Samuel Eto'o has proved his fitness to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and he starts for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain.

Fernando Torres, who was not chosen for the first leg in Paris last week, again has to settle for a place on the bench alongside Andre Schurrle, was acted as a false nine in the 3-1 defeat at the Parc des Princes.

Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are both ineligible - Oscar and Eden Hazard, who have recently attracted the attention of the Ligue 1 champions, both start for Mourinho's side.

Edinson Cavani is moved up front for the visitors after Zlatan Ibrahimovic was ruled out with a hamstring injury. Javier Pastore, the £37m striker who scored the third goal last week, takes place on the bench.
