 Morata, Baka, Drinkwater and Hazard need time on the pitch. Pedro, Azpi and Moses need some rest.

So.

Courtois

Zappa - Cahill - Christensen - Rudiger - Alonso

Drinkwater - Cesc - Baka

Morata - Hazard

 

Sub - Bats for Morata

Moses for Alonso

Willian for Hazard

Agreed.  He's our best player and to get off to the best start possible in this group is key.  Plenty of attacking options would be ideal.

I reckon he will play an hour. 

As long as we win, I am not too worried about the score. The positions in the group are head to head, so goal difference means next to nothing (assuming we won't be head to head with Qarabag)

Good chance to rotate the squad a bit, but not too much as we need to retain fluidity, make sure we win well, and still have another 5 days until the Arsenal game.

Keeping that in mind:

Courtois; Rudiger, Christensen, Cahill; Zappa, Kante, Cesc, Alonso; Willian, Michy, Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Azpi, Kenedy, Drinkwater, Musonda, Pedro, Morata

 

Complete rest for the likes of Moses, Bakayoko and Luiz.

I wonder if he wants to get some more minutes for Bakayoko?

Curious to see the team selection as on paper it should be a straight forward game, but certainly not a game we will want to drop points in.
