With Basel nicking a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League back in September, Chelsea will want to set the record straight this Tuesday evening.

Jose Mourinho's away record going into this game isn't great, with his side only winning three of their last six games away from west London in the Premier League. But, the Blues sit top of their Champions League group on nine points.

The last encounter saw Oscar give the home side the lead on the stroke of half-time, the second time the Brazilian has scored against the Swiss side, before two late goals from Mohamed Salah and captain Marco Streller sunk the Blues, to the delight of the travelling fans.

But Chelsea will aim for three points ahead of this encounter, considering last season the Premier League outfit beat the reigning Swiss Super League Champions over two legs to go on and win the Europa League title.

With a victory, Chelsea will qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.
