Chelsea will likely be without Eden Hazard for their Carabao Cup quarter-final against Bournemouth.
The Belgian winger limped off with a foot injury during the 2-1 win over Brighton last weekend following a hefty challenge from Dale Stephens.
Blues manager Maurizio Sarri is unlikely to risked his star man, while striker Alvaro Morata is also sidelined with a knee injury.
Sarri has fielded a much-changed line-up in cup competitions so far this season and is expected to do so again with Cesc Fabregas and Ross Barkley hopeful of starting against the Cherries.
Olivier Giroud should get the nod up front while Pedro and Willian are both in line to start out wide, although youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is also in contention.
Meanwhile, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also set to return to the starting line-up with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic rested.
Willy Caballero should replace Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal while Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen are Sarri’s second-choice centre-back pairing.
Ethan Ampadu is also available and has been utilised in the Europa League but did not feature in the previous rounds against Liverpool and Derby.

Reserve full-backs Davide Zappacosta and Emerson Palmieri are both in the frame to start against Eddie Howe’s side, who have a host of injury issues.
Adam Smith, Lewis Cook and Dan Gosling are all injured while Simon Francis and Tyrone Mings are also ruled out for the visitors.
Chelsea will hope to take advantage and book their place in the next round alongside Manchester City and Burton Albion.
Arsenal and Tottenham face off in the other quarter-final at the Emirates tonight, while Chelsea are back in Premier League action against Leicester on Saturday.
