Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that striker Radamel Falcao has a 'little problem' but should be fine to feature in the club's Champions League clash with Maccabi Tel-Aviv tomorrow evening.

Mourinho, who has been speaking in a press conference ahead of the group-stage match at Stamford Bridge, also admitted that the duo of Oscar and Baba Rahman will feature. 

Chelsea, of course, have endured a nightmare start to the season, having secured just four points from their opening five Premier League fixtures.

However, with European competition set to begin, Mourinho will be hoping that his side can make amends after last weekend's disappointing defeat at the hands of Everton.

Falcao, meanwhile, will be desperate to start for the west London outfit after scoring his first goal for the club before the international break. 

All to prove

With Chelsea's top players clearly out of form, perhaps Falcao should be handed a starting role tomorrow evening. The Blues must improve sooner rather than later, so gambling on the Colombian could prove a risk worth taking for Mourinho. 

Of course, the striker, who struggled on the English scene with Manchester United last season, still has a great deal to prove in west London, but he could yet shine for the club in their pursuit of success. 

Diego Costa is failing to produce the goods in front of goal, so the Blues boss has a big decision to make ahead of tomorrow's clash. One thing's for sure, Mourinho and Co. will be determined to get back to winning ways ahead of the club's Premier League fixture with rivals Arsenal. 

Chelsea fans: Should Falcao start tomorrow? Have your say below!
