1. Chelsea

Last Premier League XI: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Cahill, Terry, Ramires, Oscar, Mikel, Schurrle, Hazard, Eto'o.

Second XI: Schwarzer, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Ake, Bertrand, Van Ginkel, Lampard, Mata, Willian, Torres, Ba

Jose Mourinho has a quite unbelievable squad at his disposal. This second XI is so good that it could probably have a go at wining the title itself.

What certainly stands out is the midfield, Van Ginkel, Lampard, Mata and Willian are all world class and could probably slot into most Premier League teams.

Defensively, with Brazilian ace David Luiz, the Blues certainly wouldn't lack talent. The experience of Mark Schwarzer in goal would also be a positive to this side.

And, in attack, the Blues would have Fernando Torres and Demba Ba - two players when at their best can be a threat to near enough any defence.
