Ivanovic RETURNS & Hazard AXED: Chelsea vs Dynamo Kiev Predicted Line-up

After a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last weekend, EPL defending champions Chelsea will today welcome Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev for UEFA Champions’ League group G match.

Chelsea are currently on third position at the table with four points and a win today will take give them hope of qualifying for the knock-out stage.

Summer signing Radamel Falcao is ruled out from the match after suffering injury while the duo of Pedro Rodriguez and Branislav Ivanovic will be expected to be given a start after training with the team this morning.

Midfield partner in Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic would both also be expected in the starting line-up after starting from the bench in weekend’s game.

Star player Eden Hazard was the flop of last weekend defeat to Liverpool and as a result, we expect Mourinho to start him from the bench. Young French star Kurt Zouma is expected to pair with skipper John Terry at the centre of defence.

Here is how we expect the under-fire boss Jose Mourinho to line-up his squad, if he is to secure the three maximum points needed to qualify for next round of 16.
