Chelsea play their second Champions League game of the season Tuesday evening, and will be looking for three very big points. Jose Mourinho and company were clearly disappointed in the result from the home draw against Schalke, and will look to make amends and take control of their group this evening.

With that in mind, Mourinho has selected a very strong lineup for our trip to Lisbon. Here's how Chelsea will line up this evening:

Chelsea XI: Thibaut Courtois, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Filipe Luis, Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard, Oscar, Andre Schurrle, Diego Costa

Chelsea Subs: Petr Cech, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, John Obi Mikel, Mohamed Salah, Willian, Loic Remy

Meanwhile, Sporting will line up with the following starting XI:

As always, keep things civil and please don't link or direct to illegal streams of the match. Have fun, and let's hope we're topping the group in three hours.
