Jose Mourinho’s side will look to continue in their winning ways when he and his men resume Champions League duties this week.

Here is how I think Jose Mourinho will line-up his side against Dynamo Kiev.

Goal keeper:

Despite the recent signing of Marco Amelia, Asmir Begovic is set to continue in goal in the absence of Thibaut Courtois.


Mourinho is expected to make some alterations to his defense line but is expected to start with John Terry and Gary Cahill at centre back. With Ivanovic Out injured, Jose Mourinho will most likely turn to Baba to fill in the Void left by the Serbian defender while Cesar Azpilicueta remains.


Mourinho has reportedly promised Chelsea youngster Ruben Loftus-cheek some run of games after the international break due to the poor form of Nemanja Matic. However, Matic is expected to return to the starting line-up alongside Cesc Fabregas.

Higher up the pitch, Eden Hazard will play alongside Willian who is in superb form but summer signing Pedro is expected to come in for Brazilian playmaker Oscar.


Diego  Costa returns from suspension and is expected to go back straight into the starting line up as Remy and Falcao failed to impress while Costa was away.


  Azpilicueta.            Cahill.           Terry.         Baba

  Matic.    Fabregas.

   Pedro.          Willian.         Hazard.
