Cech

Ivanovic

Terry

Cahill

Luis

Fabregas

Matic

Hazard

Willian

Schurrle

Costa

Courtois. Azpillicueta. Oscar. Salah. Torres. Zuma. Mikel

Really would be nice to lay down a marker in this game, a struggled win would do but anything other than a victory would see all those questions about struggling against lower teams coming to the surface again.

Still, I'll go 3:0 with Costa scoring on his debut and Fabregas and Matic running the midfield. If it all goes right, it has the makings of a 6 or 7 goal win.

another spin on the Cech v Courtois scenario is the report in yesterdays Evening Standard that Courtois is reluctant to sign a new deal.

The worst of all outcomes, we sell Cech, then in 12 months time. Courtois is in his last year of his contract........all of sudden instead of 2 top keepers, we have none.

I doubt we'll sell Cech before Courtois has signed. Atleast, I wouldn't do that.

Hmm. First game at Turf Moor against newly promoted Burnley? I'll take a 0-1.

The story from the Standard says he's waiting to see if he's No.1 before signing.

So, if the story is true, your doomsday scenario is impossible.

Anyway;

Courtois

Ivanovic - Cahill - Terry -Luis

Fabregas - Matic

Schurrle - Oscar - Hazard

Costa

The bolded ones I'm a bit unsure about.

Azpilicueta might start on the left if we want to ease Luis in. Cech might start in front of Courtois as he's only had a game and a half in pre-season. Willian might start instead of Oscar, with Schurrle playing off the striker.

FFS mate...first game of the season. We always seem to be on top of things in game 1 home or away. If I were a neutral I'd be fearing for Burnley, I really would.

That is all well and good but time frames are a bit tight, no?

Is it that straight forward? Will starting at Burnley be enough proof for him to sign a new deal?

Where is Torres the blue with his score predictions? I get really depressed with these sensible "bite your arm off for 1-0" comments. Hrmpf.
