Ashley Cole has been passed fit for Chelsea.

The England left-back missed Wednesday night's Champions League defeat at Bayer Leverkusen with an inflamed ankle but has shaken off the problem.

Long-term knee injury victim Michael Essien is therefore Chelsea's only absentee.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will be forced into making three changes through injury and suspension.

Midfielders Jamie O'Hara and Stephen Hunt will both serve one-match bans for incurring five bookings this season while right-back Richard Stearman is ruled out with a broken wrist.

Matt Jarvis and Adlene Guedioura are the natural replacements for O'Hara and Hunt while Ronald Zubar is poised to make his first appearance for nine months after injury in place of Stearman.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Alex, Cole, Luiz, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Malouda, Meireles, McEachran, Torres, Drogba, Kalou, Sturridge, Lukaku, Turnbull.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, De Vries, Zubar, Johnson, Berra, Ward, Hammill, Henry, Guedioura, Jarvis, Doyle, Doherty, Elokobi, Craddock, Milijas, Edwards, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Doherty.
