Trophy in hand.  Packed and ready to check out and go on vacation.  Three more games.  Here's the first.

A reminder, from Jose Mourinho:

True to his word, Jose gives RLC the start, while Filipe Luis, Mikel, and Kurt Zouma join the party as well.  Rémy, finally healthy, gets the nod up top.  There's a fresh face on the bench, too, goalkeeper Mitchell Beeney.

UP THE BLUES!
