Chelsea will be looking to notch another home win in the English Premier League when Stoke City are the visitors to SW6 on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues are within a point of second placed Manchester United in the league table while four points from an available six gathered by visitors Stoke City over the Christmas period has helped ease some of the pressure on The Potters boss Mark Hughes.
Chelsea go into their latest fixture with no new injury concerns. Ousted Brazilian centre-back David Luiz remains the main absentee with the player continuing to be sidelined by a knee problem. Young Danish defender Andreas Christensen is available for selection once again after recovering from a recent illness.
Stoke City arrive in South West London re-energised following their recent positive results. The Potters have a number of defensive injury problems ahead of the match with Ryan Shawcross, Bruno Martins Indi and Glen Johnson all set to be unavailable while on loan Blues centre-back Kurt Zouma is ineligible to face his parent club.
Dutch full-back Erik Pieters could return to The Potters squad after recovering from a hamstring problem sustained before Christmas.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and has not been selected for live television coverage.
