Chelsea take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge tomorrow afternoon fresh from a better performance against Huddersfield and I believe that we should take the opportunity to rest two of our most influential players.

Of course with the busy period we are in now leading up to Christmas, Antonio Conte will be tempted to rotate his players once again and in my view, we could see as many as five or six changes to the Chelsea side that started against Huddersfield.

It's Barcelona in the Champions League with a nightmare run of games sandwiched in between.

Chelsea have drawn Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 knockout stages with our first leg at home on February 20th followed by the return leg on March 14th.

It's the second best draw we could have hoped for with Besitkas being the preferred tie. We have avoided PSG which is a result as they face Real Madrid but looking at the dates of our games against the Catalan side, it gives Antonio Conte and his Chelsea side a problem with what could be key Premier League games sandwiched in between.
