Alternatively don't start Arteta and play with 2 strikers.

Arteta didn't look ready for 60 odd mins today let alone 90. Go with another striker perhaps or Neville back to the middle. Can't see Moyes playing both Yak and Saha with Cahill up too so its likely going to be one of the defenders up to DM.

Has everyone forgot who Chelsea are? They will demolish that midfield.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

They've been shaky at times recently though, just got to hope we catch them on an off day.

I think fellaini will be needed if we're to beat chelsea, we might grab a draw but without him we don;t have the physical capabilities to cope with chelsea's midfield. Oh and Drogba is back from ACN, not looking to bright.

Bily - Osman - Neville - Donovan
Baines - Distin - Heitinga - Coleman

I really hope that the players turn up this time, and i hope that Fellaini is fit to play too, but that would mean Neville out and Coleman in.

Don't worry we've got Senderos.

Not fair really. He's played once for us, and done well. Let him fuck up first before you have a go.

I agree that Rodwell should not be back in to replace Fellaini.  He's not up to it yet.  Heitinga has also made a space for himself at centre half.  Why move him into the middle where he frankly looks lost?
There's nobody better than Murf667, she's the best little Evertonian I know!
As for you, Murf 668, your Everton shirt can hardly wait.

If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.  Checkmate!

I was referring to his Arsenal days.  I will give him a chance with us of course.

Not sure if that applies for a straight red only.

His Arsenal days? Because you really should judge center backs by how well they do as youngsters against top players. Rio Ferdinand was no one at 22.

But I hope he can prove you (and me to some extent) wrong and be a success here.

Why move him into the middle where he frankly looks lost?

2 reasons, firstly hes the only player we have who is both healthy and able to pass the ball 10 yards, secondly we have Distin and Senderos to fill in at the back, but putting together a decent 5 man midfield is proving dificult (unless of course you rate Osman and Neville as quality midfielders, which some do, but I don't)
