The club were on course for all three points before Robin Van Persie struck in injury time.
The result was compounded by a red card for Branislav Ivanovic. The defender was ruled out of the narrow 2-1 win over Shrewsbury midweek but is expected to return.
Fellow defender Cesar Azpilicueta is out through suspension however meaning Felipe Luis continues at left back while Loic Remy is also out with a groin strain.
Diego Costa is set to return however. The Brazilian forward is likely to replace Didier Drogba, scorer of three goals in his last three games in the starting XI. Another Brazilian, Ramires, is also set to re-join the squad after shaking off a groin problem.
While Chelsea have been in impressive form, QPR have struggled. That was until last weekend’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa. Harry Redknapp’s side showed their fighting qualities to grab a first 3 points of the season with Charlie Austin grabbing both goals.
The win moved the club to within two points of safety. The club will be without Rio Ferdinand for the game after the defender was banned for three games and fined £25,000 for an inappropriate tweet. The absence of the veteran will ensure that there is no showdown with John Terry.
Ferdinand and Terry fell out over the latter’s alleged racial abuse of his brother.
In addition to being without Ferdinand, the club will also be without Jordon Mutch, Joey Barton and Nedum Onuoha
