Germany forward Andre Schurrle will be available for Chelsea's clash with Schalke in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Schurrle, 22, scored a hat-trick in Germany's 5-3 win over Sweden in the World Cup qualifiers, but missed the Blues' 4-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

The club said Schurrle trained on Monday, as did Cole who has been out since sustaining a rib injury against Norwich City on Oct. 6.

Yet Schuerrle's team-mate, Cole, won't be fit in time for the match on Tuesday.

"Jose Mourinho believes tomorrow's game has come just too soon for the left back and he has remained in the UK," Chelsea said on their website.

Currently, Schalke sit on top of Group E with two victories out of two possible, ahead of Basel and Chelsea, who have one victory each.

Steaua Bucharest are yet to win a point.
