First time this season I'm thinking about the match after instead of the next one. I hope the players recover quickly because we know what Stoke can be like.

Matic-Luiz to give Stoke a taste of their own medicine.

Would like us to play this with one eye on Tuesday. Rest Terry and give Kalas a start, plonk Van Ginkel (fitness permitting) a start in the middle with Lampard, stick Matic behind them with Schurrle and Sala out wide and Ba up front.

Oh, and start Schwartzer for Cech.

That gives 6 days rest for Cech, Terry, Luiz, Willian, Hazard, Oscar, Eto'o. If Cole is fit I'd rest Azoilicueta too.

Think I might have a laugh with this and play Ba and Torres up top together, Salah and Schurrle out wide , Ramires and Matic centrally and Schwartzer in goal with Iva, Kalas, Terry , and Ash if available.

If nothing else it'd be interesting.

I don't think our back five need resting. I would play them with Matic and Luiz in the central midfield. The one player I would consider resting is Hazard.

I hope Eto'o is fit for next Tuesday. I would not risk him in the Stoke game.

I would play Ba up front against Stoke. Unless Torres shows something special in training over the next two days what is the point in even having him on the bench?

Ramires is serving the last of a three game suspension.

I hope Mourinho takes this game completely seriously. If we win well on Saturday it can only help player morale leading in to Tuesday and keep our outside chances of the Premier League title alive.

Before that 2nd leg against Napoli, we played and beat Stoke 1-0 at home...

Yes but we had Drogba then and now we don't have any comparable striker. If it's Torres at the Bridge I reckon we will be out of the competition. If Etoo is fit we may have a slim chance.
