Three weeks into the Premier League and we still haven’t won a match? That’s not an ideal way to start the season for the defending Champions, is it?
After succumbing to a disappointing defeat at the Etihad last week, Blues have the perfect chance to score their first win in the Premier League today!
The Hawthorns haven’t been a happy hunting ground recently for the Blues, but a three-point is a must for Chelsea to kick-start their campaign.
Here’s how we are expected lo line-up today:
GK – THIBAUT COURTOIS
Although, Begovic was excellent last game, Mourinho made it clear that it would be the Belgian who will make his comeback against the Baggies!
CB – KURT ZOUMA AND GARY CAHILL
A fast CB to counter the speed of Saido Berahino makes Zouma favorite over John Terry to start the game. Gary Cahill will retain his place.
FULLBACKS – CESAR AZPILICUETA AND BRANISLAV IVANOVIC
Although, Baba Rahman could very well start tomorrow, but Mourinho is expected to start Ivanovic over the inexperienced Left Back in an away game.
CM – CESC FABREGAS AND NEMANJA MATIC
No Pogba yet, which means Fabregas starts alongside Matic again despite his recent bad form!
WINGERS – EDEN HAZARD AND PEDRO
Eden Hazard starts on the left and in the absence of Moses and Oscar, Pedro is expected to make his debut ahead of Cuadrado and Remy today!
CAM – WILLIAN
Oscar injury means Willian starts as a No.10! Hopefully, the Brazilian continues his recent good form.
STRIKER – DIEGO COSTA
Some fans are desperate to see Falcao ahead of the Spaniard today, but, I think Costa would be the better choice here.
