How should Chelsea line up against Tottenham Hotspur in the most important game left this season?

Lads, it's ... time to pick the lineup.

That the only meaning left in Chelsea's trophy-less, aimless, worthless season is to perhaps troll Spurs and put the final nail in their title-challenge coffin is not exactly an ideal or desirable situation, but that's what it's come down to.  That Spurs were incompetent enough to not get three points last weekend against West Bromwich Pulisalbion and thus possibly deny us this glorious opportunity is perhaps all for the better, given Chelsea's struggles.  If Leicester beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, they will have clinched their historic Premier League title.

Still, this occasion will be a big one, with plenty of pride and bragging rights at stake, plus that 26-year unbeaten streak against Tottenham at the Bridge.

For Chelsea, this will be the healthiest the squad has been in some time.  Both Gary Cahill and John Terry should be back, so other than Kurt Zouma and Loïc Rémy, and the suspended Thibaut Courtois, everyone should be available for selection.  That does probably mean even more limited opportunities for the kids from the Academy, but hopefully they'll get their turn again before the end of the season.

Choose wisely.
