Play the youngsters: Chelsea’s best XI to take the points from Porto and extend winning start to their Champions League campaign?


Head Scratcher

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho continues to scratch his head in view of the performances being given by his boys this season.

The Blues just didn’t get started for the first half of the game against Newcastle at the weekend and all is clearly not right in the camp.

With Diego Costa missing Chelsea were largely toothless in attack and we think that this is currently the biggest problem.

Yes, the defence is struggling too, but the offence needs to take the pressure off by doing their jobs at the other end of the park.

We think that Kenedy deserves another chance. He really causes problems with his pace and guile and has outperformed a lot of his more experienced peers this season.

We are playing him in the hole behind Diego Costa to see if he can be a catalyst for better movement in the final third.

With him feeding Costa and Hazard and Willian providing service from out wide, we may see a more convincing performance in The Champions League than we did in The Premier League at the weekend.

We are also giving another youngster, Baba, a start to inject some more dynamism into the wide areas.

So here is our strongest Chelsea XI.

Blues fans – let’s have your elevens.

    Begovic, Baba, azpilecueta, terry, zouma, ramires, matic. willian, hazard, kenedy, solanke.
    2 Chelsea under 21 defenders and a midfielder on the subs bench. solanke I think would do better than falcao. in January get another striker: What i seen of sakho of west ham he looks good, a real quick striker ( a nuisance to defenders). Greizman in midfield would have had the pace, ( should have bought him)
    Chelsea need extra pace. Chelsea used to have robben and duff, so for now use willain and kenedy. Ramires is like the Duracell bunny – he runs all day!! He deserves his chance on last few games. fabregas seems slow at the moment and should be dropped. Chelsea’s demise is not helped by, fabregas, ivanovic and a striker who at the moment couldn’t hit a barn door, FALCAO. give solanke a few starts and Chelsea may be pleasantly surprised
