Chelsea, 14-04-19, PL (H)

In my opinion this is the game where we could lose the title as i feel we'll win all the other games, of course even if we do beat the chavs it may not be enough but fingers crossed.

We'll have Robbo back so he obviously will start alongside VVD, Matip and Arnold, Alisson between the sticks, well, it would hardly be Migs, hahaha.

As usual it's the midfield that is hard to predict but right now i think our best and inform midfielders are Hendo, Fbinho and Keita so that's my pick here, usual 3 upfront.

                                                                     Alisson

                                                   Arnold      Matip    VVD   Robbo

                                                       Hendo   Fabinho   Keita

                                                      Salah     Firminho  Mane

All our remaining games are must win but like i said i feel we'll win the others but this one could be our bannana skin even though i do think we'll beat them, just. Best of luck RedMen.

      • Hazard came on after 59 minutes against Sparta Prague. Kante came on after 68. Although those two will be slightly rested it must be draining for Chelsea to play Monday, Thursday, Sunday so hopefully they will not be at their best physically. Hazard is the danger so there may be a case for playing Milner in front of Trent to provide cover. I read Wijnaldum has a slight back issue which may mean he stays on the bench.
        • I must do a bit more homework before i post about players, hahaha!!!!!!!
        • Yes, playing Milner ahead of Trent would be a sensible decision in the circumstances. A back injury to Wijnaldum would explain his recent drop in form.
      • I wasn't too sure where Gomez is currently at with regards to starting so I didn't include him. It's a bit of harsh fixture to have for your first game back so I figured he'd most likely be on the bench. When it comes to the midfield Klopp could possibly go two ways - he could either be more offensive and try and keep the play in Chelsea's half, in which case he's more likely to pick Keita, or he could be more defensive and try and interupt the balls going to Hazard in our half, in which case he's more likely to pick Wijnaldum or Milner. In the press conference Klopp said he was going to play on the front foot so he may well choose Keita, however, given the gravity of this fixture I'm not sure he can risk leaving the back door ajar so the less risky option would be to play two of Henderson, Wijnaldum or Milner because they all can play either offensively or defensively depending on the what the situation requires. I think our biggest danger is Hazard being given the ball halfway into our half so I personally would want the midfielders on the pitch who are most capable of stopping that happening. While I think Keita has improved greatly going forward I'm not sure he's quite as good as the other players in a defensive capacity.

"How could i forget Lallana, Shaqiri at the moment is seeing more of the physio"s bench than the subs bench, feel sorry for him as he's done very well when he's played."

"That could well be the starting 11 but as far as I know Shaquiri is not fit enough to feature yet"

"You could have Williams at right back, Larouci at left back, Jones in midfield and Elliott and Shaqiri as wide forwards. That would leave Hoever, Lallana, van den Berg, Chirivella and a selection of first teamers to come off the bench."

"This may sound daft but I'm not sure Salah always 'sees' his teammates. When he's got the ball at his feet in the box he's so hyperfocused on getting into a position to shoot I think he gets tunnel vision to a degree. That doesn't excuse not passing…"

The games keep coming, thankfully. We wouldn't want to break our stride now would we, haha. I'm a bit more interested in us doing well in this comp than the Lge cup but still won't be too upset if we go out, as iv'e said before it's all about winnin…

"That was close, well both games home and away. That was a rare goal from a set piece by Henderson plus an important one too. Wolves should be sitting inside the top four at this point of the season since they are a good team. Losing Mane was a disas…"

"Thankfully those two games are done and 6 points in the bag, bloody hard fought 6 points i might add. Fairplay to Wolves, their a really good team, surely a big club will come in for Traore, For a big guy he's really quick, if he can sort out his cr…"

We seem to have had a few Thursday games recently.  At least it has given us a 4 day break after the United game.  This could be one of the most difficult of our remaining fixtures.  Wolves are a strong, well organised team with a system that they a…
