Hazard In: A Pacy Chelsea XI to beat Stoke



Chelsea got a great win on Wednesday which could be pivotal to their whole season.

But after a gruelling game in The Champions League they could certainly have picked a better fixture than Stoke away this weekend.

With no midweek football The Potters will be fresh and ready to take at least a point from The Blues.

There are two ways that Jose could approach this one.

He can either load his team with giants and try to escape with a smash and grab 1-0.

Or, and this is our preference, he can load his side with pace and expose the slightly softer centre that this more football-centric Stoke side has under Mark Hughes.

Willian did an awful lot of running on Wednesday but we think he has to stay in the side. With Hazard coming back in that will give Chelsea great pace down the flanks.

Chelsea’s poor from has been particularly surprising given that their squad has remained largely fit.

Only Falcao and Courtois are definitely out of this one with Ivanovic returning to fitness and possibly ready for selection.

But we are going with Cesar and Baba down the flanks to offer more dynamism and attacking threat.

So here is our XI to take the points off Stoke.

Chelsea fans: let’s have your teams.
