Carlo Ancelotti today revealed he would rest players for tomorrow night's Champions League last-16 second leg against FC Copenhagen.

The Blues have one foot in the quarter-finals after winning the first leg 2-0 three weeks ago and manager Ancelotti admitted he has one eye on Sunday's crucial Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City.



With David Luiz ineligible tomorrow, Alex (knee) is in line to make his return from long-term injury against City having trained with the first team today, while Yossi Benayoun is also nearing his eagerly-anticipated comeback.



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