Chelsea announce travelling squad for Galatasaray

Clive Brunskill

Jose Mourinho was sweating on the fitness of a trio of players going into Wednesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray -- John Obi Mikel, David Luiz and Oscar were all struggling with minor knocks. That situation has not been resolved one way or the other, but there's good news: All three are travelling with Chelsea to Istanbul today, which means they're all still in contention to feature in the midweek game.

That's particular happy where the midfield is concerned, since Chelsea are without Nemanja Matic and desperately need at least one of Mikel and David Luiz fit. And with Mohamed Salah also cup-tied, Oscar's inclusion in the squad gives Mourinho more options than just running a front line of Andre Schurrle, Willian and Eden Hazard.

The full list is as follows:

Goalkeepers

Petr Cech, Mark Schwarzer, Henrique Hilario.

Defenders

Branislav Ivanovic, Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta, Tomas Kalas.

Midfielders

Ramires, Frank Lampard, Oscar, John Obi Mikel, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard, Willian, Nathan Ake.

Forwards

Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o.
