Striker Kevin Doyle is set to return to the Wolves squad following a thigh injury.

Steven Mouyokolo is still out with an ongoing back complaint, while Michael Mancienne's knee problem rules him out.

Karl Henry has recovered from a knee injury and is training. He is likely to be available for the FA Cup game against Doncaster at the weekend.

Jody Craddock (hip and thigh) has also begun training.

Michael Kightly (knee) and Adlene Guedioura (leg) are long-term absentees.

Carlo Ancelotti's injury problems are easing with his Blues squad reporting no new injuries after the draw against Aston Villa.

Defender Alex is still recovering from the knee operation he underwent four weeks ago and Yuri Zhirkov is still unfit. He is also still missing long-term injury victim Yossi Benayoun.

Branislav Ivanovic, however, returns from suspension.

Wolves (from): Hahnemann, Foley, Jarvis, Jones, Ward, Fletcher, Ebanks-Blake, Stearman, Mujangi Bia, Halford, Milijas, Elokobi, Hill, Hennessey, Hunt, Bent, Zubar, Batth, Doyle.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Ferreira, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Bruma, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Kalou, Essien, Lampard, Anelka, Sturridge, Drogba, Malouda, Turnbull, Van Aanholt, McEachran, Mellis.
