Share

Chelsea take on French Champions Paris Saint Germain in the second leg of the quarter finals of the Champions League at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night as the Blues try to claw back from a 3-1 loss inflicted on them a week ago at Paris.

hazard Possible Chelsea Starting XI Against PSG

Ezequiel Lavezzi and Javier Pastore both hit the net at Parc De Princes and an unfortunate own goal from David Luiz gives Laurent Blanc’s side the definite edge to progress through to the semi finals of Europe’s elite Club competition. However, Jose Mourinho will try to plot one of the greatest comebacks for the home side in a bid to save their faltering season.

Team News: Chelsea’s back line remains unchanged with but Nemanja Matic ineligible to feature and Ramires suspended, David Luiz and Frank Lampard are expect to hold fort in midfield.

The triumvirate of Oscar, Willian and Eden Hazard will have to play out of their skin to make sure their team have any chances of qualifying. Mourinho opted for a false nine in Paris with Andre Schurrle given the license to play as the farthest man forward.

However, the German’s inability to carve out spaces for himself proved pivotal to Chelsea’s inability to break down a dogged PSG defense. With Samuel Eto’o out injured, the onus would be on Fernando Torres to lead the line, the Spaniard who loves the grandest of stages to make an impact.

Prediction: 1-1; PSG are more than well placed to advance to the semis with a two goal cushion, but Chelsea would take significant motivation when they beat Napoli by 3-0 in  the similar stages of the competition, they won a couple of years ago. It is expected to be a tight affair as Chelsea will score but PSG too, are strong enough to amass a strike of their own.

  1. Play oscar and lampard as holding mildfielder and then play HAZARD, WILLIAN AND ANDY SCHURREL attacking. Pls leave DAVID LUIZ out of this game.

  2. if we realy want to get to the semi-finals. Then luiz shud b left out lest he would score goals for PSG

  3. play lampard and oscar at midfield,then hazard william schurrle as the attacker and demba ba as striker

  4. Mourinho have a game plain so lets wait and see

  5. Play LUIZ and VAN GINKEL/MIKEL at DM and Hazard, Willian, Shurrle and Oscar upfront!

  10. play lampard and oscar at the midfield,willian hazard and shurrle as attack mids and play demba ba as striker

  11. use eto haz shurle oscar lampard

  12. each time u play torres we always lose pls play the best today and GOD wil be there 4 us

  13. chelsea who win & qualify if our strikers all pass fit, I think 4 goals can come from defender, attacker, winger & striker,

  14. Since we need two goals, we need to play one holding midfielder that is Obi Mikel, oscar, willian,hazard, shurller and torres trust me we shall torment PSG.

  15. jose will do de job.

  16. Chelsea is qualify must. midfild lampard luiz, on attacking willian Oscar hazard eto’o

  17. Jose will continue to get disappointed in most results till he leave favouritesm and sentiment out of his team selection. The earlier hee gets Mikel back to the starting line-up, the better for all of us.

  18. Cech, iva, azpliq, cahil,terry,mikel, lamp,willian,oscar,hazard,Eto’o

  19. I want jose mou to drop david luiz on bench today. If mikel and frank is fit let’s introduce d 2 of them in today’s match. And let’s see the result

  20. if the blues really wants to win this match this the players that they must use. Cech, terry, cahil, ivanovic, apiliqueta, lampard, oscar, willian, hazard,shurlle and eto’o. I knw that blues will win. Up jose.

  21. Mourinho said he will win so I never doubt my boss. He is d master of d game!!! Let’s watch his game plan!!!! Dis is Stamford bridge okay peeps relax!!! I dream we playing man utd semi final

  22. Chelsea we can do we are de blues mourinho u are de best, eden hazard will make paris saint german defenders looks like spectator.i trust u guys u can do it remember napoli i wish all chelsea players good lucky

  23. jose, wil do the job, though its a dificult job

  24. Much as we need to attack, we also need to strengthen our defence as PSG plays with 3 attackers. So i strongly recommend Luiz n Lampard in midfield while oscar start just in front of them. Torres should lead the attack while all others remain as usual: Cech; Aspilicueta,Cahill,Terry, Ivanovic; Lampard, Luiz; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Torres. Gud lucks #CFC

  25. I HATE TALKING LIKE AM A TRAINED COACH WHEN I HAPPEN TO BE A MERE FAN,JOSE KNOWS THE BEST APPROACH ,WHO EVER HE PLAYS,OR SELECTED HE KNOWS THE IDEAL PERSON.

  26. I’d like to see Demba Ba upfront with Hazard and Oscar passing to him. Unlike Eto’o and Torres he will patrols the final third of the opponent versus his counterparts who tend to drift wide and invade Hazard and the like of William playing space. To get anything from this game Chelsea needs to be direct and attack PSG that’s the best way to do it in my opinion.

  27. Luiz nd lampard shuould be in the holding midfield in order to resist the attack of PSG. And WIZACAR in de attackin midfield.

  28. i believe in the boys n jose ll do the work..luiz must not start..etoo must start with torres…chelsea all the way.come on chelsea where ever they maybe

  29. hmm!my mind is teling me dat bluz wil win psg bt wil nt qualify 4 semis.i wil be bak.gud luk “talkative mourinho”

  30. I thinks its better to play mikel and lampard in the holding and central midfield role respectively…. Hazard, willian,schurrle… Torres/Ba (what choice do we have)

  31. The truth of the matter is that Mourinho is not a good coach. Even though he is,pride and arrogance has made the bad one not whatever he calls himself. For me no Chelsea no football on earth but,I hate Mourinho’s style.

  32. We will win as God guard us through and qualify for the semi final.
