Fernando Torres is likely to start up front for Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Paris St Germain in the continued absence of Samuel Eto'o.

Eto'o (hamstring) and Ashley Cole (knee) did not travel to the French capital, with Dutch youngster Nathan Ake providing cover at left-back for Cesar Azpilicueta, who became a father on Monday.

Ramires is free to play despite a game remaining of his domestic suspension, but Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are ineligible having played for Benfica and Basle, respectively, earlier in the competition.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Ramires, Lampard, Torres, Oscar, Mikel, Schurrle, Hazard, Ba, Willian, Schwarzer, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Kalas, Hilario, Ake.
