Cech surprisingly edges out No 1 rival Courtois in Chelsea’s best XI of the season so far

ANALYSIS: Based on statistics across the season, Jose Mourinho may want to slightly tweak his starting XI if he wants to continue title march


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s starting XI is pretty easy to predict.

Out of the 29 games the Blues have played this season, three players have started every one and 11 players have started at least 21 matches.

Injury and suspension is usually the only reason Mourinho has changed his starting line-up, with the manager rarely feeling the need to change what has been a dominant team all season.

Part of that has been the failure of some of Chelsea’s second-string when given the chance to impress, like in the embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Bradford.

While Chelsea may be in an extremely strong position heading into the final weeks of the season, is Mourinho right to continue with the same side?
