Merlin from Vital Chelsea expects John Terry and Joe Cole to start at Stamford Bridge as he shares his memories of clashes gone by.

For all the opposite view on the upcoming London derby and to share in the pre-match banter visit Vital Chelsea >>>

What are your earliest memories of a game with QPR?

Very bad ones! Back in the mid-eighties I recall, one Easter, getting turned over 4-0 by West Ham at Stamford Bridge . Next up was a trip to Loftus Road , easy pickings we all though, wrong! We got turned over 6-0 and our title ambitions for that season were blown away!

What is your favourite memory when it comes to a QPR game?

My all time favourite - It has to be Paul Furlong`s winner when we played in that graphite and tangerine strip - I thought it`d never come!

What has been your least favourite memory?

Apart from the answer given in question one if would have to be the time you came to our place, in the League Cup I believe and Eddie, our Welsh keeper, picked up a bad knee injury that forced him off. David Speedie promptly went in goal and your lot simply lofted the ball over his head to win!

A 100% record to take into the game, need I ask how Ancelotti has done for you so far?

He`s continued the good work done by Guus Hiddink and the transition has been remarkably smooth. After the trauma of Phil Scolari, it`s great to have a manager in charge who knows exactly how to run a club!

What sort of side do you expect to face QPR - name your starting eleven.

Ancelotti has indicated that there will be changes that youth, plus those coming back from injury will feature. Obviously there will be no Drogba and picking a starting eleven is something of a lottery but it could be something like this;

Turnbull, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Terry, Hutchinson , Mikel, J.Cole, Lampard, Malouda, Sturridge, Kalou

To what extent do supporters consider QPR a local 'rival'?

The support always considers Spurs as our biggest London rivals but that`s probably a division thing. I guess it`s kind of unique having three big clubs in such a relatively small piece of London . However, because of what has gone on in previous years I`d rate you more of a big rival than Fulham!

Your team is taking a lax attitude to the League Cup this season, is that a disappointment to you?

In a way yes because we`ve won it twice in recent years and it was Mourinho`s first trophy but if Arsenal can get to the latter rounds with youngsters I don`t see any reason why our fringe squad can`t do something similar.

Which player(s) should QPR fear?

All eleven - we`re class!

Conversely is there anyone that you think could light the game up for Rangers?

Jay Simpson, on his day, could cause trouble as could your other speedster, Wayne Routledge.

What is your prediction for the result and how do you expect the game to pan out?

It`ll be close, it could go to extra time but I can`t see us losing. Can you?

With thanks to Merlin from Vital Chelsea
