Nemanja Matic makes an immediate return from suspension as Chelsea attempt to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Paris St Germain for a second successive season.

The Blues drew the last-16 first leg 1-1 in Paris three weeks ago and are at full strength for the return, with midfielder Matic back from a two-match ban in place of Kurt Zouma in the solitary change to the side which won at West Ham last week.
