As one of our regulars notes, the Blues and Jose Mourinho have one of the best – and indeed most complete – squads in the Premier League after their business this transfer window and to pick a starting eleven is certainly among the more difficult tasks.
The competition for places is rife and we certainly are having trouble agreeing on just who should make the cut and who should wait their turn on the bench.
There are debates over the back four, the keeper, the wingers and the holding midfielders. There is not a question over who should lead the line however with the verdict being utterly unanimous. We also agree that the formation is a 4-3-3 – something Mourinho loves.
With that in mind, here is our best starting eleven for Chelsea this season.
