Chelsea duo Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill are expected to feature in tomorrow's Europa League semi-final against Basel after overcoming their respective injuries.

Chelsea defenders Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill will be available for tomorrow evening's Europa League semi-final first leg against Basel.

Cole has been struggling with a hamstring strain, while centre-back Cahill was forced to undergo minor knee surgery in a bid to clear up a complaint.

The pair could feature in the first leg in Switzerland as both were part of the travelling squad that boarded the plane in London today.

Meanwhile, Oscar, who was pulled off with a groin injury during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, has been declared fit for the trip.
