Chelsea squad members train ahead of their Champions League clash against NK Maribor.Reuters

Chelsea travel to Slovenia to take on NK Maribor in their fourth Group G fixture of the Champions League at the Ljudski vrt.

The Blues have been playing much better than their English counterparts in the Champions League as they are currently on the top of their group with seven points following two wins and a draw in their opening three fixtures.

Apart from the Champions League, they are also doing well in other competitions as they have progressed to the fifth round of the Capital One Cup and are currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League.

The summer arrivals of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas from Atletico Madrid and Barcelona respectively has been one of the main reasons behind Blues' success as both the players have scored or created some match-winning goals for the West London club this season.

Getting back to the Champions League, the Blues will be hoping to continue their good form against Maribor, whom they crushed 6-0 in the reverse fixture two weeks ago at Stamford Bridge.

Considering their dominance against the Slovenian side in the reverse fixture, Chelsea are expected cruise at Maribor, but Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists that his side will not be taking them lightly on Wednesday.

"The 6-0 win against Maribor in the first match was a fake situation. It was the only match where we played like 'one chance, one goal'. We're not a team who score many goals from a few chances, but against Maribor everything went into the net," the Portuguese told UEFA's official website.

 "I know Maribor are a very good team. I watched their matches against Sporting and Schalke and also some in the Slovenian league. They play offensively and are especially dangerous at home. I have to convince my players that in the first match everything went our way."

Meanwhile, Maribor will be hoping to at least record a draw in this fixture at home so they can salvage some pride after their drubbing at Stamford Bridge.

Although the Slovenian's chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League are slim, they will be aiming for a third-place finish ahead of Sporting Lisbon in Group G.

Maribor boss Ante Šimundža despite admitting that his team is focusing on improving their performances in the Slovenian PrvaLiga, the 43-year-old manager insists that he will field his strongest side against the Blues on Wednesday.

"Our priority is the Slovenian league, where we are not playing the way we want at the moment, but Maribor will always put out our best squad for the Champions League, so you can expect us to do our best here also," said Šimundža, according to UEFA's official website.

However, he admits that Chelsea are a very strong side and will be very difficult to contain despite them playing away from home.

"In London, Chelsea played superbly and were better in every department. I am sure that Chelsea will not hold off and I know José Mourinho wants all three points here in Maribor," he added.

Still Šimundža insists that his side will be looking to take maximum points on Wednesday.

"For me, all that matters is that we are competitive, that we make the most of our chances and take as many points as possible."

Chelsea: Čech; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Cahill, Filipe Luis; Matić, Fabregas, Ramires, Salah, Schürrle; Drogba.
