Chelsea look to turn around fortunes with Champions League win


Chelsea are without striker Radamel Falcao for their opening Champions League match at home to Maccabi Tel Aviv. The Colombian has a minor injury which is not expected to sideline him beyond tonight's game. Asmir Begovic will deputise for Thibaut Courtois in goal, while defender Papy Djilobodji has not been included in the Blues' Champions League squad. Elsewhere, Arsenal are at Dinamo Zagreb without Per Mertesacker, while Roma host Barcelona and Bayern Munich travel to Olympiakos.
