Predicted Chelsea XI to play Maribor - One change for Mourinho

José Mourinho Celebrates

Here is the potential Chelsea side to play Maribor in the Champions League this week.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be hoping his players can move closer to qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League with a win in Maribor.

The Blues kept their impressive form in the Premier League going with a win against QPR and will be looking to back up the thrashing they handed Maribor in the last round of games at Stamford Bridge.

A win puts the Blues onto ten points, which is normally enough to see a side through to the last 16, where anything can happen as the knock out football begins.

Fingers crossed for Chelsea that Diego Costa isn’t suffering any consequences from his first start since the last international break against QPR because he’ll be a vital component of the Chelsea attack for this game.

Here’s the possible Chelsea side that Mourinho could go with to face Maribor.

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis, Schurrle, Matic, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard, Costa
