Chelsea Predicted Line-up against Scunthorpe: Bamford to start

John Obi MikelChelsea new manager Guus Hiddink may have found the solution to Chelsea’s problems as he led the team to their first 3-0 win in recent times over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last weekend in their English Premier League encounter.

The Blues will now be preparing to build on this as they battle League One side Scunthorpe today in their FA cup match. Chelsea are odds on to win this match. With various casino sites putting Chelsea as the clear favorite. You check out a list of uk casinos.

However, the manager knows he has to rest some players and this means giving some new legs the chance to play especially in the striker position where he is lacking options at the moment due to some piling injuries to the squad.

This therefore should be his line-up for today:

Goalkeeper should be Asmir Begovic who seems to have lost his starting place since the return of first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois but for a match like this, there is no reason why Begovic should not start to give Courtois some rest as the Bosnian star is also a good goalkeeper and will be hoping to keep a clean sheet for the match.

Defence should have Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma in the centre back positions as ageing John Terry need some major rest even if he is still the best they have.

Abdul Baba Rahman should be started in the left-back position while young Ola Aina should be featured in the right-back position as Branislav Ivanovic and Cesar Azpilicueta need to be rested for the week ahead after such constant outings and given that the duo of Ola Aina and Baba Rahman are not so bad as defenders and need to be given a chance to play.

Midfield should consist of Nemanja Matic who has been dropped in recent times due to an acute lack of form and hopefully he will do better than he has been in recent times and he should be paired with youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek who also needs some playing time under his belt as John Obi Mikel and Cesc Fabregas both need to be rested for the more tasking matches especially as they seem to have both picked up their forms and are doing well at the moment.
