The most lucrative and prestigious football competition begins tomorrow in Europe, the UEFA champions League and the Blues having come out as conquerors of England, are expected to be one of the major contenders.
However, the Premier League defending champions casted further doubt after a dismal performance over the weekend against Everton. They were outplayed, outclassed and outshone in every aspect and area of the game – they conceded three goals in a lacklustre show off that have left pundits and fans in a shock. This is Chelsea worst start to a season for over 20 years.
Meanwhile, they will line up on Wednesday against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League, there should be some tweak in the approach to the game and the line-up.
Some players within the rank of Chelsea have been shabby in their performance and they ought to be rested or relegated to the bench in other for the team to find their footing.
With a Premier League match in sight against arch rivals Arsenal, this is how we expected Mourinho to select the team for the Champions League match.
