Chelsea Needs To Redeem Image Against FC Porto

Chelsea needs only a point in a top of the table clash with Portuguese champions, FC Porto in Wednesday’s UEFA champions’ league match at the Stamford Bridge to reach the knockout stage.

In the Premier League, the champions have struggled this year, already losing eight of their 15 top-flight matches this season to leave them 14; a situation which has left made Mourinho’s continuous stay at the club shaky.

‘The special one’ that he is, Mourinho believes that he is the right person to be at the helm of affairs at the club and there is no way Abramovich will sack him.

Porto are in good shape to ‘muddy’ the waters for Chelsea who look troubled at home but calm outside and share the top spot with their opponents, Porto on 10 points each with Chelsea ahead on better goals.

Mourinho could be lucky and have the needed stability they need with the coming back of Skipper John Terry in contention for their tie against Porto following an ankle injury.

The captain, 35, returned to training this week and brings back to the team what they missed in defense in their premier league games against Tottenham and Bournemouth. Brazilian midfielder, Ramires is also returning from his ankle injury.

Playing at the Stamford Bridge, the Blues can’t afford to falter and must go all out to gain the confidence of their teeming supporters.
