Bolton Wanderers v. Chelsea: Lineups and Open Thread

Bolton badly need a win, Chelsea badly want to assert their dominance. Jussi Jaaskelainen is out for the match, having not even made the bench meaning Adam Bogdan will take control at the back for what will surely be his biggest test in the Premier League. He played in the away match to Arsenal last  year but that ended a 4-1 loss. Otherwise Bolton have once again rung in the changes as Boyata takes Zat Knight's place (who is also not on the bench) and David Ngog will play off of Kevin Davies at the front. @jpeach17 said it best on Twitter when he quoted Gimli from Lord of the Rings:

"Certainty of death, small chance of success... What are we waiting for?"
