CONFIRMED: Chelsea line-up v Maribor - Zouma starts!

Here is the Chelsea side Jose Mourinho has selected to play Maribor this evening.

Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry (c), Filipe Luis; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Remy

Subs: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ake, Salah, Solanke, Drogba

Chelsea can move onto seven points with a victory against Maribor this evening, which would put the Blues close to the ten point mark, which is normally enough to see sides progress from the Champions League group stage and into the knock out round.

Chelsea head into this match after very different performances against Schalke at home, where they drew, and Sporting Lisbon away, where they snatched a narrow 1-0 victory.

The Blues have been the best team in England so far this season and this competition represents a real chance for them to impress in front of their own fans in a match they should dominate.

Chelsea are missing front man Diego Costa who has a hamstring problem, with Jose Mourinho admitting that he doesn’t know how long the Spanish international is going to be out of action for.
