Subs: Ross Turnbull (GK), Branislav Ivanovic, David Luiz, Oriol Romeu, Victor Moses, Daniel Sturridge, Marko Marin
The substitutes bench under Roberto di Matteo is a mix of veterans and youth.
Turnbull is solid backup option if Cech were to go down injured at goalkeeper.
In defense, Ivanovic can play any at any position in the defense and Luiz could be used for the less important matches, like the Capital One Cup and FA Cup.
Romeu is still developing and will eventually be the long-term replacement for Mikel in the defensive midfield.
The attacking trio on the bench will be decided by which forward gets sold to help fund the Falcao move.
Fernando Torres could be the odd man out as reports linking him back to Atletico Madrid in exchange for Falcao are beginning to come out in the press.
That would leave Marin, Moses and Sturridge to come off the bench which is not a bad trio to have but it is clear that they are not on the level as the attackers that will be in the starting 11.
Who do you think should be in the starting 11 at Chelsea with Falcao?
