Drogba set for Blues return
Didier Drogba is set to be named on the bench when Chelsea take on Porto in the Champions League this evening.
Drogba has been missing with a chest injury he sustained against Manchester United but Carlo Ancelotti will put him on the bench in the hope of giving him some game time ahead of the big game with Arsenal this weekend.
Michael Essien will also take his place on the bench and will not be risked tonight after picking up a slight knee injury in the 4-0 win against Wolves at the weekend.
Elsewhere Deco, Michael Ballack and Ricardo Carvalho will all return to the starting eleven, while Yuri Zhirkov looks set to be preferred to Ashley Cole at left-back.
