Chelsea FC: Picking the Starting XI to Defeat Benfica

Boring, lacklustre Chelsea. After enjoying a good run of form, the highlight being their emphatic victory over Napoli in the second-leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League, Chelsea have started to, yet again, resemble the Chelsea of mid-season.

It’s a pity that Tottenham did not walk away with all three points, as they really deserved it. Chelsea played with very little hunger and showed no desire to win.

However, they cannot afford to do the same with Benfica. Chelsea still have an opportunity to have a remarkable season if they achieve the improbable.

Here’s picking a starting XI to defeat Benfica in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League and take them a step closer towards Champions League glory.
