Chelsea need to overturn a 2 goal first-leg deficit against Napoli tonight if they are to reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.

A 2-0 win would see Roberto Di Matteo's side through, with Juan Mata's away goal at the Stadio San Paolo potentially vital to Chelsea's chances.

The Spaniard is to set to start in attack alongside Daniel Sturridge and Didier Drogba, while John Terry returns to partner Gary Cahill in defence.

Elsewhere, Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Carlos Tevez is in line to return for Manchester City when they take on Chelsea next week.
