Marseille (4-1-4-1): Mandanda; Kabore, Diawara, Heinze, Taiwo; N'Diaye; Valbuena, Abriel, Cheyrou, Remy; Brandao.

Subs: Elinton Andrade, Cissé, Lucho Gonzalez, J Ayew, A Ayew, Sabo.

Since Chelsea are guaranteed top spot and Marseille guaranteed second, there will be exactly one person who cares about this match, and that person is Didier Drogba, making an emotional return to his previous home. For some reason, the only kid playing is McEachran, which seems weird, because this is literally the perfect time to blood them. I suspect Carlo Ancelotti is trying to boost his side's confidence with a big win here.
