Ashley Cole is suspended as Chelsea take on Basle in the Europa League semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, seeking to seal a place in the May 15 final in Amsterdam.

David Luiz, Ryan Bertrand, Ramires and John Obi Mikel are on yellow cards and may not be risked as the Blues take a 2-1 first-leg lead into the contest with the Swiss champions.

Ramires suffered a dead leg in last Sunday's defeat of Swansea and could be rested anyway, with Sunday's match at Manchester United in mind, while definite absentees are the ineligible Demba Ba and Oriol Romeu (knee).

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