And I got my wants
Still get that feeling
But I'm too old to die young now

Good ol' Interim is back with the head-scratchers, starting both David Luiz AND Ramires. Because John Terry will be so useful of Manchester United, right? Ugh.

This is Chelsea's 64th match of the season, equaling the previous club record.
