March Discussion: Part 2.1

          From this point onwards, players who are missing or didn't play for the month will not be mentioned below...

Fernando-Torres - Chelsea

Starters (4-2-3-1):
Cech (GK)
Azpilicueta (RB)
Luiz (CB)
Terry (CB)(c)
Cole (LB)
Mikel (CM)
Ramires (CM)
Oscar (RW)
Mata (AM)
Hazard (LW)
Ba (ST)



1. Cech: Magnificent saves and sheer athleticism makes him one of the best shot-stoppers and he remains an invaluable asset to the club.

2. Ivanovic: Played as CB more often now, but had to play as RB to give Azpilicueta the rest he needs. Powerful athlete.

3. Cole: Considerably the club's most indispensable old guard. Bertrand was nowhere near his level, and we certainly need Cole for the near future.

4. Luiz: With Mikel back, played in his initial position (CB) recently, however didn't disappoint most of time. Great player.

7. Ramires: His energy and speed remains a great asset for the club.

8. Lampard: Edging towards breaking Sir Bobby Tambling's club record, however loses out in the starting eleven given Mikel & Ramires' recent performances.

9. Torres: Scored an important goal against Steaua, however Ba's recent performances edges him out of the eleven.

10. Mata: Could never take this man out of the starting eleven. Whenever he don't play/perform well, we are basically struggling. Remains our hero/saviour time and time again.

11. Oscar: Connected well when playing with Hazard & Mata, however struggled to get the game going when left alone.

12. Mikel: His return to form was pleasing. A strong figure in the holding position, and very calm on the ball. Good to have him back, and deservedly earn a place in the starting eleven.
