Their last defeat came away to Stoke in December and while the Londoner’s have recovered from that setback the same can’t be said for the Potters.

Mark Hughes side have won just twice, once in the league, in the intervening 9 games since and with the club just four points clear of the relegation zone the club could be forgiven for having their minds elsewhere on Sunday.

Team News

Chelsea look set to maximise their squad for the game with Demba Ba likely to be given some game time up front.

The Senegal forward was rumoured to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge during the transfer window but an injury to Fernando Torres has forced a re-think and Ba will remain in London for now.

The 28 year old has not played since the league cup loss to Sunderland but with Jose Mourinho set to rest Samuel Eto’o a rare start is set to come the striker’s way.

Juan Mata will not be in the squad as he finalises his move to Manchester United while his probable replacement at Chelsea Mohamed Salah won’t have his transfer from Basle completed in time.

Stoke meanwhile could recall stopper Asmir Begovic following his recovery from a broken finger with his desire to return to action so soon impressing the Potters coaching staff.

“He is certainly putting himself forward for the match on Sunday, so a decision will have to be made,” said Stoke’s assistant boss Mark Bowen.

“In World Cup year you might forgive Asmir for wanting to give it longer because of having one eye on the summer, but he’s been out there every day.”

Striker Kenwyne Jones could be recalled after being dropped from the squad for the clash with Crystal Palace after his previous refusal to play against Liverpool.

Recent signing John Guidetti, on loan from Manchester City, could feature after making his debut in the loss to Palace.

Stoke face a tough ask against a Chelsea side that has won 10 and drawn one of their 11 league and cup games at Stamford Bridge since they were last beaten there by Basel in September.
