Chelsea will be going for goals tonight in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final.
Away to Wycombe Wanderers, the Blues will be expecting to net a few goals, especially following Saturday's 6-1 mauling of Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho will be hoping, no expecting to take a healthy lead to the Bridge for the second, leg despite problems at the back.
Michael Essien and Paulo Ferreira will take the centre-back paring with Wayne Bridge and Germi patroling the flanks.
Michael Ballack will return following suspension and if mini Maka, Lassana Diarra can be bothered to turn up on time, then he should start in midfield ahead of Frank Lampard.
Up front will again be Andriy Shevchenko - waiting for his form to ignite - arn't we all?
Others in contention will be the usual suspects, of Kalou, Mikel, SWP and expect a couple of the kids on the bench.
