      As much as we would like Keita to play, think Gini will take his spot, Robbo back for Milly and Matip for Lovren. Hendo will be tasked to help out Trent and restrict Hazard's movement. Thats what West Ham did for the first 20 mins, then he moved centrally and manufactured that goal. Hope Fab will be ready for such plays.

      Mane-Bobby-Mo
      Gini-Fab-Hendo
      Robbo-Virgil-Matip-Trent
      Alisson

      Subs: Migs, Gomez, Lovren, Milner, Keita, Shaq, Origi

      prefer Lovren as cover than Matip

      Virtually their strongest team isn’t? Aside from Hazard and Kante, not sure who else is missing of any note.

      Yeah I’d put Giroud comfortably ahead of him to be honest. From what I’ve seen of Higuain so far he’s been sh*te, like the useless waste of money he replaced.

      Gini and Hendo in midfield and my only question is Milner or a resurgent Keita, but I'm guessing Jürgen will go with Milner.

      I understand some Chelsea fans were kept from attending the Europa League match in Prague tonight because they were singing racist songs about Mo Salah earlier in the day. Classy lot.

      I would start the same midfield as the last game.

      I wonder if Gomez is fit enough to start and maybe he could start at RB to better defend against Hazard? Hes faster and stronger than AA, and Matip can play at centre back with VVD.

      Chelsea fans in trouble for the following
      Three Chelsea supporters were barred entry into the club’s Europa League tie here after they were identified by security staff as having engaged in a chant describing the Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, as a “bomber”.
      I am just about sick and tired of lowlife pieces of scum sharing this planet with decent people . I cant imagine a more quiet, peace loving decent human being than our Mo we simply cant allow this to continue any longer these people are sub human and deserve to be treated as such they do not deserve to share the same air as the rest of us.

      Beat Chelsea anyway we can to get the 3 points.Even if it takes a goal like Garcia scored against them a few years ago that will suffice.We are nearly there REDS so just go out  for number 19.

      Chelsea bar three people over Mohamed Salah video

      Chelsea prevented three people from entering the stadium for Thursday's Europa League quarter-final at Slavia Prague after a video appeared to show them singing an abusive song about Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

      The group were apparently chanting "Salah is a bomber" repeatedly.

      Liverpool said the video shows "vile discriminatory chants" and is "dangerous and disturbing".

      Three of the six people in the video were identified and barred.

      Chelsea are working to identify the other three, who did not turn up.

      The Stamford Bridge club, who are working with police and Liverpool, said the people concerned were an "embarrassment".

      Nice to see Chelsea acted and refused them entry.  Hope they identify the other 3 and ban all 6 for life from their games.  F***ing idiots....

      Looks a bit safety first and we have to take the bull by the horns.was a controlled professional performance V Porto but a shade more urgency is required V The Polymerics.

      All nine players should form a circle with Salah in the middle and run as one towards the Chelsea end..and then part like a wave for Mo to boot it in..that's the plan.

      Mate, if there was anything we lacked in the Porto game, it was control. We had two #8s pushing up, resulting in a more open game than usual. Kante & Jorginho are definites to play 90 mins and we all know Sarri's usual subs. Lets see how we shape ourselves for that.

      We got away with being indisciplined compared to our normal performances because Porto are not that strong.
      It wouldn't surprise me to see Henderson back to a more defensive role on Sunday.

      Fair do’s to Chelski for acting so swiftly re the racist incident.

      I know there is racists in all fan base they are just a reflection of society but for some reason clubs like Chelsea, Milwall and Hammers do seem to have a greater following.

      I'm torn between this and the one you quoted. Matip is a coward who shys away from any aggression, Lovren's prone to his head going and lunging in like an idiot. Neither choice fills me with confidence when we're talking about an inform Hazard. Digressing slightly, since Gomez has now been injured three times in three seasons (is it?)  I think we need another belter at CB to partner big Virge. Anyway the rest of the team is what I would expect, although I wouldn't be surprised to see Milner shoehorned in somewhere. Boss seems to like him.

      F**k me Matip is a coward wow what a line.....he's been one of our best players since he got back in playing regularly,  you must be watching a different game to me.

      That Dutch kid De Ligt from Ajax seems like a match made in heaven.  Supposedly Barca bound, but I'm sure we could make him an offer to at least catch his attention.

      Coward might be far too strong but he really did struggle against Shane Long of all people. For a big lad he won a pathetic amount of the long balls played into the striker. He's a decent defender but he gets out muscled and out paced far too often.

      That said I think maybe watching VvD for over a year has raised the bar for all of us when judging our centre backs!

      If you read the post you would realise that the point he was making was that Gomez is to injury prone and he might have a point.
