Possible Chelsea Starting XI to face Steaua Bucharest

Jose Mourinho has to find the best possible eleven against Steaua Bucharest tonight as Chelsea have to win this match in order to progress to the knock out rounds of the Champions League.


The Special One has to take few key decisions for this game. First, what should be his central defensive combination for this game? Should he try with Luiz and Cahill, continue with Terry and Luiz (against Spurs) or should he try with Terry and Cahill?

In the midfield – should be start with Ramires and Lampard, Mikel and Lampard or Mikel and Ramires. Despite the fact that Chelsea are looking to win this game, Mourinho would be looking to stay as compact as possible hence Mikel should be used along with either Lampard or Ramires.

The attacking trio would consist of Oscar, Juan Mata and Andre Schurrle. Mourinho started with Willian in the first Champions League game but away from home in this crucial tie, the Portuguese will rather start with the German.

Fernando Torres gave the impression of returning back to his old self last match and the Spaniard will be looking to make best use of his 90 minutes before serving four match ban, possibly.
