This Saturday, in the lunch-time kick-off, Chelsea return to Premier League action with a home Premier League fixture against Manchester United.
After the completion of the international break, the fixture sees a beleaguered Jose Mourinho stride back to a familiar stomping ground.
Although I’ll always be eternally grateful for what Jose did for our football club, I’m probably not alone in expressing disappointment at how his managerial career appears to have turned him into a figure of narcissism.
In fact, I have to express disappointment at the fact his side came back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle United, a defeat in that game would surely have seen Jose bring his pampered squad to Stamford Bridge with the self-annointed ‘Special One’ facing the axe if the Blues were to beat him.
But, before I travel too far down this bitter and twisted road I appear to be on, I’ll take a left turn and get back to the crux of this article.
As is always the case, here at Vital Chelsea, we’re asking you to second guess the starting eleven that Maurizio Sarri will select.
With several of his normal starting eleven having been away on international duty, could we see a few changes or, are there a few in the squad that may be troubled by niggling injuries after the latest round of international matches.
To participate, simply drop the names of the eleven players you believe will start into the comments facility beneath this article.
Up the Chels!
