Barcelona says Henry will travel for Chelsea game

Barcelona striker Thierry Henry will travel with the team for the Champions League semifinal second leg against Chelsea this week despite picking up a knock in Saturday's 6-2 rout of Real Madrid.
Coach Pep Guardiola has included Henry in a 21-man squad, even though he suffered a right knee injury and had to be withdrawn against Madrid, and did not practice on Monday.
Suspended team captain Carles Puyol will also make the trip, the team said on its Web site.
The only Barcelona regulars who will not travel to London are Rafael Marquez and Gaby Milito, both of whom are injured.
Barcelona and Chelsea drew 0-0 in the first leg last week at the Nou Camp.
Henry scored twice against Madrid to help Barcelona tighten its grip at the top of La Liga.
