Here’s the side we reckon Jose Mourinho will select to start for the Blues in their mammoth Champions League tie with PSG this evening…
GK) Petr Cech
We don’t expect there to be too many surprises in Mourinho’s defensive setup this evening. Cech starts in goal, and barring a late injury, he’ll be doing so again tonight.
DR) Branislav Ivanovic
The Serbian will no doubt have been encouraged by his manager to focus solely on his defensive duties. The Blues primary objective will likely be to stop the hosts scoring.
DC) Gary Cahill
In all likelihood, regular central defensive partnership Cahill and Terry will continue at the back.
DC) John Terry
The club captain scored an own goal against Crystal Palace at the weekend, and will be desperate to bounce back and put in a strong performance. He faces the unenviable task of battling the brilliant Zlatan Ibrahimovic up top for the Parisians, however.
DL) Cesar Azpilicueta
Azpiliceuta will be coming up against the exceptional Edinson Cavani for PSG, so like Ivanovic on the right of the back four, will be expected to concentrate primarily on his defensive duties.
