A dilemma faces Maurizio Sarri this weekend.

After the debacle of Wednesday night, when another lacklustre performance saw Chelsea slip to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat away to Bournemouth, a defeat that saw the Italian carry out a behind-doors inquest in the away dressing room at the Vitality Stadium, which way does the manager now turn?

Does he stick with those who disappointed on that cold night down on the south coast or does he make wholesale changes and try, once again, to reinvigorate a side that seems to drift along as it pleases?

It’s a tough choice for the boss who we feel is starting to look to be a little out of his depth.

Now, normally, we’d ask you to second-guess the starting eleven that Sarri would predict, but there’s, as the article title suggests, a subtle change this time around.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re asking to provide the starting eleven that YOU would opt for this weekend.

Would you shake the starting eleven up?

Or would you just make the odd change?

Please feel free to drop YOUR starting eleven in the comment facility beneath this article, hopefully, they’ll make for interesting reading.

  • Let it be as follows Kepa,Azpi,Luiz,Rudiger,Kante,Cheek,Kovacic,Hazard,Higuain and Hudson.subs willian,giroud,barkley are people to go in Deng Mawut from South Sudan.

  • Kepa Zappacosta Christensen rudiger emerson Kante Loftus-Cheek cheek Barkley Willian hazard giroud. Subs Cahill Pedro Hudson-Odoi willy Alonso . This is my team as Higuain is injured.

  • Because Sarri will not change the system and because he will not drop Jorginho I’ll prefer a solid defence as a starting pint.





    But Sarri will probably pick the usual starting eleven, unfortunately

  • My preferred line up would be
    Zappa, Christensen Luiz, Emerson
    Drink water , Kante
    Cho, Hazard, Willian
    I believe Rudi deserves a rest and starting Drinky with kante in the middle will offer us more protection against counters from Hudderfield. Let’s face it, we won’t really be needing Jorginho in this game to dictate play cos Huddersfield ain’t gonna be preventing anyone from doing so even Sarri himself. Drinky also offers the ability for long range Accurate shots and he is no slouch on along passes either. Giroud must start this games and all other games against lower teams that will look to shut the door and seat deep cause we can look to play the long balls for hold up play or go out wide and pull in the crosses. Emerson and Zappa must be instructed that except another player is in a better scoring position or Giroud is not in place, they must whip in the crosses all day long. Mixing the whole attacking process up will make us unpredictable and more direct. We would have scoring options from crosses, wingers cutting in, even those occasional belters from either drinky or Zappa. Once we are ahead comfortably, Huguian can be introduced cos huddersfield looking to get something from the game will open up spaces for which Huguain can profit. With Huguian on the pitch, the attackers must be directed to look for first time spaces where he would run into rather than look to dribble or hold up play
