Call me crazy, but I'm little excited for this match, because for the first time we will watch a completely different team on the pitch.

we SHOULD. but we played with an almost first team in the last round of CL group games last season and that was a dead rubber.

I hope such thing won't happen here, and since Jose made some changes in midweek UCL game, I believe he will do the same here.

I`d play Blackmon, we are fucked if Begovic takes a knock that puts him out for a few months.rather not risk that in such a game. and Blackmon needs some gametime to sharpen him up incase he needs to come on with goalkeepers getting sent off so easily now compared to how they almost never did.












11 Kenedy.

should be enough to see us through.for me progress in this cup is more important to let fringe players get time than for any cup glory.even tho I like us to win as much as possible including Milk Cups.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek's day. He has to be our main midfielder on Wednesday taking Matic's role in our midfield. RLC is indisputable for Wednesday (and I hope for the rest of the season).

Ramires is our best option to be near RLC because Obi Mikel is too Obi Mikel. Ramires is perfect to help with defensive aspects and to reach the opponent's box.

Oscar has to play as N.10 assuming all our creative capacity to generate football on the offensive end from the midfield.
RLC and Oscar are the ones who should get the ball from behind on Wednesday. The movement of the ball will pass / depend on them.

In attack I'd bet on Remy - Falcao - Kenedy because Remy always has good performance, Falcao need minutes to find himself again and Kenedy wants to conquer the world. Although Traore could have some minutes. They are players who will fight every play as if it were the last to find their place in our starting eleven regularly.

About our defense, I think Azpilicueta needs to rest because he is playing every minute since the season began. Baba should start as left-back, with Ivanovic as right-back (Aina is too young to Jose, and Ivanovic should not play on Saturday against Newcastle), with Zouma (indisputable) and John Terry (Captain, Leader, Legend) as Centre-backs.

And Begovic also should start.

I know that the League Cup is a minor trophy, but at the end of the season if we win one or two finals at Wembley stadium the feelings will be very different. And winning a trophy at the end of February (28 February) would give us a lot of tranquility to face the end of the season with less anxiety.
