Chelsea have just announced the 20-man squad which has traveled to Portugal to face Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday, 18 of whom will be named to the matchday squad. The 20 players are as follows:

Petr Cech, Thibaut Courtois, Mitchell Beeney, Branislav Ivanovic, Filipe Luis, Cesc Fabregas, Kurt Zouma, Nathan Ake, Oscar, Eden Hazard, John Obi Mikel, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah, Loic Remy, Diego Costa, Nemanja Matic, Willian, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta

So no Ramires or Didier Drogba in the squad for tomorrow, and taking Beeney along was likely nothing but an emergency option if the need arose. That likely leaves one of Ake, Zouma, or Mohamed Salah as the odd man out on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Drogba had the following message for his teammates via Twitter:

Get well soon Didier, we all know how much you love scoring against Arsenal.
