Community Shield 2015: You choose the squad

Chelsea have two more friendlies to play before the 2015/16 season officially kicks off, the next of which will be played at Wembley. On Sunday, Chelsea take on Arsenal in the Community Shield, which matches the last season's Premier League champions against the winner of the FA Cup every August.

The rules for the Community Shield are a bit different than some friendlies, as both sides are required to name an 18-man squad ahead of the match. The clubs are allowed to make six substitutions, however, meaning all of the outfield players named to the squad have a decent chance of seeing minutes on Sunday.

Chelsea have two players dealing with injury at he moment, but I've decided to keep both Diego Costa and Gary Cahill as options for selection, anyway. Personally, I'd expect to see Costa ruled out between now and kickoff, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if Cahill is masked up and ready to play. I've also left Kenedy off the list, as I don't believe he's available to play friendlies in England without securing a work permit.

As always, please fill out the attached form with your selections, and feel free to keep up on the results by clinking this link.
