Luiz, Ba, Moses and Mikel all back for Blues

David Luiz, Demba Ba, Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel are available for Chelsea’s FA Cup fourth-round replay with Brentford on Sunday after missing the Europa League win at Sparta Prague.

Luiz was suspended, Ba ineligible and Moses and Mikel rested, after winning the African Nations Cup with Nigeria, while John Terry and Ashley Cole were unused substitutes.

Cole had a cold and Terry was not risked after a setback in his recovery from a knee injury, but the captain is in line to return in defence against the Bees. Oriol Romeu (knee) is a long-term absentee.

Provisional squad: Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Cole, Luiz, Ramires, Lampard, Torres, Mata, Oscar, Mikel, Hazard, Ba, Ferreira, Marin, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Benayoun, Bertrand, Ake, Moses.
