Champions League holders entertain Juventus at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea captain John Terry is expected to be fit as the Blues start the defence of their Champions League crown with a Group E game against Juventus.
Terry picked up a knee injury in the latter stages of last Saturday’s 0-0 draw at QPR but came through a training session on Tuesday.
Defensive midfielder John Obi Mikel should also be available despite a slight back injury.
Playmaker Juan Mata is set to return after sitting out the QPR match.
Juventus have made no changes to their 23-man squad from the team that beat Genoa 3-1 on Sunday.
Emanuele Giaccherini, Mirko Vucinic and Kwadwo Asamoah scored as Juventus fought back to continue their 42-game unbeaten run.
Defender Lucio was an unused substitute as he continues to recover from an ankle complaint. (BBC Sport)
