Fernando Torres is back in the starting line-up and there is no David Luiz so Branislav Ivanovic returns to central defence.

The midfield is unchanged from Wednesday's game against Southampton so Frank Lampard continues as captain.

Arsenal are unchanged from their FA Cup win over Swansea. They are without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski due to illness so Olivier Giroud will lead their attack with Theo Walcott expected to play in a wide position.

Per Mertesacker is preferred to Laurent Koscielny in central defence.

Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:

1 Petr Cech
28 Cesar Azpilicueta
24 Gary Cahill
2 Branislav Ivanovic
3 Ashley Cole
7 Ramires
8 Frank Lampard (c)
17 Eden Hazard
10 Juan Mata
11 Oscar
9 Fernando Torres

Substitutes: 22 Ross Turnbull, 19 Paulo Ferreira, 26 John Terry, 34 Ryan Bertrand, 57 Nathan Ake, 21 Marko Marin, 29 Demba Ba.
