In the crucial champions league clash against Porto Chelsea’s captain comes back to the attack at a time when the team needs the champion the most.
John Terry is said to be fit to take on the Portuguese champions on Wednesday while Spaniard Cesc Fabregas is potentially going to be dropped by the Blues boss. Fabregas has been a sorry performer for Chelsea and has not lived up to his reputation at Stamford Bridge. If rumours are to be trusted, the ex-Catalan might get the axe after failing to show any intent or calibre with only two assists in the 15 games that he has played this season.
In the pathetic plight that Chelsea find themselves in, the Special one has turned to the club veteran to take the sinking ship forward, another chapter in the bitter sweet relationship between the Boss and the captain. Apart from Terry, another return from the injury bench will be Ramires who is likely to replace the out of form Fabregas
This clash between Porto and Chelsea will be a crucial one for the defending Premier League Champions. A win puts the Blues in commanding position, but a loss will see them topple into the Europa League making this campaign, even more, taxing with Thursday and Sunday fixtures.
Chelsea will enter the game on the backs of a home defeat to Bournemouth that has not helped Jose Mourinho’s cause this year. “Before the game I was still thinking we can finish in the top four.Everybody is losing points. Only Leicester are consistent in victories, they keep winning and winning. I’m really disappointed with the result, not so disappointed with the performance but very disappointed with the result” Mourinho told reporters after losing the Bournemouth fixture.
Whether the return of the captain will turn things around for the Champions or not, we will know only on Saturday but one thing is for sure; whether you love Chelsea or not you are feeling for the club! God help the club, god help Mou!
