Predicted Chelsea Team To Take On Schalke – Jose To Make Changes

By on November 5, 2013

Chelsea take on Schalke at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night looking to go one step closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Blues are currently level on six points with tomorrow’s opposition, with FC Basel just two points off the pace, so this is a crucial game in determining how Group E will shape up.

Jose Mourinho will have to make do without the services of striker Fernando Torres after the Spaniard picked up an injury in training. Samuel Eto’o is expected to deputise up front with Demba Ba also pushing for a recall.

Mourinho has confirmed he’ll make changes after Saturday’s disappointing 2-0 loss to Newcastle. Cesar Azpilicueta may come in at right back while Gary Cahill should come in for David Luiz at centre back.

Mikel is also in-line to start while Willian and Andre Schurrle may get their chance to impress in attack at the expense of Oscar and Juan Mata.

Here’s the line-up Mourinho may go with:
