This is my version of what could be Chelsea’s probable line-up against Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final tonight. (19/05/2012)
With 4 important players suspended, we will have to risk Torres out of position on the right wing, to replace the absent Ramires. Drogba should remain as the main striker, because he seems to perform well against the big teams and he could cause Bayern Munich’s defence mayhem.
Bosingwa and Cole can push forward to give support to Torres and Mata to give good deliveries to Drogba. Torres can move to Central position when needed.
If we managed to lead by 2 goals up, we shouldn’t go for more goals, and could play more defensively by replacing Kalou with someone like Essien or Romeu where he would swap positions with Lampard, and Lampard can push further up at this time since we have two CDM players.
Todd Kane andChalobah will be on the bench as a backup, incase Luiz or Cahill gets injured during the match. I think Di Matteo won’t bring them on unless he really need to because these two players have not played with the Senior team and it would be tough to be put into the deep end playing in the Final of the Champions League.
I just want to take this opportunity to wish Chelsea all the best and I really hope they can beat Munich.
