Jose Mourinho's selection problems are mounting after Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel were ruled out of the second leg through suspension while Samuel Eto'o and Eden Hazard also struggling with injuries.

"We had problems before the game, we had problems during the game, we lost four players during the game, two with injuries, two with yellow cards, but we will fight."
