Chelsea handed triple boost ahead of PSG showdown
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Chelsea were handed a triple boost ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League showdown against Paris Saint-Germain.
Injury doubts John Terry and Oscar were pictured in training with the rest of the Chelsea squad at their Cobham headquarters on Monday, while Alexandre Pato also took part in the session with the full squad.
Terry limped out of Chelsea’s 5-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday in the first half after tweaking his hamstring in an aerial tussle with Aleksandar Mitrovic, while Oscar missed the match with a calf injury.
But both players are set to be named in the squad that was due to fly from London to Paris on Monday afternoon for the first leg of the last-16 Champions League clash.

January signings Pato and Matt Miazga also took part in Monday’s training session, although the Brazilian striker is unlikely to travel with the squad as he continues to build up his fitness.

On-loan Pato has not played since November and manager Guus Hiddink has said he is not yet ready for the intensity of top-level football.
