Although the problem being for Antonio starting there is that Feghouli will start ahead of him because I have to admit I like this fella and from what I have seen of him and heard about him I think he will be lethal in that position. I think he may well turn out to be one of the signings (bargain signings anyway) for this season, fingers crossed.

Saying all that Antonio would make a very good like for like if he is sitting on the bench, which I am not too sure he would like that.

It's more hope than anything else that Bilic sees the error of his ways and puts Byram at RB and puts Antonio on the right wing but we all know really that deep down he will not do this.

Ok thanks thats what i thought, byram will have to play LB for the Europa qualifiers anyway as Masuaku is cup tied so my guess will be he puts antonio RB for these games too and byram will be cover for LB and RB in the prem?

I am worried by our defence and Chelsea will target Antonio for sure, but I hope I am wrong and I would be more than happy with a point.

Conte is a shrewd coach and will undoubtedly set Hazard against Antonio and I think it could get a bit embarrassing.
We need to show the rest of the league, that the Olympian Hammers can do the biz away from their Olympian fortress.
Otherwise,people will start writing us off and tweeting snide comments which can be really hurtful.

What's wrong with our defence?.... :)
Nothing major,just the defending part.

Chelski's defense will definitely give us a chance as will ours probably give them one.
Head says 2-2 heart says 3-1 to the Hammers.

Agree with comments Chelsea will be up for this . As others have said if defence holds up with have a chance. First games are very unpredictable just like pre-season results so it is harder to predict how all the ga whufc_crest mes will go Record at Chelsea is poor so would take a 1-1

If we start with Antonio at RB and Feghouli wide right, I'm genuinely worried Azpilicueta and Hazard will tear us a new one. Antonio simply isn't a right back and we can't rely on Feghouli to help with defensive duties. I'm hoping Byram starts at full back and Antonio is played in his recognised position. We need to get in to Fabregas early as well as he pulls all the strings and we tend to set up allowing the oppos plenty of space in midfield - He'll pick us apart at will if allow him space.

We've conceded at least 2 goals in 8 of our last 10 games, which is alarming to say the least. Head says a mollifying 4-0 heart says 1-1. Worried I am, just like I was last season against the Gooners...

I half agree with this mate in that yes you're right to be very optimistic about Feghouli but not sure I agree about him starting as a RM in front of Antonio.
Antonio has already proved himself to be lethal whereas Feghouli clearly shows the potential to be.
It's a long-hard season so rotating them in that position to keep fresh and full of energy would be my preference.

That's if Slav removes his Antonio blindfold of course.
