chicarooneyThis is how I think the lineups will be, I think both managers will be giving some players a chance, Oscar will make his debut with Marin on the bench to maybe come on later as a super-sub if Chelsea are struggling, my prediction is 2-1 to Chelsea Torres and Hazard to score Aguero to score for City.
Both teams subs bench will be like this
Hilario Cahill Meireles Mikel Marin Malouda Sturridge
Pantilimon Richards Clichy Johnson Nasri Dzeko Balotelli
chelseaboi99Oscar is not playing (Olympics). Apparently Mancini said Silva would not start but I cant find it anywhere (the quote).
My prediction is Man City (2)-(0) Chelsea, even though I'm a Chelsea fan. I think all the new additions might find it hard to gel in the first competitive game of the season, against such a good team.
chicarooneyGood to see your not biased with your favourite team.
EL NINO#9@chicharooney yeah it is a good thing yo not be biased but i think you guys are in for a shock.i think chelsea can steal this one,maybe i am biased in a way but i think this new chelsea team will do great things this season.but honestly my predictions is a draw with chelsea winning on penalties.
EL NINO#9orr and btw concerning the chelsea formation swap mata wid oscar and take out oscar for marin. and lampard and ramires as holding midfielders ? i dont think so take out ramires and put in mikel because both lampard and ramires arent dm but lampard can play a dm role though.
