John Terry and Ashley Cole both shake off injuries to start for Chelsea, while QPR start Julio Cesar, Esteban Granero, and welcome Alejandro Faurlin back from injury.
Both Terry and Cole had missed England's 1-1 draw against Ukraine, but start a game that will likely be overshadowed by the ongoing case between John Terry and Anton Ferdinand over allegations that the Chelsea captain racially abused the R's defender. There has been speculation that Ferdinand will refuse to shake Terry's hand in the pre-match ritual.
