FC Porto vs. Chelsea, Champions League: Pick your starting eleven

After the setback of last weekend way up north in Newcastle, it's a quick turnaround for an even longer journey way down south to Portugal.  FC Porto await.

Mourinho's former club, despite their own disappointing weekend result, lead the Portuguese league ahead of Sporting Lisbon on goal difference.  They have yet to lose a competitive match this season, though they did manage just a draw in Ukraine against Dynamo Kiev on matchday 1 of the Champions League group stages.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have slipped up after three straight wins, but should have the entire squad available, other than Thibaut Courtois and his healing knee.  Diego Costa is legal for this competition; his ban only applies for domestic games.

This is a slightly different form than usual.  Don't worry about picking the bench players; all we're interested in are the starting eleven.  And no, you cannot pick more than one goalkeeper, or just nine players, or whatever other silliness you might have in mind.  Due to popular demand, Branislav Ivanović was not made a mandatory starting pick.
