Jose Mourinho is building another imperious line-up, with strong defensive foundations as he looks to bring the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge
The former Real Madrid manager has again decided to build his defensive ranks around English centre-back John Terry but was less sentimental with Petr Cech as Thibaut Courtois now holds the No.1 spot.
Kurt Zouma now seems to be the preferred choice over Gary Cahill with Branislav Ivanovic, who BT Sport pundit Owen Hargreaves described as the best defender in the Premier League pre-match, remaining forever entrenched in the defensive ranks…I said “forever entrenched”
It appears that a pre-match graphic doesn’t consider the Serbian international as “forever entrenched” when they bizarrely opted to ignore the defender’s inclusion in the starting XI and instead decided to double-up on images of Cesar Azpilicueta.
I know the Spaniard can run and run but asking him to cover both full-back positions seems a bit much…
