The 2013/14 Champions League is underway and Chelsea start their campaign with a home match against Swiss champions FC Basel.
These two sides have already met this year, when the Blues beat Basel over two legs in the Europa League semi-finals – before going on to triumph over Benfica and win the tournament.
However, having won this competition twice before returning manager Jose Mourinho will not want to see the west London side in the second tier of Europe this time around.
Mourinho triumphed with FC Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010, but could not quite manage it when last in England and will be hoping to achieve it this time around.
Basel have some good individuals but overall should be no match for a squad as strong as the one available at Stamford Bridge.
The boss has hinted that youngsters such as Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Oscar will be given a run out and therefore the out-of-favour Juan Mata may have to watch from the bench once again.
