After a disappointing outing against the Magpies over the weekend, the EPL defending champions Chelsea will take a long trip to Portugal tomorrow to battle former UEFA Champions League winner FC Porto right in front of their home fans.
It will be recalled that Mourinho was brought to lime light while with FC Porto when he led the Portuguese side to their second Champions League title in 2014 before moving to Chelsea during that summer.
Tomorrow’s match would definitely be an emotional game for Mourinho given that he still has great love for the team that gave him his first European medals and launched him to prominence.
However, we expect a high level of professionalism from the tactician and we expect him to feed a strong squad in other to restore his team fading confidence back, after starting the season on a disappointing note.
Some changes are bound to take place from the team that faced Newcastle United over the weekend. Brazilian midfielder Willian was very impressive when he came in as substitute for Matic and we expect him to be given the nod over Pedro on the right flank.
John Terry, Abdul Baba Rahman, Diego Costa and Ramires would be expected to come in for Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Loic Remy and Cesc Fabregas respectively.
Here is how we expect Mourinho to line-up his squad against his former team FC Porto.
