Chelsea’s home form has left a lot to be desired since Rafael Benitez took up the post as interim manager but they must turn it around against Stamford Bridge on Sunday and the Spaniard may call on captain John Terry to give the Blues the boost and leadership they desperately need.
John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses, on international duty, are unavailable whilst Oriol Romeu remains the only injury concern.
Arsenal’s defender Laurent Koscielny returns following a one-match suspension, but Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky are sidelined with calf injuries and Gervinho is at the African Cup on Nations.
Who’d be in your Chelsea XI for tomorrow’s game?
C. Azpilicueta – D. Luiz – J. Terry (c) – A. Cole
Ramires – Lampard
Oscar – J. Mata – E. Hazard
Hopefully Terry’s return will have the desired effect for Chelsea as we need to turn our home form around and maintain the gap on the sides that our chasing us.
Which side would you pick?
