Team news for Tuesday night's Capital One Cup third-round clash between Chelsea and Wolves at Stamford Bridge.
John Terry's availability for Chelsea remained in doubt on Monday afternoon as he began his Football Association racism hearing.
Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo said on Saturday "we'll see" when asked about the availability of Terry, who denies using a racist slur against Anton Ferdinand.
Di Matteo, who remains without Daniel Sturridge (hamstring), may have planned to rest his captain anyway and confirmed he plans to field some fringe and youth players, which could mean debuts for the likes of Marko Marin and Cesar Azpilicueta and a full debut for Victor Moses.
Wolves are set to field a much-changed line-up, with manager Stale Solbakken stating as many as "nine or 10" new faces could be included.
Solbakken, who boasts no new injury problems or suspensions, is set to hand starting berths to the likes of David Davis, Danny Batth, Stephen Hunt, Ronald Zubar, Frank Nouble and Georg Margreitter.
Solbakken's intentions are not so much a sign of his priorities this season but more his belief in rest and recuperation. Wanderers have played three games in six days as they battle through a gruelling Championship campaign and face a further three in seven - starting at Stamford Bridge.
"Many of them will have a well-deserved break but, having said that, I think the team I'm putting out can do exactly the same as the team I could have put out - they are hungry and waiting for their chance," Solbakken said.
"They are also fresh and I think that will be a big difference, if you meet Chelsea with many players who have played three games in six days they will struggle to cope with the fitness level that is demanded in a game like that.
"I have complete faith that the players who haven't played so much so far will do a good job, perhaps a better job."
