Fulham will be without Bryan Ruiz for after the forward suffered a suspected broken foot at Bolton on Saturday.

Veteran midfielder Danny Murphy (illness) could return and strikers Pavel Pogrebnyak (ankle) and Orlando Sa (hamstring) will hope to prove their fitness.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell (hernia), defender Zdenek Grygera (knee) and striker Andrew Johnson (thigh) remain on the sidelines.

Chelsea will reassess John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Ramires.

All four missed Saturday’s last-gasp win over Wigan, with Terry not risked due to his cracked ribs, Lampard (thigh) and Cole (ankle) also injured and Ramires ill.

Interim manager Roberto Di Matteo will assess how his other players reacted to the first of two games in just over 48 hours.

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Kelly, JA Riise, Hangeland, Hughes, Duff, Murphy, Dembele, Diarra, Kacaniklic, Dempsey, Pogrebnyak, Baird, Senderos, Etuhu, Frei, Davies, Trotta, Sa, Gecov, Kasami, BH Riise, Halliche.

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