(REUTERS) - Jose Mourinho said on Monday that Paris St Germain would see a different Chelsea to the one they faced in last season's Champions League. The sides will meet in the Parc de Princes on Tuesday night.
Chelsea progressed to the competition's semi-finals on away goals at the expense of PSG in the quarter-finals last season but Mourinho said his side now had a different identity.
"We have some different players, we change a little bit the profile of our game, the identity of our game," the Portuguese manager told a news conference on the eve of the first leg of the round of 16 match.
"I don't want to say we are better or we're not better, I'm saying that we changed the profile of our game, so I believe that tomorrow Parc des Princes will see a different Chelsea than the last season."
Chelsea have added to their squad since they last played in Paris. Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy joined the London club in the summer with Juan Caudrado added in the January transfer window.
Chelsea go into the game firm favourites with Laurent Blanc's PSG depleted by injuries to Serge Aurier, Lucas Moura and Yohan Cabaye, while Blaise Matuidi, Thiago Motta and Marquinhos will be assessed later.
PSG will travel to London for the second leg of the tie on March 11.
