The England midfielder missed the 2-0 weekend win over Wolves with a virus but returned to the squad, along with Brazilian defenders Alex and Juliano Belletti who were both back after knee problems.

Russian Yury Zhirkov has a calf problem and did not travel with the squad, giving coach Carlo Ancelotti a problem at left-back for the match as Paulo Ferreira is not registered for the competition. One of Branislav Ivanovic or Belletti may have to fill in.

Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien, Deco (all knee) and Ashley Cole (ankle) also remain on the sidelines.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Carvalho, Terry, Alex, Bruma, Belletti, Mikel, Ballack, Lampard, J Cole, Malouda, Kakuta, Kalou, Sturridge, Anelka, Borini, Drogba.
