Capello: Chelsea's Terry, Lampard will be too strong for Greeks

England boss Fabio Capello says his stars Frank Lampard and John Terry will inspire Chelsea to a Champions League victory over Olympiacos this week.

Capello believes the disappointment of their Carling Cup Final defeat will steel Chelsea to ensure they make progress on Wednesday night against Olympiakos after a 0-0 draw in Athens in the first leg.

Capello said: "After losing at Wembley, I expect in this game it will be extremely difficult for Olympiakos to get a result. I don't think Chelsea have any injuries and they are all sure to be ready for this game.

"John Terry and Frank Lampard are both very important players. They are two symbols of this team and leaders on the pitch. It's also good for Chelsea that they now have Didier Drogba and Michael Essien back after the Africa Cup of Nations."
