Mikel To Captain, Willian & Fabregas OUT: Stoke City vs Chelsea Predicted Line-up

Today has been regarded by many as judgment day for Jose Mourinho whose fate as Chelsea manager might be decided in the Capital One Cup game against Stoke City.

Mourinho will lead his men to the Britannian stadium to face the Potters in Capital One round of 16 game. Unfortunately for Mourinho, only a win will be accepted if he is to regain the faith Chelsea fans have for him.

We expect the Portuguese tactician to  field-in a very strong squad so as to regain the team’s confidence ahead of Liverpool clash on Saturday.

However, we expect in-form Brazilian Midfielder Willian to be given a rest while fellow Brazilian Oscar to to start the game having missed West Ham game.

Here is how we expect Mourinho to line-up his squad with John Obi Mikel  leading the team.
