Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he has a fully fit squad to choose from for the home match against Basel in the Champions League group stages. After confirming Frank Lampard and Oscar as starters for the match, Mourinho also said that there will be four players under the age of 22. This could mean that Marco van Ginkel could be one of the defensive midfielders alongside Lampard.
The Dutchman has not been used by Mourinho so far, but an European match could be a perfect bedding opportunity for the midfielder.
“No injuries at all. Everybody is fit.”– Mourinho
This is a possible line-up based on previous selections, injury status, and hints from the manager.

FC Basel’s possible line up:
Basel have run us closely when they met last season in the Europa League. This match is going to be very tough, but the quality and the home advantage should favour Chelsea. I’m going for a Chelsea 3-1 Basel score. What’s yours?
