For twenty minutes, Chelsea looked the better team against Liverpool, although the Blues were gradually exposed throughout the match and the 3-1 defeat was deserved.

Since then, Cesc Fabregas and John Terry have both publicly claimed there is no revolt and that every player is behind Jose Mourinho, while the manager himself expects to see Chelsea improve over the next few weeks.

Perhaps we’ll start to see Chelsea show their true colours on Wednesday when Dynamo Kiev come to town, with the champions of England warm favourites to claim an important Champions League victory.

After collecting one point from their past two away matches, it is imperative that Chelsea get a win in this game, with a defeat leaving their hopes of Champions League qualification dangling by a thread.

Pedro is back in the squad along with Branislav Ivanovic, with Chelsea having drawn 0-0 in Ukraine a fortnight ago and they should have been awarded a late penalty.

Dynamo sit second in their domestic league and they will aim to keep things tight, having been unbeaten thus far in their Champions League group, although they might lack some ambition against a team with something to prove.

We think that Chelsea will produce a committed and spirited display. The result is clearly more imperative than the performance, with the players needing to knuckle down and get the victory that would put them back in control of their own destiny.

However, at such short prices, we can’t trust a team who have lost so many games this season and that includes Liverpool, Palace and Southampton coming away from the Bridge with wins.

Instead, we’re going for a low goal count taking place, with Dynamo more than happy to land a goalless draw.
