in the starting XI this season.
CB – Gary Cahill
Made up one half of the best central defensive partnership in the English top tier last term and his fine form also earned the England international a place in the PFA Team of the Year.
CB – John Terry
Although now considered a veteran the captain and Cahill have formed a strong understanding at the back and breaking them down will be difficult for Leicester.
LB – Cesar Azpilicueta
Proved over the past 12 months that he is a reliable left-back, despite being naturally right-sided, and is likely to continue keeping new signing Filipe Luis out of the team.
