After losing against Crystal Palace and damaging their chances of winning the premier league, Chelsea’s Champions League chances are very low as PSG handed them a heavy defeat in the first leg.
The French giants won 3-1 and Blues now have a mountain to climb in the second leg at Stamford Brdige.
Before that, Chelsea need to regroup and bounce back this weekend in the premier league against Stoke.
The Potters defeated them earlier this season at Brittania Stadium thanks to wonder goal scored by Liverpool loanee Assaidi in injury time.
Liverpool 2 points ahead and Manchester City with games in hand, Chelsea cannot afford to drop points or else they can forget about winning the premier league this season.
As far as team news is concerned, Mourinho must start Ba as the lone striker as Torres has been utter crap lately.
Moreover, Schurrle has never impressed for Blues while playing as a lone central forward. Winter signing Matic will come back and Mourinho should also start Mohamed Salah.
Here is Chelsea’s probable Starting XI vs Stoke.
