Chelsea have captain John Terry back for the home clash after three weeks on the sidelines with a sciatic nerve problem in his right leg.

Midfielder Frank Lampard is still not ready to return after three months out with a groin and hernia problem while Alex (knee) and Yury Zhirkov (calf) are also sidelined.

Ghana midfielder Michael Essien is back after suspension and toe problems.

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is a doubt for the trip to London.

The centre-back sustained a knock in last week's defeat to West Brom and will be assessed before the game, which fellow defender Tony Hibbert will definitely miss because of a cut ankle picked up against the Baggies.

Captain Phil Neville has recovered from a sore knee and although midfielder Marouane Fellaini returns after suspension Mikel Arteta begins a three-match ban for his sending-off last weekend.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ferreira, Bosingwa, Terry, Ivanovic, Cole, Van Aanholt, Bruma, Ramires, Mikel, Essien, McEachran, Malouda, Drogba, Kalou, Kakuta, Sturridge.

Everton (from): Howard, Heitinga, Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Neville, Fellaini, Cahill, Pienaar, Beckford, Yakubu, Saha, Anichebe, Rodwell, Bilyaletdinov, Mucha, Baxter, Coleman.
