After three wins in a row, Chelsea suffered yet another setback in the Premier League and once again dropped points against Newcastle United.
The Blues fought back from 2 goals down to earn a point versus the Magpies but they really should be beating a team in the relegation zone.
Jose Mourinho’s men will face Porto next in the Champions League and a win will take them a step closer to the knock out stage of the competition.
As far as the team news is concerned, first choice goalie Courtois remains on the sidelines with injury and young Brazilian playmaker Kenedy is doubtful for the game.
Other than that, the Blues have no injury concern. More importantly, superstar striker Diego Costa should return to the starting XI for the European game. Expect Willian to make his first start since returning from injury as well.
Here is Chelsea’s probable starting XI vs Porto.
