thumbnail Hello,

The Blues boss says the striker has a chance of featuring against the French champions and feels his team need their goalscorers if they are to have any chance of progressing

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits he may risk Samuel Eto’o against Paris Saint-Germain as the Blues prepare for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

The striker has not featured for Chelsea since hobbling off early on in the 6-0 win over Arsenal, but is the Blues' joint second highest scorer this season with 11 goals.

Mourinho says he wanted the Cameroonian to feature in the win over Stoke City at Saturday, but he was not ready, but feels he could still feature against the Frenc champions. 

When asked if he could be fit, he told reporters: "Let's see, let's see.

"I wanted [Samuel] Eto'o to be on the bench on Saturday and play 15 or 20 minutes but he was not fit enough.

"He did not train with the team on Sunday, so we have to see.

"Maybe I will pick him. But to risk a player, you need to have minimum conditions to take that risk.

"If you think he's going to be out after 10 minutes of the game, you can't take that risk. If there is a minimum of conditions of risk, then yes."

Chelsea go into the game 3-1 down after an eventful first leg in the French capital, and Mourinho hinted at an attacking approach for his team.  

“We need to score goals. If we don't score a minimum of two goals, we are out. We know that,” he added.

"If we can have everybody available who can give us a chance to score goals, then let's do that."
