Chelsea will look secure qualification from the group stages of the Champions League when they take on Maccabi Tel Aviv tomorrow. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick:

Goalkeeper: With Thibaut Courtois still out with a knee injury, Asmir Begovic is set to continue between the sticks.

Defence: Mourinho could make some changes to keep his squad fresh ahead of Sunday’s huge clash with Tottenham so Kurt Zouma could be given a breather with Gary Cahill coming in to start alongside John Terry.

Branislav Ivanovic is another who may get a rest with Cesar Azpilicueta moving to right-back and Baba Rahman starting on the left side of defence.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is expected to keep his place while Ramires could be recalled in midfield having been left on the bench against Norwich City on Saturday. That would see Cesc Fabregas given a rest ahead of the weekend.

Attack: Willian is in fine form right now so he should keep his place in attack along with Eden Hazard – who is slowly regaining his best form. Oscar could come back in to the starting line-up with Pedro dropping to the bench.

Diego Costa was back among the goals on Saturday so Mourinho may look to keep the Spanish international in the team to see if he can build on that goal ahead of the Spurs clash. Radamel Falcao remains out through injury.

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

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?
