John Terry returns to Chelsea’s starting line up with Daniel Sturridge joining him as Dideir Drogba is suspended. Chelsea are resting Ashley Cole whilst Frank Lampard is still recovering from injury. Chelsea should brush aside Zilna who are the minnows of the Champions League whose stadium only has a capacity of 12,000.

Chelsea have been in great form winning all four of their opening Premier League games. Chelsea goalkeeper, Petr Cech has said that there is no chance of Chelsea underestimating MSK Zilna.

“Zilina had to go through qualification and the fact they have made it into the group stages shows their quality,” said Cech. “Underestimating any team in the Champions League can only damage you.

“Matches against Zilina will certainly have a special atmosphere. But at the moment I am most satisfied with our winning streak and with the fact we have been doing well as a team.”

MSK Zilina manager Pavel Hapal has stated that hi team will go out all for the win and not try to simply take a point from the game.

“It’s a great challenge for me and I’m really looking forward to it. On the other hand, we won’t sell ourselves short,” he said. “We want to show our supporters quality football and we’d like to get some points from our meeting with Chelsea.

“We respect our opponents; they’re a really big club. Chelsea are obviously superior to us, but football is about 11 players playing against 11 players and we want to walk off with our heads high after the match.”

Totesport are offering a free £25 bet on the game which for profit should be shoved on Chelsea to win.
