Terry given 'official leave' for this game so we will see Alex and Carvalho at the back. The likes of Ferreira and Sturridge have a good chance of getting some game time as well.

I hope Carlo doesn't do anything stupid with the team line up and make too many changes. If Ashley Cole is fit then I want him to play. Likewise Drogba. However I would be looking to rest Frank and Anelka.

My team would be something like

......................................Cech.........................

Ferreira................Ivan.........Alex..............A Cole

......................................Mikel.........................

..................Deco (if fit).............Matic.............

Sturridge................................................Joe Cole

................................Drogba.............................

But it won't be that.

I hope Matic and Sturridge get starts in this one. Carlo would most likely field a very strong line up but giving a game to one or two youngsters should not be our undoing in games like these.

I hope the line up is:

.................Turnbull

Ferriera Alex Carvalho Zhirkov

...................Mikel

.......Deco..................Matic

Kalou.........Drogba.........Sturridge

But I expect it to be more like:

...................Cech

Ferriera....Alex....Carvalho....Ashley

...................Mikel

.......Deco..................Ballack

.................Joe Cole(if fit)

............Kalou.........Drogba

Chelsea player, Ashley Cole left the field yesterday in the second half, this is probably a violation of the cube.

Cole was forced to leave the pitch in the 57th minute of the game. This is probably the ankle fracture.

Assistant to Carlo Ancelotti said: "At first it looked ugly. It was not a foul, but still Cole suffered in this battle and we think that this is a violation of the cube."

"He's had ankle problems sooner, but today we can assess everything in Cobham.

I am at a loss too, with respect to what Mikstaw is trying to convey. Weird that he could not find the actual English quote, since I am assuming that Ancelloti made his quote in English, and not in Polish, and thus why the need for a Google translation?

Kalou will probably get a start in this one. But seen as Matic has been on the bench for a few games now, I expect to see at least 30 mins or so from him. I wouldn't mind seeing a Kalou/Drogba/Sturridge front 3 to see how it goes. Ivan and Alex to partner at the back, Zhirkov on the left, Ferreira on the right. Midfield of Mikel, Lampard and Joe Cole.

----------------------Hilario

---Ferreira----Ivan----------Alex-----Zhirkov

----------------------Mikel

-------------Lampard------Joey Cole

---Kalou-------------Drogba-----------Sturridge

I'd like to see a few of our senior players rested as they looked rather jaded last night.

So out would go Lampard, Anelka, Malouda and Cole.

Does anyone know when Bosingwa is likely to be back? I'd like to see him get an hour or so perhaps, assuming otherwise id have Belleti starting there and have Ferreira playing at left back. Id also like Matic play in place of Lampard, with Mikel, Zhirkov and then Deco behind the strikers (assuming we go for the diamond.) Then perhaps Sturridge and Kalou up front with Drog on the bench to come on just in case.

I have serious doubts as to whether this will be the line up as i dont see Lampard being left out, despite him suffering a big dip in form recently...

Could the "violation of the cube" mean he was tackled inside the box?

I think that we should try play in this formation.

Polish translation for injury is szkoda. One of the Polish synonyms of szkoda is naruszenie, which translates backs to English as...wait for it....violation.

Similarly cube translates to kostki in Polish which also means ankle. :)

So that just means injury of the ankle.
