Chelsea No2 Wilkins: We're keen for Zhirkov to get started

Chelsea No2 Ray Wilkins says they're keen to hand Yuri Zhirkov a start in tonight's Carling Cup tie with QPR.

He said: "Zhirkov is a very fluid footballer.

"He's been out for quite a period but, if he demonstrates half of what he's shown in training, then we've got a very pleasant player on our books."
