thumbnail Hello,

Rafa Benitez continues with the attacking force of Hazard, Mata and Torres for the Blues' all-important European tie at Stamford Bridge, with Moses also keeping his place

Oriol Romeu replaces John Obi Mikel for Chelsea's crucial Champions League tie with Nordsjaelland, while Victor Moses keeps his place in the side.

David Luiz comes in for Cesar Azpilicueta in Rafa Benitez's only other change from the 3-1 Premier League loss against West Ham on Saturday.

Brazilian attacker Oscar therefore remains on the bench, with Eden Hazard and Juan Mata starting in support of Fernando Torres, with Branislav Ivanovic likely to shift to full back.

The Blues must win at Stamford bridge to have any chance of reaching the knock-out stages, but if Juventus beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the other Group E clash then the Premier League side are out regardless.

Their Danish opponents, on the other hand, are without Jores Okore, who has played every game in the competition so far, due to a thigh injury.

In their only other swap from their last game in the tournament, a 5-2 loss at home to Shakhtar, Morten Nordstrand is out and Mark Gundelach is in.

Chelsea:
 Cech; Ivanovic, David Luiz, Cahill, Cole; Ramires, Romeu; Hazard, Mata, Moses; Torres.

Subs: Turnbull, Oscar, Mikel, Ferreira, Marin, Azpilicueta, Bertrand.

Nordsjaelland: Hansen, Mtiliga, Runje, Parkhurst, Tičinovic, Adu, A.Christiansen, Gundelach, Lorentzen, John, Stokholm.

Subs: Raagaard Jensen, Kildentoft, Maxso, Issah, Beckmann, Laudrup, Lindberg
