Chelsea begins the defense of its Champions League title against Italian champion Juventus, with both sides leading their respective leagues after an impressive opening few weeks of the season.
John Terry and Ashley Cole (both ankle) have shaken off knocks that ruled them out of England encounters during the international break and will feature against the Bianconeri. Roberto Di Matteo should also welcome back Juan Mata following the Spaniard's absence from the 0-0 draw against QPR at the weekend.
Juventus will be without former Inter defender Lucio (ankle) who is set to miss the majority of the season.
Following his impressive goal contribution in the season thus far, Kwadwo Asamoah looks set to make the starting XI ahead of Sebastian Giovinco. Nicklas Bendtner will continue to wait on the sidelines following his loan move from Arsenal.
Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is yet to make his Juventus debut but could feature after being included in the Old Lady's squad.
