Chelsea FC are the current leaders of the England Premier League; but they suffered a narrow defeat in their last match on the road against Aston Villa. The Blues had to complete the match with nine man; because Willia and Ramires were sent off by refree Chris Foy. In the first leg, they took the lead with Torres; but then Chedjou levelled the game. At the Stamford Bridge, coach Jose Mourinho's side were almost perfect so far this season. They lost only one fixture which was against Basel. They also got two draws against West Ham and WBA. Ashley Cole and Marco van Ginkel will miss out. Mohamed Salah and Nemanja Matic are ineligible. Samuel Eto'o did not feature in the last league match; but he is expected to be fit to play along with David Luiz on the match day.
