A fortnight ago, a distinctly lackluster Chelsea side were thoroughly outclassed in Ukraine. This then is the opportunity to turn all that around and position the team for qualification into the Champions League knockout rounds.

This will not be easy; Chelsea will need to be at their best.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; Ryan Bertrand, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic; John Obi Mikel, Ramires; Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata; Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Oriol Romeu, Victor Moses, Marko Marin, Daniel Sturridge, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta

Shakhtar Donetsk starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Andriy Pyatov; Razvan Rat, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Darijo Srna; Tomas Hubschmann, Fernandinho; Willian, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alex Teixeira; Luiz Adriano

Substitutes from: Anton Kanibolotskiy, Vyacheslav Shevchuk, Dmytro Chygrynskiy, Ilsinho, Taras Stepanenko, Douglas Costa, Eduardo

That's right, John Terry's on the bench.

Do it.
