Joe Cole starts at last for Chelsea

Joe Cole will make his first appearance of the season when Chelsea hosts Queens Park Rangers in the League Cup on Wednesday.
The midfielder has been sidelined since January because of a ruptured knee ligament which required surgery.
Assistant manager Ray Wilkins said Tuesday both Cole and recent signing Yuri Zhirkov would make their first starts in the third round of English football's third tier competition.
But Chelsea rests stars such as striker Nicolas Anelka and defender Ricardo Carvalho while striker Didier Drogba is out with a leg muscle injury.
