Brazilian defenders Alex and Juliano Belletti will also be on the plane with Chelsea as they have shaken off back and knee problems.

Russian Yuri Zhirkov has a calf problem and does not travel with the squad, giving boss Carlo Ancelotti a problem at left-back as Paulo Ferreira is not registered for the competition.

Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien, Deco (all knee) and Ashley Cole (ankle) also remain on the sidelines.
