We asked you to choose your squad for the match in Romania today, and over 1,500 of you responded with the eighteen players you'd field. I'm going to do things a bit differently this time around, giving you the starting lineups you selected and then showing you the full results instead of simply writing down the votes each player received. Here's what you all decided on:
Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, Juan Mata, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres
This vote was up several hours before the news that Kevin De Bruyne had been left in London broke, and about a full day prior to the Eden Hazard injury becoming public knowledge. While the De Bruyne news really shouldn't have mattered as far as this is concerned, the Hazard news should have made it an easy choice to leave him out.
Mark Schwarzer, Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle, Cesar Azpilicueta, Frank Lampard, Willian, Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne is obviously not happening, but the rest of this bench could be very close. All told, this squad should definitely be good enough to take maximum points from this fixture, and that
will should be enough to make everyone happy
