The experienced Cameroon international injured his hamstring in the west London club’s 6-0 thrashing of rivals Arsenal in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge last month.

And with the 33-year-old only due back in training at Cobham on Monday, the veteran striker faces a race against time to be fit for the second-leg clash in which the Blues trail 3-1 from last week’s first meeting in the French capital.

“Maybe I will pick him. But to risk a player, you need to have minimum conditions to take that risk,” said Mourinho.

“If you think he’s going to be out after 10 minutes of the game, you can’t take that risk. If there is a minimum of conditions of risk, then yes.

“We need to score goals. If we don’t score a minimum of two goals, we are out. We know that. If we can have everybody available who can give us a chance to score goals, then let’s do that.”
