Cole and Cahill set for Chelsea return

Defenders Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill trained today and could return to contention for Chelsea’s Barclays Premier League clash at Liverpool on Sunday.

Cole (hamstring) and Cahill (knee) have been absent in recent weeks and the Anfield match could come too soon for the duo, although Marko Marin (thigh) is available.

Former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is likely to rotate his squad once more, meaning ex-Reds striker Fernando Torres, captain John Terry and midfielder Frank Lampard may return to the bench.

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