Mourinho suggested he is not prepared to risk Mark Schwarzer in Sunday's match as Petr Cech's dislocated shoulder means Schwarzer is Mourinho's No 1 for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg with Atletico Madrid.

"When the goalkeeper comes and these kind of strikers go there to hit the goalkeeper and dive for the penalty, it's even more dangerous," Mourinho said.

"He's one of our two goalkeepers. We don't have another one. We have only Schwarzer and Hilario.

"Schwarzer knows everything about the goal, about the small box and when you are choosing a second goalkeeper you need to choose somebody that is specially mentally ready to play in any moment."

Hilario, who signed in 2006 during Mourinho's first spell at Chelsea, memorably made his debut in a 1-0 defeat of Barcelona in the Champions League group stages.

"I remember when Hilario played against Barcelona in the Champions League," Mourinho said.

"He went into goal and he has to answer. I think it's a good thing to have a second or third goalkeeper with experience; somebody that goes into the game, doesn't matter which game, and feels comfortable."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
