Predicted Chelsea line-up to play Maccabi Tel Aviv: Mourinho to make changes

UEFA Champions League Trophy

Here is how we predict Chelsea will line up for their Champions League match against Maccabi Tel Aviv this week:

To be played on Tuesday 24th November 2015 at 19:45. Venue: Bloomfield Stadium,

Odds: Maccabi T A 9/1, Draw 7/2, Chelsea 4/11

Chelsea travel to Israel this week to take on Maccabi Tel Aviv in their latest Champions League group match.

Jose Mourinho’s side are currently second in Group G with seven points from a possible 12, and with Tuesday’s opponents without a point to date the Blues will be quietly confident of taking another big step towards the knockout rounds.

Chelsea’s players earned a vital 1-0 victory against Norwich City on Saturday as they bid to put their awful domestic form behind them and start climbing up the table, but it is far too early to suggest they have turned the corner.

In early team news, the Blues are without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and striker Radamel Falcao but they have an otherwise clean bill of health.

As for Maccabi, they are definitely without Dejan Radonjic due to an ankle injury while Tal Ben Chaim is a doubt with a hamstring problem.
