Chelsea predicted XI vs Porto: Mourinho to recall the heavy artillery to keep Champions League hopes alive

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea faces a crunch meeting with his former club Porto on Wednesday night with their Champions League hopes still hanging in the balance.

It’s not been a good season for the Blues so far, but Europe’s most elite club competition remains a beacon of light for the club’s beleaguered fans.

However, this won’t be an easy clash, and only a victory will be enough to keep them from befalling the same fate as Manchester United and dropping down into the Europa League.

With that in mind, it will take a monumental effort from the club’s players, and it’s likely that Mourinho will select a strong XI. Scroll below to see who we think he’ll pick…

Thibaut Courtois

GK: Thibaut Courtois

With the Belgian now back in action, he’ll want to atone for conceding to Bournemouth at the weekend.

Azpilicueta

LB: Cesar Azpilicueta

Back in his role on the left, as he’d represent a safer bet than Baba Rahman.

John Terry injury vs Maccabi

CB: John Terry

Terry’s inclusion will largely come down to whether he’s fit, but if he can lace his boots his experience will be vital.

Gary Cahill

CB: Gary Cahill

If he can line up alongside Terry, his presence will undoubtedly represent a huge boost of confidence for Blues fans.

Branislav Ivanovic

RB: Branislav Ivanovic

Another experienced performer that will be expected to come up with the goods.
