Bamford, Loftus-Cheek & Baba Starts: Chelsea vs Scunthorpe Predicted Line-up

The EPL defending champion will continue their unbeaten run of form under the new boss Guus Hiddink on weekend when the play host to League One side Scunthorpe United in FA Cup third round clash.


Chelsea will be expected to secur the three maximum points against the lower division team. The Blues have been knocked-out of the Capital One Cup and they are far behind in the race to win the Premiership having started the season on a disappointed note.


The FA Cup seems to be the only domestic trophy the Blues could win this season. As a result, we expect the Dutch tactician to field in a strong squad consisting of both first eleven players as well as giving the young star an opportunity to showcase their quality.


The trio of Roben Loftus-cheek, Baba Rahman and Christian Atsu will be expected to have the nod over Fabregas, Branislav Ivanovic and Willian in the starting line-up respectively.


Second choice Shot stopper Begovic will be expected to stand in-between the pole while England sensational Striker Patrick Bamford leads the attack.
