COLE AND CAHILL TRAVEL

Posted on: Wed 24 Apr 2013

Chelsea's squad has been boosted ahead the first leg of our Europa League semi-final by the return from injury of Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill.

The two defenders are on the plane that left London for Switzerland this morning (Wednesday).

Cole has recovered from a hamstring strain suffered in the home game against Manchester United on 1 April. Cahill underwent a minor knee operation on 30 March.

Oscar, who came off at Anfield on Sunday with a slight groin injury, is among the 19 who have travelled.

Rafael Benitez and one of the players will be talking to the media before the team train at Basel's St-Jakob Park stadium later today. Check this website and our @chelseafc Twitter feed for news from there.
