Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is set to restore his first-team regulars for the game after making 10 alterations to his side for the FA Cup defeat at Bolton.

The likes of Michel Vorm, Steven Caulker, Neil Taylor, Joe Allen, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Danny Graham are all set to return to face the Blues, but on-loan midfielder Josh McEachran is unavailable for selection against his parent club.

Frank Lampard, meanwhile, is rated 50-50 for Chelsea.

Lampard (calf) missed Saturday’s FA Cup win at QPR and may return in place of Ramires, who could face three to four weeks on the sidelines with medial ligament damage.

Gary Cahill looks a certain starter, with skipper John Terry ruled out with a knee injury.

John Obi Mikel (hamstring) remains out, while Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou are still on African Nations Cup duty.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Tate, Britton, Orlandi, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Rangel, Allen, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Sigurdsson.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Hutchinson, Bertrand, Cole, Romeu, Essien, Mata, Malouda, Meireles, Torres, Sturridge, Lukaku, Turnbull.
