And so the fun, if you have a dark sense of humour, continues.

With the fixtures coming at a breakneck speed this month, Chelsea make the trip to Sweden, for a Thursday night encounter with Malmo.

After the 6-0 drubbing inflicted by Manchester City, on Sunday, the pressure is on a beleaguered Maurizio Sarri to get a result, especially so with a very difficult FA Cup tie, against Manchester United to follow.

For Sarri, this Thursday night really is a test of his mettle.

The Italian’s insistence on sticking with the same faces and the same plan has fast unravelled but he steadfastly refuses to change his ways, perhaps feeling such a move would undermine his tried and trusted tactics and indicate a sign of weakness.

Of the fixtures Chelsea play this month, the two Europa League ties look to be the easiest, but then again the unpredictable nature of our side can make every game seem a hard one, take Bournemouth away for example.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re running our usual feature, but with a twist, ahead of the tie, we’re asking you to name the starting eleven YOU would opt for.

Would you make wholesale changes or just tinker a little?

Would you drop Jorginho and reinstate Kante as the heartbeat of the side in front of the back four?
Just two questions to consider as, somehow, we look towards our beloved Chelsea getting their season back on track.

Please feel free to drop the starting eleven YOU would opt for in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • Sarri just refuses to listen to what the world is crying out for.

    So It’ll be the same rubbish.

    Against my better judgement, it might as well be a team of his favourites;





    BUT, If I could choose it would be;






    • Out with Jorginho. he is only a ballmover and out wih Pedro and then in with Lotus-Cheek and Hudson-Adoy

  • Caballero, Emerson, Crishtensen, Zappacosta, Ethan Ampadu,ngolo Kante, Kovacic, Hudson odoi, Hazard, Higuain

  • Well no surprise here
    Azpil, Luiz, Christensen, Emerson

    Jorginho, Barck, Kova

    Pedro,Giroud, Willy

    Bye bye Hudson Odoi, Vinicius Junior can start for Real, but Cho is not good enough .

  • There we go! Jorginho again!!! This man just doesn’t listen! Anyway I wish can be beaten again so that he can just get fired for good!

  • Now that was a nice break …. good run from RossB, great pass from Willian & nifty finish from Giroud, 2-0

  • 2-1 it ends but a chance missed to give Calum Hudson Odoi a start … is Sarri the only one who cannot figure out he needs to play ?

  • We beat a team that had not played for 63 days 2-1, in a boring game . We should have thumped them 3/4-0 .

  • Now we see why Conte dropped Luiz, i hope this fraud is sacked by the end of this month, id take Guus back at this point .
