Milan - After winning the English League Cup to end a trophy drought of nearly three years, Jose Mourinho now has his sights set on joining Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley as the only managers to win the Champions League or European Cup three times.

Chelsea's last-16 tie is delicately poised following a 1-1 draw at Paris Saint-Germain, with Mourinho's men having the advantage of the away goal.

However, PSG has only failed to score once in 16 matches in 2015 and is on a 14-match unbeaten run.

Since the 1-1 draw in the first leg, Chelsea has strengthened its position at the top of the Premier League and won the English League Cup, setting up the prospect of a domestic double.

Adding the Champions League title to the haul is the hardest job for Jose Mourinho, but he has already done it twice and Branislav Ivanovic's away goal in Paris three weeks ago has given Chelsea the advantage heading into the second leg.

Chelsea has midfield anchorman Nemanja Matic back from a ban, he should shrug off an ankle injury, and the squad was able to rest this weekend, having already been eliminated from the FA Cup.
