Chelsea will look get their season back on track when they take on Stoke in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick:

Goalkeeper: With Thibaut Courtois still out with a knee injury, Mourinho may look to protect Asmri Begovic by handing Marco Amelia a debut between the sticks.

Defence: However, the Portuguese coach could stick with an experienced back four as he looks to secure a much-needed victory following their loss at West Ham on Saturday.

Baba Rahman is likely to come in at left-back with Cesar Azpilicueta rested but John Terry, Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma could all retain their places. Branislav Ivanovic is set to miss out again with a hamstring injury.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic will be suspended following his controversial dismissal at Upton Park at the weekend so John Obi Mikel could come in to the starting eleven with youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek also given another run-out in the middle of the park.

Attack: The likes of Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Willian and Diego Costa could all be given a rest with Oscar and Radamel Falcao coming back in to the starting eleven. Young Brazilian forward Kenedy could also be given another chance to impress in attack.

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

Back Chelsea to win at odds of 5/1 + money back if you lose
