Hey, it's former Chelsea favorite Joey Cole!

Updated Žilina information - thank you, Telegraph!

Quote: "You can't expect us to focus just on defence. That would be a silly thing to do. We have to be brave to succeed against Chelsea. We'll certainly try to score at least a goal and do all we can to get a good result." -Zilina manager Pavel Hapal

Team: Cech, Ivanovic, Alex, Terry, Zhirkov, Essien, Mikel, Benayoun, Sturridge, Anelka, Malouda. Subs: Turnbull, Ramires, Ferreira, Kalou, Van Aanholt, Kakuta, McEachran.

"Zilina are on paper the weakest team in the group and so should present only intermittent trouble in theory, but, as Manchester United learned to their cost, even teams from football’s farthest backwaters should not be underestimated."
-From the Telegraph liveblog. Should we expect Steve Wilson to receive a battering over that? Doubt it.
