Fernando Torres will start Chelsea's final Barclays Premier League home game of the season against Newcastle tomorrow, manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed.

Torres was dropped for Sunday's defeat at Manchester United, which all but ended the champions' faint title hopes.

Jose Bosingwa will miss the final two matches of the campaign with a knee injury, while young full-back Ryan Bertrand (hamstring) will also sit out the Newcastle game.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ferreira, Terry, Luiz, Alex, Ivanovic, Zhirkov, Cole, Zhirkov, Mikel, Essien, Ramires, Lampard, Benayoun, Kalou, Malouda, Anelka, Torres, Drogba, Turnbull.
