Twitter reacts to Chelsea gaffer’s surprising decision

When the team line-ups drop into the ‘Twittersphere’ it signals that tonight’s football proceedings can begin; the tweets begin, the opinions fly and the clock ticks down to kick-off.

The big talking point prior to Chelsea’s clash with Stoke City was the fact that Jose Mourinho has opted for two defensive-midfielders in John Obi Mikel and Nemanja Matic, presumably to combat Mark Hughes’ side’s physical approach to games.

Will the former Porto man’s decision to drop the creative Oscar for the more combative approach of Mikel prove costly or a shrewd move? Well, we all know Jose usually comes up smelling of roses but, with that being said, Twitter wasn’t too sure on the Chelsea’ manager’s decision.
