Reasons why Baba Rahman could start in Chelsea-PSG UCL clash

Blackstars defender Baba Rahman is set to play for Chelsea tonight in the club’s biggest game of the season when they host French side Paris Saint-Germain at Stamford Bridge in their Champions League last-16 second-leg.

Chealsea boss, Guus Hiddink will be without Kurt Zouma through injury while John Terry could also miss out after failing to fully recover from a hamstring injury that he sustained in the win over Newcastle United last month.

With Terry, still recovering from a hamstring problem and obviously not yet ready to join the team, Baba Rahman has the chance to start the game.

Branislav Ivanovic is likely going to be paired with Gary Cahil in centre back which means Cesar Azpilicueta would move to replace Ivanovic at right-back with Rahman stepping in left back.

Baba Rahman has been criticised by the British media  with the argument that he is not good enough for the Premier League yet, let alone to face Angel Di Maria in the Champions League; and that is a worry.

However the youngster proved his worth against the experienced Argentine by dominating him in the first leg of the clash in Paris.

The Blues have the chance to taste revenge on the French side for kicking them out of the competition last year while progressing to the quarter-finals in the process.

Chelsea will certainly be confident of getting a result on home soil as they have an away goal to their advantage, but PSG will not prove such easy opposition as they lead the tie 2-1 and have only been beaten twice all season.
