How should Chelsea line up against AFC Bournemouth in Saturday's mid-table showdown?

Another week passed.  Another week closer to the end of the season.

Bournemouth have been ensured Premier League survival for some time now and have since hit a Chelsea-esque barren patch of crap results in meaningless matches.  This one's sure to be a barn-burner then.

With the improving health of the first-team squad and the commitments of the youth teams both in England and in Europe, Hiddink's youth revolution was put on hold after the Villa and Swansea matches.  While the U18 squad will be involved in the two-legged FA Youth Cup final over the next week (Friday and Wednesday), some of the older boys could possibly see time with the first-team not only in training but on matchday as well.

Kurt Zouma, Loïc Rémy, and probably John Terry remain out for this weekend.  Eden Hazard has been back to training for a little while now and all signs point to him being available.  Same goes for Oscar who missed the Manchester City debacle through some sort of mysterious illness.

So, plenty of options.  Except maybe at goalkeeper, where Thibaut Courtois begins his own two-match suspension.

Choose wisely.
