Team News: John Terry on Chelsea bench

John Terry is named as a substitute for Chelsea's Champions League match with Shakhtar Donetsk at Stamford Bridge.

John Terry has been named among the substitutes for Chelsea's Champions League match with Shakhtar Donetsk at Stamford Bridge.

The captain is eligible for the Blues due to his recent four-game ban for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand only applying to domestic matches.

Meanwhile, there's no space in the squad for Ashley Cole due to injury.

Juan Mata is back in the side following a hamstring problem, while Fernando Torres starts in attack.
