Chelsea: Predicted line-up vs Basel

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho would have been impressed with Chelsea's 3-0 victory over West Ham this past weekend and may not make many changes as his side travel to FC Basel in the Champions League tomorrow night. 

The Blues are on course to reach the knockout stages of the competition as they currently sit top of Group E. 

However, they face a tricky test at St. Jakob-Park as they have already been beaten by the Swiss outfit this season. 

In the opening game of the group stage, the Blues were beaten 2-1 at Stamford Bridge against Basel and will be desperate for revenge tomorrow evening. 

Mourinho's side can ensure qualification to the last 16 if they beat their opponents and will be certain of top spot if Schalke fail to win away at Steaua.

The Blues will be hoping to take their form of the weekend into the clash and aren't expected to make many changes. 

Mourinho may give Ashley Cole a recall, who has been replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta in recent weeks. The Portuguese tactician may also rest Frank Lampard and could replace the England international with Andre Schurrle. 

Juan Mata may once again have to settle for a place on the bench as Oscar is expected to continue his role as the Blues' No.10.

In attack, Samuel Eto'o looks set to continue his role in attack as the Blues go in search of victory in Switzerland.

Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Hazard, Oscar, Schürrle, Eto'o
