TEAM NEWS

QPR news

Warnock will be without striker DJ Campbell for the visit of the Blues as he is sidelined with a cracked metatarsal.

The 29-year-old suffered the injury during a training session ahead of their Rovers clash and he will now be missed for at least six weeks.

Heidar Helguson led the line in the Rs' 1-1 draw with Blackburn and he should retain his place in the side after scoring.

Talisman Adel Taarabt is pushing for a recall having emerged from the bench against Steve Kean's side.

Defender Daniel Gabbidon (knee), striker Rob Hulse (knee) and midfielder Kieron Dyer (foot) are all unavailable for Warnock.

CHELSEA news

Villas-Boas is expected to ring the changes again for the short trip to QPR with John Terry and Didier Drogba expected to be recalled.

Fernando Torres was recalled against Genk, but he will be missing as he serves the final game of his three-match domestic ban.

Drogba should be back in place of Torres up front while captain Terry should come in for Brazilian David Luiz at the back.

Spain international Juan Mata was also missing in midweek after being rested and he could replace Florent Malouda in the team.

In-form Daniel Sturridge could also be recalled having scored an impressive four goals in his last four Premier League starts.

Ramires and Michael Essien are missing for the visitors with knee injuries.
