Team news: Chelsea v Bolton

Chelsea star Juan Mata is fit to play against Bolton at Stamford Bridge tomorrow despite suffering a suspected broken finger in the 3-1 defeat to Napoli on Tuesday.

Defender Jose Bosingwa is out after being forced off early on against the Italians, with Ashley Cole likely to return at left-back.
