Sunday’s evening kick-off in the Emirates FA Cup sees Chelsea take on Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues return to action just three days after beating English Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur at The Bridge in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup to secure their first appearance in a cup final this season.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is likely to make several changes to his starting XI for the match. The Italian is set to hand second choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero a recall while the likes of Davide Zappacosta, Emerson Palmieri and Ethan Ampadu could all feature for The Blues.
Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be handed a late fitness test while new loan signing Gonzalo Higuain is unlikely to be risked.
Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday arrive in South West London on the back on new boss Steve Bruce’s first win since taking charge earlier this month, a 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic last weekend.
Loanee Wednesday defender Michael Hector is ineligible to face parent club Chelsea while fellow defenders Kieran Lee and Matt Penney are ruled out through injury.
Midfielder Josh Onomah and striker Gary Hooper will also be unavailable for the match as they continue to battle their respective injury problems.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 6pm on Sunday evening and will be screened live on BBC One.
