MATCH PREVIEW : Genk v Chelsea Uefa Champions League 2012 -01 November-2011,20:45 CET.Genk manager Mario Been has no fresh injury worries following his side’s pulsating nine-goal thriller with Brugge at the weekend, which they won 5-4. However, the Belgian side is still without Jeroen Simaeys.
Raul Meireles looks set to deputize for Ramires, after the Portuguese midfielder was rested for much of the weekend’s game against Arsenal. Michael Essien remains sidelined with a knee injury.
Didier Drogba will be available for selection again after serving one game of his three match ban against the Gunners, following his sending off for a poorly timed lunge at Adel Taarabt. However, Fernando Torres is likely to keep his place in the side.

I have positive feelings about tomorrow's game, I am a coach who always thinks positive but we know we're playing against great opponents in Chelsea. In any football game you get chances and tomorrow we will have chances to score and one could go in. "We just have to start better than the game in London where after ten minutes we were two goals down and where we were too timid." We always played the ball backwards, we have to change that mentality.

We saw all of Chelsea's qualities at Stamford Bridge. After Saturday's game in the Belgian league which we won 5-4 I think the feeling is very positive in the team so let's hope we can take this feeling with us into tomorrow's game. I have a lot of confidence in my team and tomorrow we have to do better than we did at Chelsea. A draw or a win for us would be a great result and it would be a surprise.

For me there are no easy games, especially not in the Champions League and in particular after Genk's tremendous result at Brugge in the Belgian League. Pudil is suspended and is an important player for them but their recovery of Nadson is also important.

I had experience last year with Porto here in Genk in the play-off of the Europa League – we had a difficult time [albeit Porto won 3-0]. A lot of emotions come from the stands and the environment here is difficult and it can cause problems.

We have analysed the [5-3 loss to Arsenal FC] and there were quick counter-attacks and goals suffered in little defensive blocks and it has nothing to do with playing a high line or not. It is our philosophy and we will focus on getting it right. There is always a learning curve when you are winning or losing and our progress was stopped disastrously in the last week with two defeats in the league, but it doesn't mean the philosophy is wrong and we are not on the right track. It doesn't mean our castle fell down but we have to recover from a shake we have received.

Chelsea Projected Lineup (4-3-3): Cech; Cole, Luiz, Alex, Ivanovic; Meireles, Malouda, McEachran; Mata, Torres, Anelka

Racing Genk Projected Lineup (4-4-2): Koteles; Pudil, Tozser, Masuero, Ngongca; De Bruyne, Vanden Borre, Buffel, Hyland; Vossen, Kennedy
