Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed that Ashley Cole will return for this weekend's FA Cup semi-final.

The England left-back has missed the Blues' last two matches with an ankle injury but is available for Sunday's Wembley meeting with Tottenham whilst captain John Terry, currently carrying rib problem, is expected to start.

"Ashley trained today and is fine, he's available," Di Matteo said.

"It's a good time to have him back. John Terry came through training fine too."
