The Portuguese coach confirmed that his first team will consists of experienced first team players such as Cech, Terry, Cole, Lampard and Essien, while youngsters Piazon, Kalas, Lukaku and De Bruyne will all get a chance to impress.

There will also be debuts for new signings Wallace and Schurrle before Mourinho makes wholesale changes at half time. Here are the teams Mourinho told Chelseafc.com he’ll be playing n Wednesday:

Petr Cech, Wallace, Tomas Kalas, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Michael Essien, Lucas Piazon, Kevin De Bruyne, Andre Schurrle, Romelu Lukaku.
