Cole - wingback att
Terry - Ball playing defender - stopper
Ivanovic - limited defender - cover
Renan never had him
Essien - Ball winning midfielder - support
Lampard - Central midfielder - attack (long shots often, run into channels)
Malouda - winger att
Kalou - inside forward - att
Replace Rossi... Not really Chelsea starting 11 potiental
Drogba - target man/ complete forward att

cole-full back attack
terry central defender defend
alex central defender stopper
if u play with bosingwa full back attack,ivanovic full back support
lampard advanced playmaker attack
essien ball winning defender defend
malouda inside forward attack
kalou inside forward attack
rossi trquarista or deep lying forward
drogba advanced forward

i know drogba is complete forward but rossi have enough creativity and great passing so rossi will be the creative striker,and if u set essien as ball winning midfielder support,u will notice that his tackling is hard so he willget u cards,better set as defend.and try to read some thread in this forum title is a guide to formation and tactic,it tells you about partnership combo like full back attack+ inside forward....i.e malouda inside forward cole full back attack.so malouda will open space for cole to overlapping runs and provide cross.remember to set wide play hug touchline and zonalmarking +tight marking so they will not run out of position
