    Haven't done this for ages and usually get it very wrong ,but here goes. Assuming no injuries, which is tricky because Chelsea always seem to pull out a last minute injury.

    GK Petrocic
    RB Alfie Gusto OUT Injured
    CD Chalobah
    CD Silva
    RB Cucurella
    DM Casiedo
    DM Gallagher
    CM Palmer Chukwemeneke OUT Injured
    LW Madueke
    RW Mudryk
    CF Jackson

    A few shoncky players there but still better than the shonky ones who aren't !!

    Probably close, I would say.
    My god that is a **** team, though.
    Worst iteration of Chelsea since the early 90's that is for sure.
    Only difference is, Hitchcock, Spackman, Spencer and Sinclair didnt cost us a Billion quid!

    …….in my opinion, there’s not one player in that current Chelsea side that would displace a Chelsea first teamer from the period covering 2004-2020. That’s how far the club has regressed without Abramovich at the helm.

    Couple of late changes due to our usual late Injuries !!!!!!!!
    Well, Palmer is in now, so maybe that makes one !!!! Nevertheless your pretty spot on.

    We looked gone at half time but surprised me and probably many others ,with a really good second half. Madueke was excellent, Jackson played well with few chances, and the whole team worked hard. Only Mudryk and Palmer looked poor, Palmer was fit but obviously not well. Mudryk just can't get going and looks to be below standard.
    Poch's decision to play Badasheille alongside Silva was a surprise, but he went OK, that old tome of youth and experience again.
    Midfield with Gallagher and Caceido deeper and no Enzo showed that Enzo and Caceido just don't work together. That's 3 times in a row our midfield has looked much better without Enzo, and that Gallaghers' best position is deeper. Caceido looked like the player we thought we'd bought, for the 1st time. Poch has hopefully learned to STOP playing people out of position !!!! Bit stiff with VAR decisions, Jackson extremely close and a good finish for once, and cry though we did, it was a clear foul before the header. Another 2 points just slipped away, oh for a proper striker.
