Liverpool will be looking for a quick bounce back from the EPL defeat to West Bromwich on Monday when they travel to take on Russian side Zenit St Petersburg with manager Brendan Rodgers signaling his intent by naming a very strong traveling party.

Injured striker Daniel Sturridge remains home, but the likes of Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Jose Reina and Jamie Carragher all making the trip to Russia.

Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho are ineligible for European Cup games.

Chelsea, after crashing out of the Champions League the year after winning the trophy for the first time, travel to Prague with captain John Terry making the trip and could start on Thursday.

There will be no Demba Ba, who ineligible after featuring for Newcastle United in the group stages of the competition, while David Luiz is suspended.

Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel also missed out, having just returned from their successful African Nations Cup campaign with Nigeria last Sunday.

Elsewhere, EPL on form side Tottenham will host Lyon at White Hart Lane, with former Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris set to start on the bench. Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed that veteran keeper Brad Friedel will start in goal. Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is also expected to start.

Newcastle United will look to put their dismal run in the EPL behind them when they take on Metalist Kharkiv at St James’ Park in Newcastle.
