After a couple of months struggling with a shallow and unbalanced squad that was suffering fatigue, suspensions and a serious lack of form Chelsea’s fortunes could improve after the return of a few key individuals.
Eden Hazard came back for the 4-1 win against Wigan, as did David Luiz. Champions of Africa John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses return to the fold, whilst Demba Ba is once again available after sitting out the Sparta Prague game because he’s cup-tied in the Europa League. Chelsea captain John Terry has also said that he’s ready for action.
Oriol Romeu is now the only long-term absentee for the Blues as he recovers from a knee injury.
My Chelsea XI:
C. Azpilicueta – D. Luiz – J. Terry (c) – R. Bertrand
J. Mikel – Ramires
V. Moses – J. Mata – E. Hazard
