Obviously Olsen in goal would put a slightly different spin on things.
I canít see Unai doing that considering Olsen will have a very long tiring flight from Stockholm and will be jet lagged due to massive time difference. No, I think he will stick to Emi as he will be fresh as a daisy after that take off and land little breezer from Buenos Aires.

Martinez could return from a ten year space mission, re-entering the atmosphere and parachuting straight into the stadium, and he'd still be a better option than Olsen.

Realistically we are probably looking at

----------Martinez
Young, Konsa, Mings, Moreno
-----------Luiz, Donk
McGinn, Buendia, Ramsey
-----------Watkins

Can't afford to carry Bailey from the start for this one. Also hope rumours of Konsa possibly shifting to right back are just rumours. He is atrocious when he plays there. Assuming Kamara and Coutinho are still out then our options are very limited. McGinn has a lot of football played in the past week so can't imagine he has 90 mins in him.

I think given how we've been setting up with Moreno in the team having Chambers or Konsa at right back might not be the worst decision. Whether it's been Young or Cash they've played noticeably deeper than Moreno and tucked in a fair bit so someone there as primarily a defensive player isn't a terrible idea.

I don't think he'll do it and I'd prefer to start with Young but if he does go that way I can understand the logic.

Maybe he'll switch Digne to Right Back...

True but I don't see Buendia sticking as high and right as Bailey does. That 442 is somewhat fluid anyway with or without the ball. Buendia did drop in well, can't remember if it was Wolves or Leeds in the second half to make us a midfield three at times. I think he can do that again at Chelsea for us but has to avoid losing the ball in dangerous areas.

Before I enlarged it I thought it might be a Villa-Penarol scarf but I think I'll give it a miss now.

And they've omitted the star. The detail overall is something quite special, The Chelsea Lion looks like a dog smoking a pipe.

That's unlike you BV because normally you are drenched in half half regalia ;D
Axl you're correct it's fucking awful, problem is that I can see lot of boys and girls in far east buying that shit.
