Chelsea: Best 5-a-side team

Chelsea have enough quality in their ranks to field three or four top quality 5-a-side teams - but which of their five stars would make it into the 'A' team?

This unit would surely give any 5-a-side team in the world a good run for their money.

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech

Petr Cech, at the age of 31, is still one of the most reliable goalkeepers in the business.

The Czech Republic international is a man for the big occasion and, it's fair to say, he has been one of the Blues' best ever signings.

Thibault Courtois would have been a serious contender for the No. 1 jersey - but the Belgian international is currently starting a third loan spell with La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid.

Defender: David Luiz

David Luiz edges out every other Chelsea defender for this role at the heart of the club's 5-a-side team.

The reason? Luiz is capable of bringing the ball out from defence, has pace to recover when caught out of position and is equipped with an outstanding long-range shot - making him a goal-threat from deep.

Midfielder: Juan Mata

Jose Mourinho doesn't seem to fancy him much, but the talented Spaniard Juan Mata makes the 5-a-side team ahead of Oscar and Willian.

Mata is blessed with sublime vision, quick feet and is capable of scoring from all angles.

Midfielder: Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard was the first name on the team-sheet. The Belgium star, one of the most talented players in the Premier League, would surely make the difference in Chelsea's 5-a-side team.

Hazard can score goals, create, leave defenders looking like fools and is simply a class act.

Any 5-a-side team with Hazard in their ranks would expect to triumph.

Striker: Samuel Eto'o

In attack, you need a lethal finisher - someone cold in front of goal who will tuck chances away for fun. So, who better than Samuel Eto'o?

The Cameroon international, who has won the lot at clubs like Barcelona and Inter Milan, edges out Fernando Torres and Demba Ba for the No. 9 shirt.

Is this Chelsea's best 5-a-side team? Have your say in the comments section below.
