Home » EPL, Latest » Match Preview: Chelsea vs Wigan

Chelsea will be without John Terry and Ashley Cole, while Frank Lampard is extremely doubtful for tomorrow’s Premier League game against Wigan.

Terry will not be risked due to his cracked ribs, while Cole (ankle) and Lampard (thigh) picked up knocks in Wednesday night’s Champions League win over Benfica.

Caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo was not ruling the trio out of Monday night’s trip to Fulham at this juncture.

Wigan are boosted by the return of midfielder Mohamed Diame for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Diame has missed the last two games with a groin injury, but has trained the last two days and is almost certain to at least be on the bench.

However, manager Roberto Martinez is again without striker Hugo Rodallega due to a knee injury that is likely to keep him on the sidelines for another 10 days.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Bertrand, Mikel, Romeu, Essien, Meireles, Ramires, Mata, Malouda, Drogba, Torres, Sturridge, Kalou, Turnbull.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Kirkland, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa, Alcaraz, Stam, Lopez, Gohouri, Beausejour, Watson, Moses, Crusat, McArthur, McCarthy, Jones, Gomez, Thomas, Diame, Maloney, Sammon, Di Santo.
