John Terry will miss the match against Newcastle but the pain he has suffered from the nerve problem in his leg is subsiding and he should be fit to return next weekend.

Frank Lampard, who has suffered a recurring groin problem, has also begun to train with the squad but is not ready for selection.

Yuri Zhirkov could also be back in a week's time while Michael Essien is suspended.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Ferreira, Bosingwa, Alex, Ivanovic, Cole, Ramires, Sturridge, Mikel, Malouda, Anelka, Drogba, Kalou. Turnbull, Van Aanholt, Bruma, Kakuta, McEachran.
