Nemanja Matic v Bastian Schweinsteiger

So in our team there is one orthadox misfield spot and room for one more defensively minded player.

We've nominated Matic despite the fact that he's ineligible for Chelsea - his form since he joined the Blues from Benfica has been superb.

There are few more imposing players in the Champions League than Bastian Schweinsteiger, and despite the increased competition he's faced this season, he's still the main man for Bayern in midfield.

Xabi Alonso can count himself unlucky to have missed out on nomination, while Javi Martinez could have been in contention if he hadn't been deployed so frequently at the back.


Schweinsteiger is the main man in this area of the pitch because he can do the dirty work going backwards, but is also equally adept at picking a pass and putting the ball in the back of the net.
