Official team news is yet to come through but the two main questions must concern Danny Rose and Aaron Lennon. Danny was initially rated by AVB as 90% ready for Chelsea before dropping back to 50 / 50 ahead of West Ham but it was felt that Sunday’s clash at Villa was a more likely target.
Danny’s absence has exposed a lack of cover at left back so hopefully he will slot in.
Further up the park, could Andre look to play both Lennon and Townsend on opposite flanks? The odd man out in that instance is likely to be Gylfi Sigurdsson but that formation should surely provide more chances for the front man.
Who will that front man be? Andre switched Soldado with Defoe for the Hammers clash but will he go back to the Spaniard?
Here’s how we think it will line up but what’s your view?
