Ramires ready for comeback

Ramires is expected to return to the Chelsea squad for Sunday’s Barclays Premier League game at Everton.

The Brazilian midfielder missed the St Stephen's Day win at Norwich with a slight knee injury and interim manager Rafael Benitez was confident he would be fit for the trip to Goodison Park.

Sunday’s game is set to come too soon for defender John Terry (knee), while striker Daniel Sturridge could be omitted from the squad again ahead of his proposed move to Liverpool.

Provisional squad: Cech, Azpilicueta, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Moses, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Turnbull.
