Chelsea v Leverkusen preview

Andre Villas-Boas was still deciding on Monday whether to recall

Fernando Torres for Chelsea’s Champions League opener against Bayer

Leverkusen. The misfiring Torres lost his place in the side for

Saturday’s Premier League win at Sunderland, with Daniel Sturridge

coming in and scoring the decisive goal. Ramires is suspended for

Tuesday’s game at Stamford Bridge after being sent off in last

season’s defeat at Manchester United, Didier Drogba (head) is still

sidelined, Michael Essien (knee) is long-term injured, and Romelu

Lukaku and Ryan Bertrand are ineligible. Chelsea (from): Cech,

Ivanovic, Bosingwa, Ferreira, Terry, Luiz, Alex, Cole, Mikel,

Romeu, McEachran, Lampard, Meireles, Mata, Malouda, Torres, Anelka,

Sturridge, Kalou, Hilario.
