    vs Shaktar

    Until recently all the wise guys used to talk about Chelsea's old team and how we needed to spend zillions replacing them. Last night we had just three players in the team who were first team players two or three years ago: Cech, Ivanovic and Mikel. The other starting eight were Cahil, Luiz, Bertrand, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Mata and Torres. Subs were Moses and Sturridge.

    All in all a pretty young team. And it wasn't a second team put out against opponents - it was a crucial CL match against a team that hadn't lost in 37 matches in any competition.

    The future is blue.

    • This side is full of under 25's and full of talent, and new. This is the first season that I can remember when there is not one player in Chelsea's squad that I wish was not there.

      When they have been playing together for as long as Shaktar have they should be truly great.
