This is My Chelsea XI vs Wigan
Like you all can see, I predict that we will see Hazard and Oscar in our starting XI. I read earlier comments from Di Matteo and my conclusion is that he wants to rest Mata and we need another playmaker in field. I believe that Oscar will have his first chance today to show what he can do.
My Chelsea starting XI 4-2-3-1: Cech; Cole,Luiz,Terry,Ivanovic; Hazard,Essien,Oscar,Lampard,Sturridge; Torres
I want to see quick passing, fast attacking Chelsea today. I believe that with Hazard, Oscar and Sturridge our play will get faster. When Sturridge and Hazard plays wide that leaves more space to Torres. Sturridge and Hazard are both quick and very dangerous, they will twist more than one defender when attacking.
In deeper midfield I want to see Essien, he is more technical than Mikel and he can shoot. Mikel is a great defensive mid but when we need higher tempo in our play I see Essien as a better option.
This is how I want to see Chelsea today. Wigan will be tough one, but I believe that we are ready. In community shield against ManC, I think we played really well and before Ivanovic red card we were giving last years champions a hard time. Torres and Lampard looked fresh and their movement and passing was good. Its something what we were missing at the start of the last season. Today we need a good start to our season and I hope we see a good balanced display from our new and old lads. Di Matteo has alot of work to do and it all starts today.
