Chelsea will be looking to book their place in the final of the Capital One Cup when they take on Liverpool in their semi final second leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will select:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois was rested for Saturday’s shock FA Cup loss at home to Bradford and he’ll be recalled along with a number of other first team regulars tomorrow night.

Defence: Mourinho will bring skipper John Terry back into defence alongside Gary Cahill with Kurt Zouma dropping out. Filipe Luis is also expected to come back in for Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back while Branislav Ivanovic will replace youngster Andreas Christensen at right-back.

Midfield: Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic were both rested on Saturday so the duo will almost certainly be recalled against Liverpool with John Obi Mikel and Ramires dropping back to the bench.

Attack: Eden Hazard, Willian and Diego Costa are all set to start having been rested at the weekend so the likes of Mohamed Salah, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy will make way. Oscar could keep his place in attack but Andre Schurrle isn’t likely to be involved as he seeks a move away from the club before the close of the transfer window.

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