Simulating and playing Chelsea’s next Premier League match on FIFA 18. Can the virtual Blues beat the virtual Blaugrana?

In this series, I will use FIFA 18 to simulate as well as play the next Chelsea FC match -- with the difficulty on the highest level, because much like Chelsea FC, I occasionally like to make things difficult on myself for no reason whatsoever.

My shot at glory (with commentary):

For the starting lineup I have the following to take on the Blaugrana:

Courtois | Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Kante, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Moses | Hazard, Morata

For one of the biggest games of the year I pulled out all the stops. The simulation predicted a decent result for Chelsea, anything holding Barcelona to zero goals is a great result. But I wanted to shoot for the stars, and it didn’t go exactly as planned.

As always, featuring the same lineups as above.
