The Portuguese coach hopes his stadium ban will inspire his players to victory at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League this weekend

Chelsea travel to Stoke City on Saturday without banned manager Jose Mourinho, who hopes his absence will not prevent the players from picking up a much-needed victory.

Stoke City         v             Chelsea
                                                              17:30 • Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
                                                                                        Referee: A. Taylor

The Premier League champions had a crucial win in Europe against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday to lighten the mood around Stamford Bridge, but that does not help their precarious predicament domestically.

Chelsea sit 15th in the table with just 11 points from as many outings and are already well off the pace of joint-leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.

Six league defeats already matches Mourinho's worst return in his career and Chelsea face a trip to the Britannia Stadium, having already faltered there in last week's League Cup penalty-shootout elimination.

As Mourinho serves a one-game stadium ban after being dismissed at West Ham recently, the Portuguese hopes his players can motivate themselves out of his presence.

"I think they will know I am with them," he said, when asked how his squad might cope.

"They know I am going to prepare the team until the moment they go to the game.
