How Chelsea will line up to face Schalke in the Champions League.
Jose Mourinho’s men can secure qualification to the next round of the Champions League with a victory over Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke on Tuesday night. However, it will be no easy task, so Mourinho will have to call on a fairly strong side to see them complete the task. Here’s how we think they’ll line up.

GK: Petr Cech
Similar to Iker Casillas at Real Madrid, Cech is now only really called upon for cup competitions.
LB: Felipe Luis
The Brazilian will come in for Azpilicueta, giving the Spaniard the chance to rest up.
CB: John Terry
The skipper will lead the defence against the Germans.
CB: Gary Cahill
Despite featuring in both England games as well as playing against West Brom at the weekend, Cahill will likely line up alongside Terry once more.
RB: Branislav Ivanovic
May not be able to maraud as mush as he’d like against the Bundesliga side, but will instead shore up the defence to ensure qualification.
