Jose Mourinho is expected to make some changes from the side that lost 3-1 to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Petr Cech is still out with a shoulder injury so Mark Schwarzer will remain in goal but Nemanja Matic is almost certain to return to the side having been ineligible in midweek.
Ramires is still suspended so Frank Lampard could return after being banned in Europe while Andre Schurrle is likely to start in attack having come off the bench against Atletico.

Mohamed Salah could replace Willian in attack after being ineligible in midweek while Samuel Eto’o is favourite to start up front despite giving away the crucial penalty that saw Madrid take a 2-1 lead on Wednesday.
