With Jose basically picking the lineup immediately after the Fulham match on Saturday, most of the starting eleven should not be a surprise at all.

One very nice surprise development is what we guessed yesterday:  Lewis Baker, 18, makes his first senior bench!  Richly deserved.  Joining him from the youth team is backup goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.

Michael Essien is your captain.  It's his first time.
