CARLO Ancelotti will have one eye on Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester city when he makes his selection for tomorrow's Champions League clash with Copenhagen.
The Italian is buoyed by the fact he has everybody back from injury this week, although Alex – out since November with a knee injury – will not be involved until the weekend and Yossi Benayoun is only just resuming full training after tearing an Achilles tendon in September.
Branislav Ivanovic is likely to start alongside John Terry in central defence in the absence of the ineligible David Luiz, while the Chelsea boss has hinted Fernando Torres may not start tomorrow's European tie at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are looking to reach the quarter-finals with the minimum of fuss and with a 2-0 lead from the first leg in Denmark, should only have complacency to worry about.
“It's only the second half of this round,” Ancelotti said.
“We did well in the first half and I think we have to pay the same attention in the second half.
“We will try to do what we did in the last game – to play with focus, good pressure and quick transition.
“For us it will be very important to move on to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League and we have to pay a lot of attention because Copenhagen are a good team, with good organisation.
“I hope that everything will be OK. We have used this time well to prepare the team – to stay focused, to improve our condition and our confidence and in the training everything was Ok.”
The Blues boss added: “I want to rotate in this game. I didn't choose the team for tomorrow yet, but I want to use rotation because we have all the players fit and I want to use all the players to prepare well for these two games – against Copenhagen and against Man City.
“It's a fantastic moment for us to have all the players fit and I want to maintain a good motivation for everyone because we need everyone in the last games of the Premier League and the Champions League .
“Our confidence now after the victories against Copenhagen, Man United and Blackpool is really better and we want to maintain this and if it's possible, to improve.”
