Defender Cole sat out the 4-0 victory against Bolton due to a knee problem, while goalkeeper Hilario was absent after suffering a head injury during last week's Carling Cup game against the same opponents.

Striker Didier Drogba, amid speculation he might miss the game due to a minor leg injury picked up at the weekend, is also fit and could make his first Champions League appearance this season after serving his three-match ban.

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti is still without three of his players for the Group D game though, with Jose Bosingwa (knee), John Mikel Obi (ankle) and Yury Zhirkov (knee) still absent.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Hilario, Turnbull, A Cole, Belletti, Terry, Carvalho, Alex, Ivanovic, Ferreira, Deco, Ballack, Malouda, Sturridge, Kalou, J Cole, Essien, Lampard, Drogba, Bruma, Borini, Matic, Anelka.
