Blues boss Ancelotti revealed Didier Drogba would be on the bench, while number one Petr Cech, defender Alex (both calf) and full-back Jose Boswinga (knee) are all out.

Chelsea (from): Hilario, Turnbull, A Cole, Kalou, Drogba, Carvalho, Terry, Malouda, Lampard, Essien, Mikel, Benayoun, Anelka, Zhirkov, Kakuta, Sturridge, Ferreira, Bruma, Ivanovic.
