As expected, John Terry returns to the starting lineup.  Zouma drops to the bench.  The back four has last season's familiar shape to it; let's see if they can rediscover that form.  Perhaps the one surprise is that Ramires keeps his place, over Matic.  Falcao leads the line, the attacking three also last season's familiar setup.

Here we go.  COME ON, CHELSEA!
