Schalke v Chelsea, Tues 6 November (ko 7.45pm BST)
With seven straight wins and a more attractive style of football, it seems that Avram Grant knows what he’s doing after all. The Chelse are on course to qualify with an away win in Germany tonight – at the same stadium we went out of the 2006 World Cup at.
Grant would be brave to leave out Shaun Wright-Philips, who was awesome at the weekend, but he prefers Joe Cole and Malouda on the wings in Europe. We expect Lampard’s recent form will make him Chelsea’s main man while Schalke will be hoping Soren Larson can score the goals in the absence of Kuranyi and Asamoah.
