Frank Lampard was declared fit to fly out with Chelsea today ahead of the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against Inter Milan at the San Siro.

The England midfielder missed the weekend win over Wolves with a virus but returned to the squad, along with Brazilian defenders Alex and Juliano Belletti who were both back after knee problems.

Russian Yury Zhirkov has a calf problem and did not travel with the squad, giving coach Carlo Ancelotti a problem at left-back for tomorrow’s match as Paulo Ferreira is not registered for the competition.

Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien, Deco (all knee) and Ashley Cole (ankle) also remain on the sidelines.

Squad: Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Carvalho, Terry, Alex, Bruma, Belletti, Mikel, Ballack, Lampard, J Cole, Malouda, Kakuta, Kalou, Sturridge, Anelka, Borini, Drogba.
