Chelsea have had a very torrid time so far this season and ave been struggling to even make something out of the season as their new target is to even vie for fourth at least and no longer the Premiership title which they are currently defending.
These turmoil has been largely blamed on the fact that the Blues have missed the quality of some key players in the squad and most especially the qualities of their number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who was so fantastic last lseason that he relegated Petr Cech to the bench and became number one.
He has been out injured this season and the Blues have had to make do with their second choice goalkeeper Asmir Begovic who has not been good enough and has already conceded 23 goals in 13 matches so far in the English Premier League as against the 32 goals the team conceded in 38 matches last season.
Recent reports however claimed that Courtois was back in training and would soon be back in action and might even make the squad for their Champions League match against Maccabi but it has been revealed that both Thibaut Courtois and Radamel Falcao will not be making the trip to Israel to battle Maccabi Tel Aviv in their Champions League encounter which the team must win by all means.
Chelsea currently lie second in their group and a slip today could ruin the Blues.
It remains to be seen how Mourinho will fix the team today.
