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.
John Terry and Ashley Cole have both shaken off minor injuries to start for Chelsea as they take on Queens Park Rangers in a West London Derby at Loftus Road.
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.
Julio Cesar also makes his first start for Queens Park Rangers, while Esteban Granero is also in the starting XI and Alejandro Faurlin also makes his long-awaited return to the squad.
Queens Park Rangers: Cesar, Ferdinand, Park, Johnson, Wright-Phillips, Granero, Nelsen, Bosingwa, Da Silva, Zamora, Faurlin. Bench: Green, Cisse, Taarabt, Mackie, Onuoha, Dyer, Hoilett.
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Luiz, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Mikel, Hazard, Bertrand, Torres. Subs: Turnbull, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Romeu, Oscar, Moses, Sturridge.
