I can see this being tough.. this will test our defensive strength and no mistake. If we get a draw I will be happy but can see a loss for us in this..

Atletico will win it. As the season progresses, Chelsea's lack of depth will be exposed. congratulations to kante for finally having his first meaningful european game. im sure he will score. xD

Who was that Chelsea supporter ( and I use the term loosely ) that used to get on here and keep winding Deadlinesman up all the time?? 

Can't remember his name?

Tempted to save Cesc for City as I feel Kante+Bakayoko should handle Gabi + Koke fairly well. 

Both teams are in great form and it's going to be a very tactical battle. I fear for the stewards that pisses either Simeone or Conte off xD

 

Morata

Hazard--------Pedro

Alonso-----Bakayoko----Kante----Moses

Rudiger--------Luiz-----Azpilicueta

Courtois

Chelsea lacks depth and this is kante's first european competition :what: no lies, just being honest Bluewolf. 

You're mistaking honesty with stupidity as your reasoning continues to back fire. 

Just last week you said we'd struggle without Costa. Since then,  Batshuayi hattrick on Wednesday and Morata hattrick yesterday. 

Reality certainly isn't in your favor.

Think we'll just wait and see if they get out of the group stages first before worrying about who knocks them out much later on.

Our group might decide on Goal differential to be honest. 

Qarabag are going to be the group's whipping boys.

Can't see many goals at all in the Atletico-Chelsea game, be very tight I reckon.

Roma will win the other game.

I think so as well. 1-0 Atletico probably.

Game at the weekend is more important for me. League is always first. I'd still lineup Bakayoko+Kante and save Cesc for City.

Kante and Baka have to play both game, Cesc can't handle either.

That's more or less what we play.  Cesc plays further than Bakante. Morata up top with a supporting striker who has more freedom.

I like Hazard more behind the strikers than on the wing where he usually goes. 

perhaps 3-4-2-1, with the two being attacking midfielders not wingers.

Saul (22) has way more experience and even more talent than kante, who is only playing his second European game xD

Playing in that position goals aren’t exactly what an analysis of such a player is there to be looked at. Saúl isn’t a natural holding midfielder but he can play there. He is more diverse than Kanté but then again the French player is extremely important for any side. Kanté would be better compared with Gabi in the Atleti side.
