Here’s the side we reckon Jose Mourinho will select to start for the Blues in the second leg of the Champions League last 16…
GK) Petr Cech
The stalwart keeper is an automatic starter for the Blues in both the Premier League and the Champions League, and tonight will be no different.
DR) Branislav Ivanovic
The Serbian right-back will be encouraged to focus on defence first rather than getting up the flank, because as long as Chelsea don’t concede, they’ll qualify.
DC) Gary Cahill
David Luiz is still not 100%, but the Brazilian will struggle to displace the pairing of Cahill and Terry anyway. Cahill is aerially superb, but also has the pace to get himself out of trouble if he find himself in the wrong position, which to be fair, he rarely does.
DC) John Terry
The Chelsea captain can expect a tough night against his former teammate Didier Drogba, who will no doubt spearhead the Galatasaray side.
DL) Cesar Azpilicueta
Cole is not fit enough to start, meaning regular left-back Azpilicueta will continue on the left of a back four. Like Ivanovic on the other side, Jose Mourinho will have reminded him of his defensive responsibilities.
