Maybe they could chuck us out and play the losing quarter-finalists in the semis instead - Porto v Liverpool

 

Oh wait...

I'm sure they can find it in their hearts to forgive them , I sure it was us leading them astray

Again, bit bizarre and probably a minority view, but I would have no issue with us getting kicked out.

The club look like they dont want to bea part of it anyway.

Oddly and worryingly feeling confident about our chances in this semi final, which as a Chelsea fan, is not usually a good sign.

I initially thought let’s go for as much experience as possible, but then I thought about it more and realised that actually, let’s just play our strongest team. Our strongest team, coached and setup by Tuchel can take any team on and we should have the confidence in ourselves to do that. 
 

I imagine the first leg, we will try to control the game from a defensive point of view, try to keep a CS and grab an away goal (or 2) on the counter, therefore the pace of Werner and Pulisic could be key.

I would play:

Mendy

Azpi - Silva - Rudiger

James - Jorginho- Kante - Chilwell

Mount - Werner - Pulisic

*I expect Ziyech to play though, I think Tuchel trusts him more in the big games.

I think AC may play instead of Silva as I am not sure TT will play Silva back to back. Upfront it tought, I think it will be three from: Mount, Harvetz, Puli, Ziyech, Werner. 

Wouldn't surprise me if he plays Puli as the False 9 in this one.

To be honest, Christensen in for Silva would be ok, but these games do seem made for Silva in my opinion. Big European nights against big opposition and experienced, crafty players, Silva will relish this.

Upfront is tough, I agree, I think it’s definitely Mount plus 2 others and I’d personally go for the pace of Werner and Pulisic, but as mentioned I think TT may opt for Ziyech and wouldn’t be shocked if Havertz was the false 9.

I can’t wait for this game, so excited to be watching us in a CL semi final again! Come on Chelsea!!!
