Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Chelsea predicted XI: Mourinho set for reshuffle as Blues look to keep winning run going

Posted by

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be confident that his beleaguered stars can continue on from their victory over Norwich at the weekend to go one step towards qualification for the next stage of the Champions League against Israeli giants Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The Blues ended a run of three straight defeats by overcoming Norwich, which will hopefully have demonstrated their desire to correct their sliding form and get back on track following a slow start.

But in form or not, Chelsea will surely have too much quality for Maccabi, and win coupled with a Porto victory over Dynamo Kiev, will see The Blues book their place in the next round.

Begovic

GK: Asmir Begovic

Courtois still isn’t fit enough to return, so Begovic will take his place in between the sticks once again.

Azpilicueta

LB: Cesar Azpilicueta

The Spaniard has been quiet this season, but given his position that’s probably a good thing.

Terry

CB: John Terry

The veteran will be charged with leading by example alongside a new defensive partner.

Zouma

CB: Kurt Zouma

Mourinho could use this game as an opportunity to rest Gary Cahill to give Zouma more of a taste of Champions League action.

Branislav Ivanovic

RB: Branislav Ivanovic

The veteran Serb has played his way back into the side lately, but how much of that is down to the side’s problems at left-back?
