Chelsea will look to get their Champions League campaign back on track when they face Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday night. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick:

Goalkeeper: Asmri Begovic is set to continue between the sticks with Thibaut Courtois ruled out for the foreseeable future after knee surgery.

Defence: Mourinho is expected to make some changes to the side that beat Aston Villa on Saturday and that could see Gary Cahill come back in alongside skipper John Terry at the back. Kurt Zouma has performed well recently but Mourinho may opt for Cahill’s experience in this tricky European away tie.

Branislav Ivanovic is still out with a hamstring injury so Cesar Azpilicueta should continue at right-back with summer signing Baba Rahman on the left.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is expected to be recalled after being left on the bench against Villa at the weekend with youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek likely to make way. Cesc Fabregas should keep his place and start alongside the Serbian international.

Attack: Eden Hazard is set for a recall to the starting eleven after he was controversially left out against Villa as Pedro has been ruled out with a minor injury. Loic Remy will also miss the game so Diego Costa should continue up front after getting on the score-sheet last time out.

Willian had another impressive game on Saturday so he should retain his place while Oscar may come in for Ramires in the attack.

Here is how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
