Demba Ba is likely to return up front as Chelsea continue their pursuit of a top four place in the Barclays Premier League against Swansea on Sunday.

Ba is ineligible for European competition and is set to replace Fernando Torres, who started the Europa League semi-final first leg at Basle, while Eden Hazard is in line to face the Swans again after being sent off for kicking a ball boy during February's Capital One Cup semi-final between the teams.

Gary Cahill was an unused substitute in the win in Switzerland and could start in defence following his six-week absence with a knee injury, with Oriol Romeu (knee) the only definite absentee.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has a fully-fit squad to select from ahead of the clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Neil Taylor could again be on the bench after returning from an eight-month absence from the matchday squad against Southampton last weekend.

Michael Laudrup may once again look to move Michu into the centre-forward position after withdrawing Luke Moore at half-time against the Saints, while Wayne Routledge may also be in line for a recall.

Provisional squads

Chelsea: Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Cole, Bertrand, Luiz, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Mata, Mikel, Moses, Lampard, Hazard, Torres, Benayoun, Marin, Ake, Ferreira.

Swansea: Vorm, Bartley, Taylor, Flores, Tate, Williams, Britton, Michu, Hernandez, Dyer, Cornell, Lamah, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Davies.
