Jose Mourinho: We cannot defend the 1-1 for the full 90 minutes


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says the Blues will approach tomorrow's Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain with the same mentality of the first leg.

The Blues, who have no fresh injury concerns, are favourites to make it through to the next stage of the competition and the Portuguese says the game is like a final for his team.

"Everybody is ready except [John Obi] Mikel after his little surgery but even he is doing well in his recovery," Mourinho told Chelsea TV.

"Tomorrow is a real final because everything is decide tomorrow.

"[The game plan will be] no different [than the match in Paris].

"We went to Paris to win, we were not able to do that because for some periods of the game Paris put some pressure on us, they were very aggressive [and] the referee allowed them to be aggressive.

"We were trying to go to the attack but foul after foul they stopped us a lot.

"You go away, you score goals and sometimes you think that you did the away job and you lose a little bit of ambition in your game.

"But now at home I don't think we can defend the 1-1 result for the 90 minutes so we'll try to win."
