Predicted Chelsea Line-up To Play Against Tottenham Hotspur – Azpi & Hazard To Be Rested


Defensive Midfield: Nemanja Matic

He has played every game for Chelsea till now and he is one player who would again be expected to start against Spurs as well. He has a powerful engine and excellent game-reading ability.

Defensive Midfield: Ramires

The Chelsea runner is bound to start the game instead of Oscar as the squad needs to be freshened up. He would give Fabregas the cover that he would require in the defense.

Central Attacking Midfield: Cesc Fabregas

The Chelsea playmaker would be playing as the chief creator behind the striker as the team is expected to line-up in a traditional 4-2-3-1 formation. In a bid to lessen the burden on his shoulders, Ramires would help him in his defensive duties.

Right Midfield: Willian

Willian has been in good form and is the most energetic of the Chelsea attacking midfielders. He would retain his place in the attacking midfield and hope to cause damage against a team that were very interested in buying him in the summer of 2013.

Left Midfield: Andre Schurrle

The German winger is expected to start ahead of Eden Hazard as the Belgian requires some rest as he has played too many games on the trot. An average and tired performance against Sunderland must have alerted Mourinho about the need to replace Hazard.


Striker: Loic Remy

Chelsea is likely to play without their key creative players in Oscar and Hazard, so it is likely that Mourinho would provide Fabregas with Remy who has the pace to make several runs in behind the defence.
