Chelsea travel to Schalke this evening as the Blues take on the manager who masterminded their famous Champions League final triumph in Munich two years ago.

Former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has said however that he is not motivated by revenge after he was sacked just a few months after winning the trophy that Roman Abramovich most sought.

While Chelsea are still unbeaten in all competitive matches so far this season, since Di Matteo took the helm at Schalke last month he has managed a 100% home record and if his German side beat Jose Mourinho's men, they will draw level on points with the Blues in Group G.

Chelsea will hope to contain Schalke starman Julian Draxler, a player both Arsenal and Manchester United have been keen to sign.

Chelsea will hope to recover from their disappointing draw at Stamford Bridge against Schalke earlier in the competition and will hope they can repeat their 3-0 away win in the tournament last year.
