Chelsea vs. Manchester City: You choose the squad

Saturday should provide one of the most interesting contests remaining in the Premier League title race, when Manchester City come calling at Stamford Bridge. A win for Chelsea would put them eight points clear at the top, with most of their tricky away fixtures already played. A City win cuts the gap to just two points, while a draw would see the status quo maintained.

Unfortunately, this version of the you choose the squad form has me a little bit lost. Without the pre-match press conference and the injury updates that go with it, I really have no idea what to make of Chelsea's trio of injuries. I'd guess that both Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis will be unavailable, but that's simply speculation based on practically nothing. Branislav Ivanovic, on the other hand, will almost certainly play, as a little blood wasn't ever going to slow the ManBearWolverine.

Following the injuries, there's the status of both Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah, who may or may not be Chelsea players at the time of kickoff. I've left them in the form for now, because...well, because why not, I suppose.

One absence we do know about with absolute certainty is Diego Costa, who has been banned for three matches for an action less violent than an Alexis Sanchez punch. With that in mind, please fill out the attached form with your selections for Saturday, and feel free to keep up with the results by clicking this link.
