Predicted Chelsea XI to play Maribor - One change for the Blues

Chelsea are the favourites heading into their Champions League game against Maribor.

Chelsea will be confident heading into their Champions League game against Maribor after a good start in Europe this season.

The Blues have four points from their first two games after a draw against FC Schalke was followed by a win away at Sporting Lisbon.

Jose Mourinho has already revealed that he wants two wins from his team in the back-to-back games against Maribor, which will put Chelsea onto ten points which is normally enough to qualify for the knock out round.

The Blues are in great form domestically and have maintained their momentum from before the international break with a 2-1 victory against London rivals Crystal Palace.

The Blues sit at the top of the Premier League with a good cushion and Mourinho has good squad options ahead of this European clash, which will help compensate for a couple of injuries to key players.

Here’s the possible starting side that Mourinho could start with for the game.

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis, Willian, Matic, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard, Remy
