CONFIRMED: Chelsea's 21-man squad to travel to Basel

Chelsea have confirmed their team which will travel for this week's upcoming Champions League fixture.

Chelsea have announced the team which will travel for this week's Champions League fixture via their website:

Cech, Schwarzer, Blackman, Ivanovic, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Torres, Mata, Oscar, Mikel, Schurrle, De Bruyne, Hazard, Ba, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Eto'o, Bertrand.

Notable is the return of Fernando Torres who missed the weekend fixture against West Ham. We have named him in our predicted XI and expect him to start.

David Luiz misses out with a knee injury while Michael Essien is unavailable as he was not registered for the competition.

Chelsea need just one point to qualify, but Jose Mourinho insists he wants all three, having been defeated 2-1 by the Swiss side at Stamford Bridge.
