Yeah, agree with all of this. Oscar in for Mata. Hopefully Ramires is back, but if not, Hazard was decent on the right and he and Oscar can rotate, while Bertrand holds left wing. Essien in for Mikel. Let's see where Essien is at. And Cahill deserves to be starting every game, but RDM seems to be in love with Luiz.
Ivanovic Cahill Terry Cole
Ramires Oscar Hazard
Sturridge needs some minutes on Wednesday. Can't make him feel isolated from the squad.
