If no one else is going to post this one then here goes. An end of season match between 8th and 9th teams isn’t usually the greatest of prospects but this is Liverpool v Chelsea and there is always something at stake when we meet them. I would expect our team to be pretty much the one that will start against Sevilla, injuries permitting. Much as it would be nice to wrap the players in cotton wool I think they need a game in order to be at top level next week. All 11 can have a rest against West Brom. So my team would be the one that started against Villareal last Thursday.
What a shame we will not have the pleasure of sending John Terry off with our best wishes as he comes to the end of his Chelsea career, though it is entirely appropriate that he ends it suspended. Chelsea have played their youngsters in a couple of recent games but against Spurs and Sunderland they brought back their experienced players and I would expect the same for tonight.
I will miss this one but I am expecting to log on tomorrow and find that we have won the game. I will be even happier if I read that we have picked up no more injuries.
