Chelsea continue the defence of their Champions League trophy tonight as they face a tough away trip to Shakhtar Donetsk.
Captain John Terry returns after missing Saturday’s 4-2 win over Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Terry is currently serving a four-game ban for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand but is available for European fixtures so takes his place alongside David Luiz at the heart of Chelsea back four.
Frank Lampard also returns after only being fit enough for a place on the bench at the weekend. Hazard makes way. Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Pyatov, Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Rat, Hubschman, Fernandinho, Alex Teixeira, Mkhitaryan, Willian, Luiz Adriano
Cech, Ivanovic, D Luiz, Terry, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; Ramires, Oscar, Mata; Torres
SUBS: Turnbull, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Romeu, Hazard, Sturridge.
