Sheva back in starting line-up

All will expect him to score

Andriy Shevchenko will return to the starting line-up for tonight`s Carling Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge against Wycombe Wanderers, VillaMad reports.

The Ukraine striker got 17 minutes action in the lamentable display at Anfield on Saturday.

But now, fully fit, he is comes back into the side and all will expect him to score and propel the Blues to the final at the Millennium Stadium next month.

With the score standing at 1-1, the Blues should win comfortably, but they will again be without John Terry.

Petr Cech should again play. He needs more matches ahead of the vital Premiership game against Blackburn Rovers at the end of the month.

A run out against Nottingham Forest on Sunday in the FA Cup will be ideal final preparation.

But Jose Mourinho may revert to his selection for the Carling Cup and opt for Carlo Cudicini - who is also in need of matches.

At right back it should be Geremi - who has never let the Blues down. Centre-back could see Ricardo Carvalho back if only because he missed out on Saturday`s match through injury.

Surely Mourinho won`t want to partner Michael Essien with Paulo Ferrieria again.

Left back could see Ashley Cole play as Wayne Bridge may be used as a left-sided midfielder.

The absence of Arjen Robben and Joe Cole through injury will see Shaun Wright-Phillips return to the flanks.

Frank Lampard will be rested so John Mikel or Michael Ballack will play alongside Claude Makelele.

Salomon Kalou will continue up front with Sheva.

On the bench, well it`s bring on the kids time again.
