Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Chelsea have no new injury worries ahead of Sunday's Premier League game against Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the match this weekend, Mourinho said that 'everyone wants to play' despite several players playing 120 minutes against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Chelsea crashed out of the competition on away goals after a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea twice led but were pegged back by goals from former-Blue David Luiz and Thiago Silva.

Chelsea were criticised for the actions of several of their players during the match, in particular the role they seemed to play in helping to get Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent off in the first half.

Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher were critical of the Premier League club on Sky Sports after the game, to which Mourinho responded in his press conference.

Chelsea face Southampton at the weekend, with Ronald Koeman's side still in touch with the Champions League qualification contenders.

They will need a positive result against the league leaders though, which despite their midweek exertions will not be easy.

With the Champions League off the agenda for this season, Chelsea now only have the Premier League to focus on. And as they sit five points clear as it stands with just 10 games left, it's going to take several slip-ups for rivals Manchester City to gain ground.

Expect Chelsea to bounce back swiftly from their Champions League disappointment, as Mourinho can call on several players - Juan Cuadrado, Loic Remy, etc - who will still be fresh and eager to impress if given the chance.
