Last season was pretty amazing for the blues, and so are the expectations for this season. Chelsea are going to commence the season by facing Arsenal in the final of FA Community Shield at the Wembley Stadium.
This fixture is going to be one hell of a game as both teams had a very successful pre-season and are raring to go against each other. Apart from that, Chelsea are also going to see Petr Cech in the opposite goal post for the first time since he joined Arsenal. Here is Chelsea’s strongest possible lineup to face Arsenal.
Goalkeeper – Thibaut Courtois
Both Courtois and Begovic had an amazing pre-season, but the chances of Courtois to start are very strong as Begovic is still adapting with the squad.
Full Backs – Branislav Ivanovic & Cesar Azpilicueta
Both of them had a very good pre-season and were excellent in the previous season as well. And well, after the departure of Filipe Luis these two are the only experienced full backs we have in our squad! This combo has hardly failed to deliver and with the likes of these two Chelsea’s flanks are going to be deadly in both attack and defense.
Center Backs – John Terry & Gary Cahill
Last season Terry and Cahill’s duo was unbeatable and unarguably the best in EPL. Till now, in the pre-season, Terry and Cahill have managed a very impressive performance hence the chances for these two to start are very strong.
Central Midfield – Cesc Fabregas & Nemanja Matic
Just like Terry & Cahill’s duo in the middle of the defense, Matic & Fabregas’s duo was unarguably the best in the central mid position. With the likes of Matic’s defensive ability and Fabregas’s world-class playmaking skills, Chelsea’s midfield is going to be strong.
Attacking Midfield – Moses, Oscar & Hazard
This fantastic trio did wonders in the pre-season, and we expect them to start tomorrow. Hazard’s skills, Moses’ new found form, and Oscar’s omnipresence will be the perfect formula for Chelsea to beat Arsenal.
Striker – Diego Costa
Despite the frequent injuries, Costa managed to net 20 goals in 26 EPL appearances and last time when Diego was unleashed against Arsenal he scored a beautiful goal via Fabregas’s assist. So in spite of the presence of Falcao and Remy, the chances of Costa to start are very high if the Spaniard is fully fit!
