This will be a tight game, much like the Watford game, but they will come and attack from the off as they have nothing to lose. I expect it to be 0-0 in the first half, for them to tire in the second and us to take it 2-0 overall. No frills, no spills. Minimal effort, grind out the win.

Expecting some kids involved. But our backup didn't have much playing time recently, so I think most it will be their time now.

Salah, Schurrle, Zouma, Azpi, Cech, Ramires, Ake (I want to see him again), Remy and Drogba (one to start, one as sub)

Agreed, although I expect we might get a cheapy in the first half and maybe make it 3 by the end.

I want to see the Azpilicueta/Luis combination in this game, and I would like Ramires and Ake to be given opportunities as well.

Beyond that I couldn't care less, just win the game.

Cech

Azpilicueta Zouma Terry Luis

Matic Ake

Ramires Oscar* Schurrle

Remy

Subs: Courtois Ivanovic Cahill Mikel Loftus-Cheek Drogba Costa

*Would like Oscar to be subbed off as early as possible though, as soon as the result is reasonably safe - he has a big role to play at home to Liverpool next week.

Cech

Azpi Zouma Terry Ake (Terry to make up for the inexperience)

Mikel-Rami

Remy RLC Salah

Drogba

Of course, though, that team is never gonna happen because Jose hates change. Maybe RLC, and Ake in CM. Maybe. And even then, probably not at the same time.

Bench: Blackman, Ivanovic, Christensen, Fabregas, Oscar, Schurrle, Costa.

I do really think Blackman will be on the bench. More likely Cahill for Christensen, though.

I expect a very quiet match for us. Bradford City is a team of League One and they are in the sixth position of the League One (6. Bradford. 25 points).

I hope a team with no regular players in our starting eleven. Also we play in the Bridge and I trust that we can move the tie with players like Ramires, Drogba, Mikel, Remy or Schurre, and also to Cahill with Zouma our starting eleven. This type of matches is perfect to give rest to someone as important to us as John Terry. John Terry takes all season in our starting eleven and maybe this game can be perfect for John Terry has a perfect physical rest.

Azpilicueta is also probably already recovered and he will play this game and Ivanovic will be as a backup for both center-back and left-back.

Also I hope to see some young player (hopefully will be Ruben Loftus-Cheek) (also Nathan Ake) perhaps just a few minutes if we have a good result during the match.

It would not be an starting eleven lackluster or with which we showed contempt for the FA CUP, it is a very competitive starting eleven.

Maybe this will be the starting eleven that will put Jose.

Cech

Azpilicueta - Zouma - Cahill - Filipe Luis

Ramires - Mikel

Schurrle - Oscar - Remy

Drogba

I expect a spectacular match of Zouma. Hopefully its performance on Saturday will allow Kurt Zouma be on Tuesday against Liverpool.

And this match is very important for us to win on Saturday to avoid forcing the replay and then we'd have a week of physical break between the match against Manchester City and the match against Aston Villa.

I leave a videos with the 3 last matches of Bradford City in case anyone wants to know more of this team.

1. EXTENDED: YEOVIL TOWN V BRADFORD CITY.

2. Bradford City vs Millwall 4-0 All Goals & Highlights FA Cup.

3. Bradford City 1-2 Rochdale: January 10th 2015.

Regards to all.

The next stop to The Quadruple.

24th January, Saturday, 2015. Chelsea v Bradford City. Match by Match.

For me, i'd play:

-----------------Cech-----------------

-Azpi--Cahill--Christensen--Ake-

----------Mikel---Ramires----------

-Salah-------Oscar------Schurrle-

----------------Drogba---------------

Subs: Blackman, Luis, Zouma, RLC, Willian, Remy, Solanke.

First team experience through the middle (Cech, Cahill, Oscar, Drogba) with all of the squad players getting a game.

EDIT: Removed Baker and Swift after being reminded that they're on loan duty. Thanks to OhForAGreavsie for bringing this to my attention.

First team experience through the middle (Cech, Cahill, Oscar, Drogba) with all but Remy (i'd have him coming off the bench against Liverpool on Tuesday) of the squad getting a game.

In the world of the imagination, the one where I can pick the team but don't actually have any responsibility for delivering the result, I could go even more off beat than that. Mind you I probably wouldn't try to pick Sheffield Wednesday or Swindon players! :)

How about this for a slightly, but not altogether, scatty line up: -

Cech or Courtois

Azpi1, Cahill, Zouma, Luis2

Fabregas3, Ake

Schurrle, Colkett4, Boga4

Remy

Subs: Cech or Courtois, Drogba, Hazard, Ivanovic, Loftus-Cheek, Matic & Oscar.

1 Needs a game.

2 Hasn't played much so there should be enough miles in his legs to handle three games in eight days.

3 Just had a sun and sand break so hopefully is recharged

4 Well I did say a little bit scatty plus they are surrounded by experience on the pitch and backed up by starters on the bench. :)

no channel for this match. again.

People are so bias when it comes to Chelsea being on TV. We can't be on every game. There are other teams and if you was a neutral fan would you give a fuck about this game? I struggle to give a fuck and I support them.

It'll be a boring game with Bradford defending for their life's, we will win 2-0 both goals in 2nd half.

I wasn't aware before that Baker and Swifty had been farmed out on loan. I'll edit my squad accordingly.

I think a lot of our players need a rest after being played full time recently especially with the prospect of a possible 120mins against Liverpool in midweek and a big game against Man City the following Saturday.

I noted a team with a strong core that is more than capable of picking up a result against Bradford, so the result really shouldn't be in question.
