Sporting take on Chelsea on Tuesday 30th September, 2014, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports.

An away day in Lisbon will be an interesting experience for former Porto manager Jose Mourinho, although Mr Special has his own aura that probably transcends mere local rivalries and national derbies these days. Chelsea should get at least a point from this game, although the hamstring issues Diego Costa is enduring could make it a tough task for them to convert chances into goals.

We might see the squad rotated for this game, but early qualification would be optimal and Mourinho is never one to aim for second-best, so he’ll do all he can to maximise his hopes of taking the win.
