ExWHUemployee’s team for Chelsea

EXWHUThe debate about Slav’s team for the Chelsea game has been rumbling around all week.

James Collins or Angelo Ogbonna at the back in Winston Reid’s absence?

Enner Valencia, Mauro Zarate or Michail Antonio on the left of midfield with Victor Moses unable to play under the terms of his loan deal from Chelsea?

Valencia_3191610Tricky dilemmas for the manager who will need to get it right against a Chelsea team dangerous given the slump which has taken the football world by surprise this season.

Who’d be a manager for a game like this when the match result could hang on hairline decisions – these are the choices on which top four and top six decisions hang.

So we have turned to our expert insider ExWHUemployee for his choice of team and Ex says: “I would stick with the same defence as Palace and bring in Valencia to replace Moses! Jose rates him let him prove his worth.”

That would mean we line up like this: Adrian, Jenkinson, Tomkins, Collins, Cresswell; Noble, Kouyate, Payet, Lanzini, Valencia, Sakho

  1. I agree with that team, but Enner must be monitored for fatiguee as he hasn’t played for a long time. We can bring on Antonio or Zarate later in the game.

  2. Personally, bring in Ogbanna to partner Collins, move Tomkins to RB, drop Jenkinson who will be terribly exposed by Chelsea wingers and start Valencia.
