After an entire 24 hours without an actual match in the Premier League or live chat here on the blog, we're back. I'll be in a meeting for kickoff but it is my hope that I'll be able to follow at some level. No starting line-ups announced as of this writing but we do know that David Luiz is not fit for Chelsea. Here are the things we'll be looking at:

1) Does Lampard do any better in his deeper-lying role? Chelsea weren't very fluid moving from defense to attack against Wigan (after the first few minutes at least).

2) Does Oscar get more of a run with many CHE players entering their 3rd match in a week (including internationals, many of which included travel)?

3) Will Ramires be back and is his speed the missing ingredient that will bring the talents of Mata and Hazard together more frequently?

Get to chatting...
