Chelsea may be without Jose Bosingwa for their make-or-break Champions League clash with Valencia.

The right-back missed training on Monday morning with an adductor strain, although he is unlikely to be in the side even if fit after losing his place to Branislav Ivanovic.

Midfielder Josh McEachran is still out with an ankle injury, while Michael Essien is expected to return from knee surgery early next year.

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