With the new season almost upon us, it’d be churlish not to bring back an old favourite when it comes to our focus on a forthcoming match.

For Chelsea, the 2019 / 2020 season, kicks off with a difficult looking trip, to Old Trafford, to take on Manchester United.

It’s fair to say, as far as opening day games go, the fixture computer could have been kinder to Chelsea, but, hey, bring it on.

Chelsea, under the tutorship of a new managerial regime, headed up by Frank Lampard, will be looking to get off to a good start but, for this opening day fixture, who will make the starting XI?

With Eden Hazard no longer with us, an opportunity exists for someone, quite possibly Christian Pulisic, to become the creative heartbeat of our side.

There are also questions as to who Frank will turn to when it comes to the heart of his defence and also in the midfield, will Kurt Zouma and Mason Mount get the nod?

As usual, we’re asking you to second-guess the thoughts of our boss and predict the starting eleven.

Simply drop your predicted starting eleven into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see if anyone gets it spot on.

Also, feel free to drop a predicted score-line into the comment facility as well.
