This Sunday, Chelsea FC will play their first game since their epic victory over Napoli in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge. The Blues will play hosts again in another cup competition, the FA Cup in the quarterfinals against Leicester City.
Roberto Di Matteo has finally gotten this squad to play up to the level we have all come to expect. The young crop of new faces are fitting in well with the veterans who have found their second wind.
While Leicester City does not pose the kind of threat the Italians did in talent, it is the kind of match that presents itself as the ideal upset scenario.
With a pivotal league game this Wednesday, Di Matteo will have to be creative in his picks so as not to have the players too tired for that match.
Here are my predictions for the starting lineup.
