Didier Drogba returns to Stamford Bridge tonight and will be looking to pile more misery onto his former employers, as he lines up for his new one, Galatasaray in the second-leg of their last sixteen tie.

Despite a minor blip in the league on Saturday against Aston Villa, where Willian and Ramires both saw red before Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands after arguing his point against the latter players' dismissal, Chelsea will look to forget about the result as quickly as possible and will go into the match as favourites.

The game is perfectly balanced after the two sides played out a first leg draw in Istanbul, where an early Fernando Torres goal was cancelled out by Aurelien Chedjou midway through the second-half.

By the end of this round of matches Chelsea could be England's last representative in Europe this season. 

So here, we take a look at 10 of the main talking points surrounding Chelsea ahead of tonight's match at Stamford Bridge.
