Marseille v Chelsea


Chelsea captain John Terry is in the squad for their final Champions League group match at Marseille on Wednesday.
Terry had been sidelined for three weeks with a trapped nerve in his leg but came through Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton unscathed.
Ashley Cole and Nicolas Anelka have been rested while Frank Lampard (groin) and Yury Zhirkov (calf) remain injured.
Chelsea have already won Group F with five wins to date while Marseille have also qualified for the knockout stages.
Striker Didier Drogba will lead the line for Chelsea in the absence of Anelka and says he is looking forward to returning to the club he left in 2004.
Drogba spent only one season in Marseille but made a big impact, helping the club reach the Uefa Cup final.
"I am so overwhelmed by so many emotions I don't really know how to deal with this situation," said the Ivory Coast international.
Drogba has not been at his best recently, scoring only two goals for his club from open play since August.
Youngsters Jacopo Sala and Billy Clifford are also in the squad.
