Jose Mourinho has has a week to prepare for our next opponent, a trip to Hull City (or Hull Tigers, I just don't know anymore). Hull have been a pleasant surprise this season, and sit in 10th place after 20 games. The club is just six points clear of the relegation zone though, so they still need to manage some results before they can feel truly safe.
Chelsea have a fit enough squad that Steve Bruce will probably feel lucky to come away with anything. Branislav Ivanovic, Frank Lampard, and Marco van Ginkel are all out, while Kevin De Bruyne seems to be on his way to Germany. While De Bruyne hasn't officially been ruled out, I can't imagine we'd consider selecting a player and risking his move falling apart due to injury.
We'd like to know what you would do in Mourinho's shoes, so please fill out the form below to let us know. The results can be seen by clicking this link, and feel free to discuss your selections in the comment section below.
