Laurent Blanc: It's not just Hazard and Ibrahimovic


Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc says tomorrow's Champions League game against Chelsea is not just about star players Eden Hazard and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Two of Europe's most entertaining players will come face to face at the Parc des Princes but the Frenchman expects all his players to be ready for a tough game against Jose Mourinho's men.

"Knowing [Jose] Mourinho a little bit I think he'll try to bring the heat up on the pitch if you see what I mean, so our players need to remain cool-headed, not react and keep calm," Blanc said in his post-match press conference.

"Both coaches will expect a lot from their team and their team leaders.

"The big leaders need to bring their teams up in big games. Ibra is one of them and I hope he can be decisive and efficient up front.

"[But] I expect a lot from Ibra as I expect a lot from all of my players.

"Tomorrow the right equation is to show a strong will to score and to defend well, and I think it will be the same for Mourinho.

"He will expect a lot from [Eden] Hazard, but there will be many quality players who can make the difference.

"We can't allow yellow cards and suspensions because we don't have many players in the squad."
