Liverpool visit to Stamford Bridge tomorrow have been regarded by many as the final test of Jose Mourinho’s tactical ability to lead the EPL defending champions Chelsea in this season campaign.
We expect nothing but a win from Mourinho’s men, if the Portuguese tactician is to remain at his job. It is reported that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is beginning to lose fate in Mourinho’s ability after a woeful start to the season challenge.
Chelsea are currently sitting on 15th position on the Premier League table with just 11 points out of a possible 30 points. With 11 points behind league leader Manchester City, Mourinho must get the Blues back to winning ways, if they are to remain a team to reckon with in the title challenge.
Spain international hit man Diego Costa is expected to return to starting line-up after sustaining a minor rib injury in the Capital One Cup defeat to Stoke City. However, tough tackling defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic will be expected to replace Nigerian international John Mikel Obi in the defensive role after serving his one match ban.
Spanish duo in Cesc Fabregas and Cesar Azpilicueta will also be expected in the starting line-up against the Reds after missing midweek game against the Potters.
This is our predicted line-up for the Blues against the Jurgen Klopp’s men with Loic Remy and Costa leading the Attacking line in a 4-4-2 formation.
