Nemanja Matic is the least worked Chelsea player at the moment, and he should get the nod to start vs. Everton. Cesc Fabregas should be given the task of controlling Chelsea’s midfield this weekend and start in the deep-lying playmaker role.


Chelsea cannot think of going in the big games these days without Willian, and the Brazilian will be needed once again for Blues’ FA Cup quarter final clash vs. Everton this weekend. Pedro should start from the left-hand side, while Oscar should play in the number 10 role behind the probable debutante Alexandre Pato.
