We've discussed the possibility that Ryan Bertrand will start against Bayern Munich already and although I liked the idea, I was fairly skeptical that Roberto di Matteo would make such a daring move. Turns out that no he's not, because all indications are that Bertrand will indeed be playing left midfield. In the Champions League final:
Starting Bertrand is a hugely gutsy call, and it might just play off. Jupp Heynckes doesn't have a reputation for being particularly bold, and if Chelsea are going to win this we'll have to rely on a brilliant performance from the players and some gambles from the manager. This, I think, is a step in the right direction.
