How Chelsea Will Line Up Without Cesc Fabregas: Three Options For José Mourinho To Choose From Against Hull

Posted by

Option 2: Ramires alongside Matic, Schurrle on the right


Advantages: Ramires is a much more defensive player than Oscar, and will shield the defence much better. With Ramires alongside Matic in the centre, there is not as much need to play the hard-working Willian on the right. The Brazilian has disappointed in recent weeks, and André Schurrle deserves a chance.

Disadvantages: While a hard worker, Ramires lacks any of the quality in possesion that Fabregas has, and with Hull presumably sitting deep, neither Ramires nor Schurrle will really be able to exploit their pace on the break.
