Team News:

Chelsea remain without striker Samuel Eto'o (hamstring), so Fernando Torres or Demba Ba could be handed a start up front.

Defender Ashley Cole (knee) is back in contention, while January signings Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are available again after being ineligible to play against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek.

Ramires misses the game as he serves the final game of his three-match domestic suspension, while Marco van Ginkel (knee) remains sidelined.

Stoke have Jonathan Walters back from suspension.

On-loan winger Oussama Assaidi and defender Robert Huth (both knee) remain unavailable.

What they've said ahead of kick-off:

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho (on Fernando Torres): "Yes, he has a future. Obviously everybody wants to improve and we want to improve, that's normal and basic. He has a contract, he's a good professional, he works hard for the team and brings positive things to the team.

"Obviously we want him to score more goals, obviously he wants to score more goals, it's not just me that wants it, he wants it. During his time at the club he's had moments, some of them important moments. But with long periods performing, sometimes in and sometimes out, he hasn't had a lot of stability in his performances."

Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "I think it’s fair to say that their form at the moment isn't where they would expect it to be. What you find with top clubs though is they bounce back very quickly, and when questions are asked, top players and top teams more often than not they tend to have the answers.

"We have to be mindful of a backlash, but we are in a good place at the moment, and if there is ever a good time to go to a place like Stamford Bridge then that is when you are in better form than Chelsea, which we possibly are at the moment."
